How to Join The Budo Martial Arts Centre, Kilkenny

Welcome to the Exciting Martial Art of Karate-do

If you have done your trial class and wish to become a member of the club please see the section at the end of this page ‘Choose a Membership‘.

Class schedule for 6 Years and up, including teenagers and adults

Note: Due to the Country going on to Level 5 we are now operating a temporary class timetable.  All students should train as much as they can during this period. We may return training indoors depending on any government updates. All kids should be dropped to the training area and collected at the end of the class. Parents should wait in the car park in their cars and collect their child promptly at the end of the class.

7:30pm-8:15pm Online Karate Class Delivered Through Zoom (all students will be sent the zoom code by email, we will use the same zoom code each week)

11am-11:45am Outdoor Karate Class for White to Blue Belts
11:45am-12:30pm Outddor Karate Class for Purple to Black Belts

11am-11:45am Outdoor Karate Class for White to Blue Belts
11:45am-12:30pm Outddor Karate Class for Purple to Black Belts

All outdoor classes will be held in the Astro Turf Pitch in the Watershed. If an outdoor class can not go ahead due to bad weather we will post an update on our Facebook Page by 10:30m that day (4pm of a Wednesday). In that case we will run an online class the same day at 12pm (5pm of a Wednesday) so everybody still gets the option to train. Online classes are open to all grades/ages.

This timetable of classes will keep us active and training until we are in a position to return to training indoors.

Please ignore the timetable below until further notice. There is no need to pre-book classes while we are operating our temporary timetable. When training outside we will train in pods of up to 15 (non contact) so we follow government recommendations. Students should wear trainers/runners and appropriate clothing for outdoor training.

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. We are now taking 6 years old children in our karate kids classes. Children younger than this can only attend at the moment if they are training with an adult family member on our mixed age group classes.
