10-11 July, Oxford, black and brown belt

Oxford University KDS held the last course before the Pandemic lockdown and is proud to host the first course after the easing of the Pandemic.

We regret that due to the Pandemic, both the Government and the University restrictions, we are unable to welcome overseas members to this course.  We will however hope to be able to do so soon.
