PLEASE NOTE: We are not currently running our Karate Tots Classes as the Watershed are not allowing parents to stay in the Sport Hall during the class. As soon as this changes we will resume our Karate Tots classes. If you have a child who is 6 nearly 7 and you feel they would be able to manage the classes please come along. Note: At the moment younger children may come and train if they are with an adult family member who is training also.
