Fantastic to see our UK clubs back in the Dojo this month. An important reminder that everyone training in the Dojo (and Hombu) MUST have an active licence.
Your licence includes your membership to the EKF - our governing body.
Your licence includes 3rd party insurance. If you are unlicensed you are uninsured to train and you put yourself, other students, and your instructors and club at risk.
Not everyone was able to train during lockdown. If you took a training break (as confirmed by your club instructor) your licence will restart from now.
You can buy a licence on-line now at members.ishinryu.net/buy_licence (no login or password required)
You can also pay your club instructor for a licence BEFORE you train. So, if you have lapsed, remember to also bring your licence payment to the first session you attend. ... See MoreSee Less
First Woodlane training session in our Dojo last night, and after an enforced break of 6 months, everything went really well - it was as if we had never been away. A real privilege to be training under sensei Chris Vant again with a group of hardworking students.
Thanks to everyone who attended our first session last night. We are back on Thursday at 7 p.m. and after that, every Monday and Thursday going forward. Guests from other clubs are always welcome, but please let us know in advance if you plan to come (as required under ongoing Covid rules). ... See MoreSee Less
