Christmas 2021

Monday, December 20th, 2021

Hi Everyone, We are nearing the end of another strange and difficult year. A big thanks to the instructors and all of you who have supported the classes since we opened a few months ago. Hopefully, things will improve in 2022, fingers crossed! We look forward to welcoming past and new members too next year.

With very best wishes to Ric and members of Stratford Phoenix and to Dean and his members from Glasgow Aikido.

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a safe and healthy 2022.

The club will open from Tuesday 4th January and junior Aikido from Saturday 8th January.

Returning to Aikido

Enter the club by the normal reception entrance where your temperature will be taken.

Please do not attend if showing any symptoms or have a cough/cold.

You will be required to provide contact details for test and trace and to fill in an “opt in” form.

Spectators are not allowed to wait in the reception area. The entrance door will be locked during practice.

Sanitizer will be provided to be used before and after the session.

There will be a one way system so you will exit the dojo from the exit door at the bottom.

Please bring your own weapons which can be sanitized after use.

The timetable is obviously restricted at the moment and sadly we can only welcome students of 16+ years.

The date we are starting is Tuesday May 18th Class at 8pm-9.15pm

Thursday 8pm-9.15pm Sunday 11am-12noon

The classes will be weapons practice as we are not allowed contact at the moment.

A Saturday junior class will be starting in June. I will confirm nearer the time.

Looking forward to seeing you all


Merry Christmas!

It has been a tough year for most and all we can do is hope that 2021 is kinder to us all.

Thank you to all the instructors, big thanks to Lisa, Natalie and Julia for the online classes and thankyou to you all for supporting them.

We will obviously keep you informed of any changes and look forward to when we can all get together again.

Wishing you all a safe and happy Christmas and a much better 2021
