Timetable Revision

We have made a few small changes to the timetable which will come into effect from the beginning of next month. The changes concern the adult 8-9pm classes, all other classes are unaffected.
Hopefully this new setup will make it easier for more people to get into more classes, and should certainly make the sparring class a lot busier (don't start getting lazy now peeps).
Check the new timetable here.
And remember, the reshuffle wont happen until next week, this week it's the usual (mon-advanced, tues-sparring, wed-beginners, thurs-advanced, fri-beginners).
