Of particular note this month:

1 – Two new classes
April will see the formal start of two new classes at the dojo – designed specifically for new and intermediate students and taught by Shane Duggan (4th dan shidoshi-ho) and Rex Dunlop (4th dan shidoshi-ho). As the dojo continues to grow in size, these classes are designed to make sure students of all grades and abilities get instruction specifically tailored to their needs.

2 – Kyu grade testing
Testing for kyu ranks will take place at 1.30pm on Saturday April 12th. Please let me know in advance if you’d like to be considered for testing for your next rank.

General notes

Fees

It’s possible to pay for each class individually, but if fees are paid for the month in advance on the first training session of the month, each class costs significantly less. It is not obligatory to attend any particular number of classes per month, but training at least twice a week is recommended for optimum progress. Reduced fees are also payable for people in full time education or out of work.

Open mat training
Open mat training is not a class, but rather an opportunity for members of the Dōjō to get time to practice what they feel they need to work on. There is no teacher at these sessions, but senior grades will be on hand to supervise. Sessions are announced in the main classes during the week and on the discussion board. Note: Open mat training is open to all students of the Bujinkan Meehan Dōjō, but only to students of other Dōjōs of 3rd Kyu brown belt and above.

Monthly workshops
A workshop is usually held once a month to allow time to explore a particular topic in depth.

Other classes
Occasionally, weekly classes are offered in particular aspects of Budo Taijutsu – these are announced in class. There are also occasionally classes in Japanese language and culture, first aid, meditiation and more.
