General Information

Dojos are for children between 8 and 18 year olds, with most being between 10 and 15.   You can find out what is on offer each week from the booking details and look at the descriptions of what has been on offer in past weeks..  Some dojos give priority tickets to parents who mentor in the dojo or whose children do.

Tickets will show as ‘no tickets available’ before any have been issued and ‘sold out’ after all have gone.

To ask questions, to keep up to date on what is going on in these dojos, special events, advance warning of changes to dates and so on, subscribe to the e-mail in the CodrDojo-Dublin Google Group
