October Events

October is quite a busy month for the Club and there are some things to note below:

  • Sunday 12th October - the dojo will be closed due to the York City Marathon as most of the roads around the dojo will either be closed or have restricted access
  • Sunday 19th October - Sensei Frank Brennan is holding an all grades course in Sunderland followed by a Kata Masterclass on Tekki Sandan. More details HERE
  • Saturday 25th October - Northern Region Championships in Sunderland. Entry forms will be available from the dojo, on our Facebook page or can be downloaded HERE


Adults Only Class - Thursday Evenings

We have now started an Adults Only Evening Class on Thursdays at 7pm. The class is aimed at parents and adult members who either fancy starting karate or improving their techniques. The class will be structured so all levels can benefit and it will include fitness and conditioning exercise more suited to adults than in an all-age class. For more information please ask at the dojo.
