FAQs

Do I need to bring anything?

Yes, your child should come with a clean working wifi-enabled laptop. Also bring a charger for your laptop so that it keeps runing.
Clean Laptop = All updates have been downloaded and virus software is up to date.

Are there other locations?

There are two Dojo's running, Noosa and University of the Sunshine Coast. Maleny is closed during winter, but will be open again for the last term. We are working on opening more Dojos across the Sunshine Coast shortly and will announce on our Website, Facebook and Twitter.
