St Athan Jitsu is Moving

I am pleased to announce that we wil be moving to a larger venue from next week. Starting on Friday 4th October we will be training in the Paul Lewis Community Centre. Only the venue will be changing. Timings will remain the same, Juniors from 6pm to 7:30pm and Seniors from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. This is the same venue that we used recently for the Summer Course and BBQ.

Don’t mess with me!
