We look forward to seeing you in September.
Sincerely,
Sensei Joe

Summer classes postponed due to COVID-19

To protect the health and safety of the community from the spread of COVID-19, the Town of Hamilton is extending the facility closures up to the end of May 2020. This means that our summer season’s opening must be postponned.

J.R.’s Karate Club will NOT be cashing post dated checks for April and May 2020. They will be shredded and discarded in a responsible manner.

You will be informed via notifications like this one when our summer season start date will be; however, we are planning/hoping for June 2, 2020.

Although we are unable to welcome you to the club at this time, we look forward to seeing you when we re-open!

In the meantime, stay safe, wash your hands and be kind.

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.
