The Dojo is downstairs in the Finsbury Leisure Centre , which is just off Old Street on Iron Monger Row approximately 5 minutes walk from Old Street underground station – the nearest landmark is the spire of St Luke’s. The dojo is fully matted, with a sign on the door saying OAA (not ‘beware of the leopard’) and just round the corner from the changing rooms. If you end up fencing or doing a lot of shouting before punching people, you have gone too far. We only use wooden swords and sticks and only shout if in pain (or faking pain).
