Awase Dojo offers regular beginner-level classes where you can join and start your training at your convenience. We do not have a “beginning of the season” beginner’s course, so you can indeed join in the middle of the season. You are welcome to attend the training regardless of your fitness level.
Awase training dojo is located at Kaapelitehdas – Cable Factory, Building C, 4th floor.
- TRAINING SCHEDULES
Beginner-level classes are held on Mondays from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM and on Wednesdays from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.
Come to the dojo (as you are)
