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.
