JOIN US FOR KANGEIKO 2022!

Join us for Kangeiko 2022!
Very soon we'll be holding our third annual kangeiko! Kangeiko means "cold training". It is a week-long training programme to start the year with high levels of effort, spirit and commitment to the dojo. It will also help you to build resilience and mental toughness.
After a COVID-enforced online kangeiko last year, we're back to Backwell Parish Hall for this year's week-long event! So what's in store this year?
This year's kangeiko runs from
Monday 31st January to Saturday 5th February
and takes place early in the morning, before work or school.
Each morning we take a short run, starting and finishing at the dojo before getting started with training. From Monday to Friday training runs from 6.15am to 7.35am. Saturday's training is the final day and starts a little later (7-8.15am). At the end of the Saturday session, everyone that completes an entire week of Kangeiko will be presented with a certificate and we’ll break for a celebration of the week with breakfast baps, teas and coffees that are free for everyone that takes part.
Kangeiko is a wonderful challenge to bring us together. Last year, 22 picked up the challenge of Kangeiko. Now we're back face-to-face, seize the opportunity and join us for Kangeiko 2022!
WHO IS THIS OPEN TO?
Members and guests.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE RUN?
It's one that we're confident you will be fine with, so don't let this put you off! Bring trainers for the run. If it's heavy rain, consider a change of clothes. Otherwise you'll just run in your dogi and a jacket/jumper.
WHERE IS IT?
Backwell Parish Hall, Station Road, Backwell, Bristol, BS48 3QW.
WHEN IS IT?
Monday 31st January to Saturday 5th February.
Monday to Friday training is 6.15am-7.35am. Saturday training is 7.00am-8.15am.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
The whole week is
free to all members on a Silver, Gold or Platinum Monthly Membership
. It's just £12 for the whole week for those on Bronze Membership or 'pay as you go'. That's for eight hours of training!
For those on a Monthly Membership, Kangeiko sessions do not count against your weekly session count. Remember that you should consider Kangeiko as in addition to your normal training, not as a replacement.
