Spring Camp 2020 **Update**

Spring Camp 13th  – 15th March 2020

**UPDATE** 11/03/2020

Due to the biggest increase in COVID19 cases in the last 24 hours, the senior committee have made the decision to postpone the senior spring camp until it is safe.

As you know we ideally would like to continue training but for the safety of all our members we feel this is the best course of action at this time.

We will continue to run all classes until further notice. If you have any questions please contact your Sensei.


**UPDATE** 08/03/2020

Due to recent concerns for health and safety of members and families, the senior committee have decided to reduce the senior camp to a single day – Sat 14th March starting 9am – 5pm. The day camp will be at the same location – Parkwood Camp site.

We will run sessions throughout the day with a break for Lunch. The cost for the camp will be £10 but we ask students to please bring their own lunch. As you know it’s important to us to keep training and enjoy your time in the Dojo, so we hope you can join us.

For more information please contact your Sensei.


Welcome back to Parkwood Scout Camp for 2020!
This year our March camp will be held at Parkwood Scout Camp. This is another new venue for us, with some fantastic outside and inside areas to train in.

Parkwood camp is situated within the South Downs National Park, and has 23 acres of ancient woodland. With meditation spaces and areas of open space and woodland to train in, this will be another new experience for our school.

I’ve not been to camp before, what can I expect?
Lots of Karate training (outdoor and indoor), lots of focused practice, time to reflect, learn and meditate, lots of fun enjoying the new experiences this venue has to offer.

Expect the unexpected….. and try something new.

Should I be concerned about my grade / fitness levels?
No, camp has something to offer everyone. You will be challenged more so than when training in the dojo, but camp is varied to suit everyone’s fitness and ability.  If you have any concerns, please talk to your instructor.

Are there any age / grade restrictions?

  • The training camp is open to everyone over the age of 14 years. For students aged 13, please discuss potential attendance directly with your instructor.
