  • What should I wear?

Breathable, comfortable clothing and shoes is best - think what you'd wear to go to the gym, do yoga, or go to play lazer tag!

  • I've never done Judo/Karate/Taekwondo before?

These sessions are designed for you as a complete novice, to pick up some useful techniques in self defence in a safe and welcoming environment!

  • Do I have to prebook?

Our sessions will be operated on a first come, first serve basis - meaning anyone can come along! For safety reasons, we have a maximum capcity of 30 people, meaning if we go over that number, we'd then need to turn any additional arrivals away! 

  • Where is Studio 2? What is the Sports and Wellness Hub?

You can find the sports and wellness hub based on the main campus. It's a 7 minute from the Warwick University Bus Interchange, heading straight on the footpath near the Radcliffe Conference centre.
