Covid-19 July Update - A Safe Return To Judo
With UK Gov guidance permitting the return of indoor sport from 25th July, we are returning to the dojo for non-contact judo-based exercise sessions at the end of July.
All sessions for July and August are now fully booked, existing members need to contact us to book sessions for September onwards.
We are unable to accommodate new starters at the moment, due to UK Gov and British Judo restrictions on maximum occupancy. We hope to be able to welcome new starters and visitors back to our dojo before the end of the year, once the restrictions have been relaxed.
