Genryukan students have got seriously lucky here. What a coup for our little dojo!

We are pleased to announce confirmation that Robert Mustard Sensei (7th Dan Yoshinkan) is coming to teach at Genryukan Dojo.

This special class will be on Tuesday 4th October 2011 from 7pm – 9.30pm (so the day immediately after the regular class), and is strictly limited to 20 students.

Price for this session is £20 per person.

Places will be filled on a first come first served basis. Once places are filled, we will then operate a wait list in case of drop outs between now and October.
