We train twice weekly at Holt Park
Tuesday & Fridays 7.30pm to 8.30opm 

"Tai Sabaki Do" literally means  "the way of the avoiding body" and our style is founded on the kicking/punching and katas of Wado Ryu adapted to a 21st century self defence style.

We practice a range of self delense applications including : weapons and multiple attackers as well as the more traditional basics and kata's. We do not practice kumite or sparring as part of our grading syllabi but do occasional spar to teach focus and controlled aggression.

The club has been running for nearly 40 years our black belt instructors include : Sensei Eric Davison, Sensei Philip Knight, Sensei Balhar Bhacu and Sensei Jack Hartley and are founder members of the Amateur Martial Association in Yorkshire.
