The club has also moved the venue from Cressage to Shrewsbury. We thank Ian for all his teaching and attendances at Headquarters over the years, and wish him the very best in his retirement. He will still be attendingn his Dan Grade group courses. We also wish all the best to David on taking over the teaching in the new area.
Taeko Kawano has closed the Chrystal Palace club, for the time being. She does expect to re-open her club later in the year.
At the moment, Sensei Aitkenhead will still be travelling to Paris to take the weekend course on the 4th & 5th April. It is possible that the situation may change due to the coronavirus.
