We are aware that during this time our Martial Arts tuition may not be available to you or your children in the usual format but we will endeavour to do our best to ensure live training is still delivered to you directly online so you or your child continue to develop even whilst we can’t see you face to face.

The planned November Gradings for all clubs will now be put back to December when we are able to return to our venues. Whilst we run our online classes we will continue the syllabus work in order to prepare all students for grading that wish to take part.

Our dedication is to provide continuous tuition to you or your child and support your training journey as best we can. We ask during this difficult time that you offer us the same dedication and support so we can teach you or your child for years to come.

In addition we will be running weekly competitions for the children to get involved in with prizes.

Please feel free to message or call if you have any queries or need any guidance with your training.

Yours faithfully

The Advantage Team
