Wales KDS extends a warm welcome to All Grades to participate in the exciting forthcoming National Course hosted in the Welsh capital of Cardiff.

The theme for the 4 sessions over the 3 day weekend is to apply specific techniques from kata to ju ippon kumite, overseen by Harada Sensei’s Welsh 5th Dan Instructors.

We all look forward to training with you once more.

The Saturday social will be at Cardiff Bay, which is a 20 minute drive from training. 

If you are staying in the centre, it’s easy to walk to the bay, but you might want to organise a lift to training or get a taxi. Taxis are affordable because Cardiff is a small city and you’re never travelling far. 

The bus timetable can be a bit difficult to work out, but there are regular buses going to Heath hospital from most parts of the city.

Taxi numbers:

Dragon Taxi – 02920 333 333

Premier – 02920 555 555


There are some food outlets near the sports centre at the hospital concourse. Snacks and drinks are available from the sports centre front desk.

Showers are available, and there is free parking at the hospital multi storey car park. 


Friday evening

After a quick shower, we will drive/catch taxis to the nearby Panama Tandoori Restaurant. To join us, you must email your food choices to [email protected] before the 25 October.
