The venue is in Tallaght off the Greenhills Road. It is in an industrial unit owned by the M.A.I (Muslim Association of Ireland). They have kindly given us permission to set up a dojo on their premises. The dojo has its own entrance at the side of the building and will be fitted out over time with all relevant training equipment such as mats, mirrors and punch bags. As karate is predominately about respect, honour and good will, we must observe the wishes and always show respect to the people kind enough to let us set up a dojo. The dojo is connected to prayer rooms and as with Muslim tradition, foot wear is not permitted in the prayer rooms and certain areas. When mats are down on the floor, The IKK will not permit use of footwear on the matted areas.
This dojo is open to everybody who wishes to train under the flag of the IKK (Irish Karate Kyokushinkai).
Sensei Jon has set up a facebook account for the dojo and will be updated accordingly.
