We are back!!

We have now completed a full week of our 10 classes and it has been great to be back training together in the dojang. Everyone has come back with enthusiasm, trained hard and followed the COVID-19 guidelines brilliantly. It has been a pleasure to see just how well even our youngest members have coped with the new guidelines and shown they can train hard and still keep to social distancing and safety procedures  

We have however, had a small number of issues with parents not social distancing so please can we remind everyone to follow the guidelines when dropping off and collecting juniors. As we have all seen from the news over the last few days we are still running on the edge so let's ensure we keep to the guidelines and help beat COVID-19.

Almost all classes are now full, but we do have some spaces in the Friday KickStar Class and the Sunday Family Class. We are now running waiting lists for several classes, so we will monitor attendance carefully and add places as soon as we can. As we have people waiting for classes please do let us know if you are going to be away or won't need your place in a particular class so we can reuse it. We will run with the current schedule for a couple of weeks and then review with the aim to add extra capacity where we can. Please also remember we are continuing for now to stream all classes on Zoom, so extra training available online!

To ensure that we can manage the social distancing, we will have to assign classes. Please can I ask those who haven't already done so to send details of their class preferences to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by this Friday. We will do our best to assign classes based on your preferences but we will have strict limits and it therefore may be necessary to ask some to take alternative classes for now. I appreciate this isn't ideal but we will only be able to sign up 16 attendees to any class at the moment.

Thank you once again for your support for Bluewave. I hope to see many of you/your children back training in the dojang!

Return to Physical Training

Following the recent government announcement, we are delighted to be able to let everyone know that we will be restarting physical classes from Sunday 26th July.  Once we reopen, we will have a new schedule for classes and all classess will be available as both a physical class and streamed on Zoom.

We will initially have to operate strict guidelines, in line with those issued by the government and British Taekwondo, to ensure we can provide a COVID-19 safe environment for all our members and instructors.  This does mean that there will be some significant changes to how we work.  These guidelines are documented In our Return to Training Framework/COVID-19 Implementation Plan.

We will also be running a club meeting over Zoom to discuss these changes and answer any questions you might have.  The meeting will be on Sunday 19th July at 6.45pm, the link for the meeting is

Thank you for all your support during the lockdown period and we look forward to being able to start the transition to back to more normal training from the 26th July.
