Covid-19 put a stop to regular training in the hall, so Zoom training continues. We have had some inspiring sessions directly with Japan and the Hombu dojo instructors. Weekly sessions on Wednesday and Thursday are regularly attended and the instruction, limited to the available space, is in itself interesting, bringing the focus into the close-quarter realm of self-defence drills. Kata practice is performed as ‘box’ kata using the arms as usual with sliding foot movements to replicate stepping albeit on the spot! Hopefully with the easing of lock-down we will be able to get back in the dojo soon.
