Join our beginners' course in August!

The course is suitable for both men and women, boys and girls. The minimum age is 14 years.

You may start with any class. We recommend to attend the full course, though, as the units loosely build on each other.

  • Sunday, 18 August, 6–7 pm @ TVW
  • Monday, 19 August, 6:30–7:30 pm @ LLS
  • Sunday, 25 August, 6–7 pm @ TVW
  • Monday, 26 August, 6:30–7:30 pm @ LLS

Please arrive 15 mins early. For the beginning, long sweatpants and a sleeved top are sufficient. We practise barefoot.

Please remember to bring the 20 EUR course fee to the first class you attend. It is a flat fee, i.e. independent of the number of classes you go to, but we will waive your sign-up fee if you join the dojo afterwards

If you have more questions, please read our FAQ page.

During the course, regular classes continue at the usual times.
