New classes in Cahersiveen
We have been running karate classes in Cahersiveen since November 2022. Classes initially took place in Foilmore but we have since moved to Asana Language School, in the centre of Cahersiveen. Classes are open to all from 12 years old. Most people are beginners and we are happy to accept new joiners at any time. If you are interested in joining our small group, please contact us.
Beginners class July 2022
In July, we held an adults beginners karate class which proved very successful and seemed to be enjoyed by all attendees. We run classes from time to time but beginners can start any time.
The following are a photographs of our karate classes and other karate events.
Seminar with Sensei Rault – June 2022
Karate classes during the Covid-19 pandemic
During 2020 and 2021, training has been severely restricted by the COVID-19 pandemic. During that time we have had to stop physical training, train outdoor, then back to training indoor with strict protocols and eventually stop physical training altogether. During the time we could not train indoors, we started online classes on Zoom. These take place twice a week and are free. They provided an oportunity for all to keep training and for some new people to give karate a go from the comfort of their own homes.
We also got the opportunity to train online with Sensei Rault in France and with the Hombu dojo in Okinawa.
Here are a few photos of these COVID days.
