Woodlane Ishinryu Karate
Our club has been established for over 45 years and is dedicated to the teaching of traditional and competition Karate within the Dagenham and Romford (London/Essex) areas.
Woodlane Club News
Woodlane have re-opened in our new location in Gooshays Drive. Following our first lesson on September 7th, we now train each Monday and Thursday from 7.00 p.m through to 8.30 p.m.
The English Karate Federation (EKF) have advised that we can continue to train despite the ‘six-person’ restrictions introduced on 14 September. This is because Karate is recognised as an ‘organised team sport’.
Woodlane continue to follow all EKF advice on Covid safety including:
- Additional checks on arrival including a temperature check
- Recording of all attendance for track and trace
- Safe conduct in the Dojo including no-contact and maintaining social distancing throughout training
- Wearing of trainers in the Dojo
Please continue to check here, and on our Facebook group, for more detail. Students registered to Woodlane will receive more detailed updates via email.
Monday: 7 p.m. – 8.30 p.m.
Thursday: 7 p.m. – 8.30 p.m.
