An exclusive one on one private lesson with Sensei Bert Stewart is an excellent opportunity to get tailored feedback and instruction, overcoming some of the temptations to slack you might find with other remote training methods. Using your own tablet or device, this session will allow you to virtually join Sensei Bert in either his home dojo or our Dalgety Bay dojo for a solid hour of JKA Karate training.
Sessions are available at the following times:
- Wednesday Evening 6.30pm to 9pm
- Thursday 9.30am to 2.30pm
- Thursday 6.30pm to 9pm
- Friday 9.30am to 9pm
- Saturday 9.30am t0 12.30pm
How to join:
We can use either Zoom or Skype to connect with you. Just let us know your preference when booking, using the Notes field on your booking form.
It would be advisable to choose a location in your home with enough space to move for three or four strides freely, and a way of placing your tablet, laptop or device so you can both see the screen and your camera/ webcam can see you. You should make sure it's safe for you to train - remove rugs for instance in the area you're using so there's no tripping hazard and try and ensure no-one else is in the room.
A tripod would be perfect, or sometimes your phone or tablet has a case which allows you to position it standing up so you can see it, and its camera lens can see you. Generally speaking, it is best to be about six to eight feet from your laptop, phone, tablet or Smart TV (if you have a Smart TV with its own camera and microphone. For private lessons, please keep your microphone on (unmuted) so you can ask questions and respond to questions from Sensei Bert.
If you're using a tablet or a phone, we've found it's best for us to portrait mode, and this will allow Sensei to see your movements, including your feet.
