Southville Classes

Due to Covid restrictions, we have had to temporarily move our classes to a new venue. For the rest of 2020 we will be training in the school hall at Ashton Park School, Blackmoors Lane, Bower Ashton, Bristol BS3 2JL

Southville is the newest of our clubs – it started up in 2002 and has grown to be one of our largest and most popular clubs. The club has a really good mix of men and women (and boys and girls!), plus a good age range, and now has a number of it’s own ‘home grown’ black belts as well as those who visit regularly from the other clubs. Located in a young and vibrant community, the Southville club definitely has our most active social scene, with regular after training ‘get togethers’ (that’s one way of describing them anyway!). We’re a very friendly bunch and we love welcoming new beginners into the club.
