J.R.’s Karate Club and COVID-19

As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve day-to-day in Canada, the primary focus of J.R.’s karate Club is protecting the health and safety of our community.   In order to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Hamilton Wentworth Recreation facilities is shutting down until April 5, 2020.

All karate classes and the Open House will be cancelled during this period.  Hopefully we will reopen on April 7, 2020.  Please watch your email for our updates.  Meanwhile, stay home and be safe.
