Students of all ages can train at Woodlane, and we have always accepted students from the age of six upwards. However, in 2009 it was decided to open club in Collier Row, dedicated to children only. The idea came from Australian Ishinryu following a visit there by sensei Lee Smith. Lee saw the advantage of child friendly training with lessons designed specifically for the younger student. Ten years on and the Dragons club at Collier Row continues to thrive. At least three students, who first trained at Dragons, have progressed through to Ishinryu Black Belt.
