With current tier restrictions the re-opening of karate clubs are somewhat limited. All the risk assessments are in place ready for our reopening when such a time arises that our venues can accommodate us safely. I will update on the website when I have any further news. But, please be aware the government guidance requires some class changes. You will be made aware of these, via the website, when they can be finalised.
We have members of all ages and abilities and we take great pride in the achievements of our students. Several of our members have and continue to compete in regional, national and international competitions and have brought home various medals, trophies and places.
We believe that much of their success can be attributed to the Driffield Karate Academy and the support and commitment it gives to all its students. We thank them for their dedication and continued support of the club.
