This year's Swedish National Championships will be held in Gamlishallen in Uppsala Saturday 9 November. However, the event is hosted by the Seikyukai dojo from Stockholm.
Unfortunately, the start of the autumn term has to be moved to Wednesday 11 September because they have not yet finished laying the new floor in the hall.
In the meantime, use the opportunity to vist our outdoor dojo in Ekebyboda.
