Kid free for Valentines day?

Here at The Shudokan Black Belt Academy we realise how difficult it can be to find childcare on Valentines Day. How difficult it can be to spend some quality time with that special person. That is why we have come up with a great idea. We will watch your children so you can go for a meal or just simply have some time alone. We will entertain your children from 18.30- 20.00 on friday 14th February. Bring them along for fun and games and a guarenteed fantastic evening! There is no charge for this. We do however advise that you provide your child with a drink. An hour and a half of what we have planned and a drink is essential! All of our instructors are CRB checked. Any questions please do not hesitate to call us on 0115 985 6504
