Tonight I ran Cobra Karate’s first remote, online training! Thanks ever so much to all those that attended – I felt re-energised afterwards. I’ve now got the hang of the dual screen set up, and Admin Daz has managed to to connect the laptop to the big telly, so I can watch you all on the big screen, which is very cool!

I am very much missing our in-person classes, as I imagine you are too. However, until the COVID-19 lockdown is lifted, remote classes will have to be our new normal.

I will be running classes on a Tuesday and Thursday. Once again, we are teaming up with Black Scorpion Karate who are based in Warrington and Wigan areas. Most of you will also know Sensei Paul Selby from Black Scorpion Karate. He is also running online classes on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday morning.

Students from Cobra Karate and Black Scorpion Karate are welcome to train at any of these classes. Both clubs are accredited members of CMAA.

We have a weekly pass and for about the same price as one normal class, you can attend as many classes as you like in the week per household, from Monday to Friday. There’s also an exemption for anybody whose income has been affected by the COVID-19 restrictions and lockdown. All existing students are welcome and encouraged to join our remote classes, regardless of their current circumstances.

There is a booking calendar for each class, depending on whether it is Sensei Tracey or Sensei Paul running the class. Simply click on the the relevant calendar and book the classes that you want. I need existing students to book onto classes so that I can be sure that those that have access to our online training sessions are genuine students of either Cobra Karate or Black Scorpion Karate.

Online classes run on the Zoom platform, so please ensure that you have signed up to Zoom (it’s free) and have downloaded the app to your preferred device. You can also run Zoom directly from your laptop.

If you have any questions, please send me an email or a text, or message me via our Telegram group.
