Summer School bookings openhttp://www.karatedoshotokai.com/viewNewsArticle.php?article=409Summer School will once again take place in August (12th - 20th) at the University of Kent in Canterbury.

The earlier you register the less likely it will be that you will miss this great opportunity to practise at a sustained high level. It also greatly reduces the administrative burden associated with running the course.

Finally, please note that there is a penalty of £50 for all applications received later than the 11th June. We are continuing to offer an additional student discount of £50, as well as an additional discount of £50 for first time attendees.

The closing date for all applications is 16th July. Unfortunately, late applications cannot be accommodated as we have to finalise the numbers with the University by that date.

Please also note that late cancellations will lose their deposit, as we have to pay the University once we confirm the numbers.

All applications for this course are to made through the members only area of the site. Anyone having trouble should speak to their club membership secretary.
