Jacksons Lane Shotokan Karate Club
The online karate classes started last Tuesday 26th May and have been a success. they will continue until further notice.
Soon be starting online classes, emails have gone out and the Facebook page has been updated.
Due to the coronavirus the Hazel Grove High School gym has been closed until further notice. keep watching this space or the news page on the club website.
We knew that it was coming. Hopefully the club will be back up and running when this emergency is over.
However this is a fantastic opportunity to practice your syllabus and don't forget that kata was invented to allow people to practice techniques while on their own.
During the Japanese occupation of Okinawa kata became an extremely important way of practicing karate techniques in secret while rules were in place that stopped the Okinawans from practicing martial arts. Now with self and social isolation it's the perfect time to practice your karate and work on any parts that you need to.
You can find your syllabus on this page. Grades/Belts syllabus.
It may be an idea to do your practice at the same time as the club training times.
Remember karate is like boiling water, it cools down when you take the energy away.
