Coronavirus Update:

Hi All,
In the interests of public safety and according to the governments guidelines around CORVID-19 we are closing down classes until (at least) the 1st of April, after this date we will have to see what the guidelines are and take it from there. It’s not a decision I have enjoyed making but my primary duty as a coach is to keep you all safe and healthy.
Stay safe and look after each other, hope to see you all on the mats soon!

Head Coach Pendle Martial Arts Academy.

Club Statement:

It is with the heaviest heart that we regret to inform members that yesterday (07/03) Sensei Derek Whittaker sadly passed away. Derek has been a stalwart feature at The Academy for the last 15 years and has been involved in Martial Arts for over 60 years. We are truly honoured to have shared the mats with this true gentleman. He shared his wealth of knowledge, experience and zest for life with everyone he came into contact with and was the most amazing teacher and mentor. No words will come close to expressing how much we will all miss this truly amazing man.
