Keeping Calm and Carrying On

Gichin Funakoshi the founder of Shotokan, penned 20 precepts as guiding principles for future karate generations to follow and #9 Karate is a life long pursuit drives us on to find ways to continue the journey in difficult circumstances.

Just like the Okinawans who trained in secret in the early formation days of karate, Worcester Shotokan Karate Club refuses to be beaten by the current and very important lockdown engulfing the UK and the rest of the world.

The club opened a virtual dojo on March 26th that matures with each passing session as Cameron Sensei develops training routines that suit small spaces and can be easily conveyed by on-line video.

When lockdown lifts the club will enjoy a seamless transition back to our real dojos.
