The Dojo is a busy place, but they can often make room for a kids birthday party, an evening meeting or a workshop.


Several clubs use the Dojo – the timetable information on the Poneke Dojo website is for the Kyokushin Karate Club, which is the main club that uses the Dojo, but not the only club.

Please enquire about availability as the Dojo is sometimes available for one-off events.
