Over the next few weeks a number of ABWK members will be travelling to Japan to train with the JKF Masters. ABWK will be represented by members from Chester-le-Street Wadokai, Cumbria Wadokai, Glossop Wadokai and Teesside Wadokai.

If you’d like to keep up with the latest news from the trip make sure you follow @abwadokai on Twitter as there will be regular updates throughout the trip. Or, if you are not on twitter, the club’s twitter feed is now available on the homepage for all to view.

Please note also that during August the licence officers will be travelling to Japan and therefore will not be able to take any applications for licences. Also, as a consequence of the trip there will be a number of clubs closed, the list of affected clubs is available to view here.
