Latest Covid Update

We're putting the finishing touches to a range of measues to allow us to re-open dojos safely.

Senseis Stewart, Osborne and Fraser have all completed the Sportscotland Covid 19 Officer training to ensure we're doing all we can to get ready for the return of face to face training.

We will need to make some changes. These will include:

  • new payment arrangements to end cash handling in favour of less frequent processes, such as asking you to take out a standing order for a block of lessons over a time period
  • new class times to permit cleaning to take place in between classes
  • working out the best mix of Zoom classes and face to face classes to help ensure you get a high quality teaching experience while keeping as safe as we can.

Assuming no sudden change, children under the age of 12 are able to start indoor contact sport from 31 August, with people of all ages able to take part in contact sport from 14 September. This is taken from the Scottish Government guidance and is endorsed by our governing body, the SKGB.

This is going to be a period of trial and error, informed by advice from the Scottish Government and the Scottish Karate Governing Body, so please bear with us as we find a way forward. Keep checking back on this website, or and if you use Facebook, we also post information there. If there's anything you're unsure of, please get in touch.
