Welcome Back!

After 124 long days of our dojo doors being closed, we're extremely excited to announce that we will be re-opening on 25th July 2020.

As we begin to reopen our dojo to get back to a new normal, so we can train and catch up on our fitness programmes, and get back to full force while adhering to government guidelines.

Reduced class capacity & timetable change:

We are opening our dojo with a reduced class capacity and minimizing congestion in reception spaces, to maintain social distancing guidelines. We will be extending our opening hours to ensure you are all able to continue to train even with the new class capacity.

Pre-booking group classes:

We're happy to announce our new online booking system so we are able to maintain our strict class capacity limits and keep you safe! It is vital that everyone pre-books group classes. This can be done by or calling the dojo on 0208 458 0888 to book in.

Membership

As we are reopening our dojo doors, current memberships will be unfrozen from 25th July 2020 although most of our members who pay on the 25th of the month have already prepaid and will not be charged until 25th August 2020.

Otherwise membership payments will start in 1st August 2020. A catch-up package will be offered to all qualifying memberships.

You will receive additional lessons for the time your dojo was closed in March. As we have four membership payment dates in each month, members will be credited accordingly. For those of you who have missed classes throughout your membership, please take the opportunity to email and we will calculate how many classes you have in credit and you can exchange these for personals/privates if you so wish.
