ALL Training must be Booked online through the Dojo Login app and we have limited spaces. All participants must be Members or Registered Trial Members.
Everything is online as we remain in Level 5 lockdown but from April 26th we will be once again able to offer Outdoor sessions to Children only. We will be trying to stay as close to our 'normal' schedule as possible with replacement outdoor locations instead.
We hope Adults outdoor training will follow swiftly but from April 26th that will remain Online.
New Dojo Login App
As well as linking this website to your phone and having a Hombu Dojo button on your screen - from April 6th we will be moving to bookings through the Dojo Login app. This app will link to your account, have your QR code, show your belts, your payments and you will be able to book training sessions through the app as well as have instant notifications that a session is moving (when we get back to outside training). Everyone should have received their log in details by email.
