    1. Hi Gerard,

      We have a number of older students (older than you in fact) and training is very much an individual thing with individual needs catered for – beginners of all ages are very welcome to join us.

      We run adults classes each week day – the Classes link has the times.

      Prices are around £7 per session (or maybe cheaper if you train multiple times per week) and you pay only when you train; there are no contracts.

      To start, just loose fighting track suit type clothing is all that is required.

      Our dojo has a changing room and a bathroom but no shower facility currently.
