Our physical space, which is dedicated to karate only, comprises three fully equipped dojos with professional sports floors, mirrors and traditional Okinawan training equipment, changing rooms and shower facilities for men and women and a kitchen and café area with coffee tables, comfy sofas and a music system for socializing and the occasional party.
