Karate-Do / Kushido / Tai Chi Quan

So-Pa is a Martial Arts School located in Frome, Somerset.


With regrets, I have to inform you again we can not start and have to put an open end to this now.

So as from now I would like to ask if any one knows of a hall we could heir?

So please come to my Face Book page or see dmy Website postings, to get the latest news. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks Shihan Thomas
