We now have a date to work towards in terms of getting our dojos back open for you to train in. 14 September is the date the Scottish Government gave on 30 July for getting gyms re-opened. We think gyms are a good match for dojos and so that's what we look out for when listening to the briefings.
Meanwhile we hope you're managing to get motivated and training on your own or within your family groups. Remember there is a wealth of information available to you in your membership folders or in the JKA Karate East Lothian website. Searching "JKA" on Youtube will bring up some of the younger instructors from the honbu dojo in Tokyo as well some of the older masters. As karate is refined all the time, just be careful with your search queries and be aware that there are many styles of karate out there! This is especially important if you are looking for katas - ensure you find an up to date version otherwise you will struggle a wee bit when you get back into the dojo - and you'll stand out for the wrong reasons! Keep strong, keep training ...Of course we are still providing training sessions online, there's still time to join the Zoom classes if you want to try and take the rust of the last few weeks off!
