National Course: Canterbury

Back to course list


You are cordially invited to Summer School 2018!

We will once again be hosted at the University of Kent in Canterbury, but this time in new accommodation at Turing house blocks. The course will begin with the welcome meeting and meal Saturday 11th August, followed by a week of over 30 hours intense training with the aim of improving jiu ippon. The formal meal on the final night will be followed by a ceilidh instead of the usual disco! We'll then disperse to various corners of the country/world with new knowledge/muscles Saturday morning (18th August).

Prices have been deliberately reduced this year to £260 for complete summer school novices, £310 for Kyu grades and students and £360 for black belt non-students. Registration and payment is through the new KDS website. Closing date for booking is 15th July to allow for rooms to be booked and suitably allocated by Ali.

T-shirts/polos are available by pre-order for £12/18 this year. We will of course have our on-site sports-masseuses, who are great at dealing with various strains and achey muscles at £17 for a half hour session. Finally, if for travel reasons you would like a room before the course starts on Friday 10th August, this will be booked for an additional £25.

We look forward to seeing you and having a rewarding week!

Register by going here.
