Tai Chi

No Truth in the Rumour

Pagoda in mist

Hi Folks. There seems to be a rumour going around that the Buntingford Karate Club is to close down in about 18 months time. I would just like to say that I have no plans at all for closing down the Club and, if I ever do, the Club members will be the first to know about it personally and […]
