We are pleased to announce that we are now in a position to reopen our Tonypandy club.

The club will reopen for both adults and children on the 15th of September, with a slightly different start time of 19.15 for children and 20.15 for adults.

Unfortunately we no longer have use of the hall in Cardiff and as a result we are currently seeking a new venue in the area.

If anybody can assist or give us any suggestions in relation to this, please contact one of the instructors.

We look forward to welcoming you all back on the mat on the 15th.
