With the school shutting and the Government's advice to avoid non-essential contact with others, we are temporarily closing Reading Karate Club.
We'll review reopening as the situation develops and more information becomes available, but would anticipate being closed at least one month, and potentially several more.
Whilst this is disappointing; for our health, the health of others we come into contact with and the impact of the virus on public services, this is the correct decision to make.
During the time the club is closed, there is plenty we can do to keep healthy and maintain karate studies. The smallest of spaces at home, gardens and parks can become your Dojo and used for personal training.
Please be assured that this decision has not be taken lightly and thanks for your understanding. We wish you and your families all well and look forward to seeing everyone back in the Dojo soon.
