Covid-19 info

Due to Current Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to take on new members to the club,  because of this we have a waiting list in operation for both our early class which is currently running 18.15 - 19.00 and our main class running from 19.15 - 21.00.  As soon as restrictions are lifted allowing us to train more members at once, and dedicate some personal one on one time to new starters we will begin to welcome those on the waiting list into the club until then please check out our Facebook page @Haxby_Shotokan_Karate_Club where we will be posting photos and live videos of the training that we are undertaking at this time.  Or for more detail fill out the contact form below or email info@haxbykarate.co.uk.
