All training takes place in the Danielle Brown Sports Centre on campus: Map

Training sessions are split; beginners and lower grades train for the first half of the class, and then as they cool down the higher grade members will join in and warm up. Then the white belts are dismissed, and the class continues for the higher grades. Higher grades are still welcome to join in with the beginners and run through the basics if they wish; and is probably a good idea even if you think you don't need it ;).

Training will generally consist of a light warm-up followed by work on techniques using linework, patterns, padwork, and sparring. Sessions end with a cool down and stretching. Further sessions may be arranged on an ad-hoc basis depending on the availability of instructors; these usually focus on stamina and sparring training, particularly more advanced sparring techniques.

Training usually continues out of term time, depending on numbers and availability of instructors. These sessions are less formal, although are often just as hard work as normal sessions if not more so. Contact the Committee for out of term training details.

Students are encouraged to keep their fitness levels up and practice, especially patterns, when away from Uni for holidays etc., as this will lead to less of a shock when recommencing training. This especially applies to senior grades, who are expected to have to work in their own time to maintain acceptable levels of fitness and knowledge.

Please arrive in good time for training, thus allowing the session to start on time and avoiding disruption and the need for instructors to award penalty exercises.
