News and Events

August 2020 - Return to Training at the University

We are pleased to announce that the club will recommence training at the University of Brighton Sports Centre, Eastbourne, on Wednesday 2nd September 2020.

Training will start on both Mondays and Wednesdays at 18:30, but will now finish at 19:30. The training at the University will be supplemented by an online strength and stretch session on Fridays, 18:30 to 19:00.

Access to the University sports centre will be via the main entrance, beyond which a one way system will be in operation. Karateka will need to arrive in their gi ready to train as there will be no access to changing facilities. There will be limited access to toilets. All karateka will need to have at least two masks, one to arrive at the sports centre in, and a clean one to wear to leave the sports centre after training. Karateka will also need a plastic bag, preferrably a zip lock bag, in which to store any used masks.

During the training sessions we will be operating a 3 metre distancing rule for all parts of the sessions, with lines staggered so that karateka are not directly in front or behind anyone. The instructor will be off to the side. Karateka may wear a mask during training if they wish, but this will not be compulsory. 

 

As the club has restructured the training sessions, it is also appropriate to restructure the pricing. As from 1st September 2020 all dojo fees must be paid in advance online.  If you wish to have access to all of the training sessions, the monthly fee will be £35 for adults and £28 for children. For karateka who are unable to train at this number of sessions, there will now be a reduced fee of £20 for adults and £16 for children. This will allow kareteka to train a maximum of the equivalent of one session per week, plus the online sessions.

Dojo Fees as from 1st September 2020 

  Access to all sessions Access to limited sessions
Adult £35 £20
Child <16 £28 £16

March 2020 - Online Training Sessions

Last Wednesday saw the first of our online training sessions, and we will continue to run these sessions while we are unable to train at the dojo. A big thank you to Jane for getting this going at such short notice. The sessions will start at our usual training time of 18:30 every Wednesday, and all the information you need to access the sessions is available on our Facebook page. See you all remotely on Wednesday!

March 2020 Covid-19

As of Tuesday 17th March 2020, there will be no training at the club until further notice. It was agreed at the last training session that those members who pay their subs directly from their bank accounts should continue to do so. Once training recommences the additional money will be used to subsidise a special training session and possibly a grading by one of the KUGB’s senior instructors.
