Dear TKI “Staying-At-Home” Member,

Firstly, I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.

As you know, we are all required to stay at home presently and therefore we are unable to attend our karate lessons at the dojo/schools.  However, whilst we are in this difficult situation, we can still undertake the training whilst at home, and at the same time, keep up our fitness levels which is also very good for our mental health.

Could I interest you in taking part in our online TKI Virtual Dojo training? I have designed the training to be done in a limited space, anywhere at home and for all grades/levels.



Junior Beginners
Belts: White; White/Orange; Orange; White/Red; Red

Junior Advanced
Belts: White/Yellow; Yellow; White/Green; Green; White/Purple; Purple

Junior & Senior Mixed Blue To Black Belts
Blue; Purple/White; Brown; Brown/White; Brown/Double White; Black

White; Orange; Red; Yellow; Green; Purple; Purple/White; Brown, Brown/White, Brown/Double White; Black

If you are interested in and willing to try the training, I will be using ZOOM, the videoconferencing app to do this.  Please see the following Instructions (on the last page of this letter) in relation to the ZOOM app,

I will send you an invitation to join the class by email with a code to join the class five minutes before beginning.

If siblings are training at the same time, they will need separate devices to join in so I can see them training.

Please keep background noise to the minimum or I will have to mute you.

It is your responsibility to be ready five minutes before the class starts.

No refunds will be given for missed classes.

Dress code is optional, but it would be nice to wear Karate clothing if possible.  If you do not own a Karate gi (suit), comfortable clothing such as tracksuit trousers and a T-shirt are ideal.

Lessons will be 40 minutes long at a cost of £5:00 a lesson.

Only five members at a time in each class at beginner level eight at advanced level please, as this is easiest to manage and ensures that I can see and give my full attention to each student.

To be paid after booking the class to confirm bookings.

Payment only by bank transfer

I will put the class times on the club’s WhatsApp page, and the first five people to reply will have a place in that class.

Training at the TKI Virtual Dojo

This will enable you to train safely in your home with expert instruction given by myself. Training sessions will be held on the days/ times as set out text below.

If you book on the days/times you normally train, children will see their friends on the screen of the ZOOM app to train with.  This will be also good for their confidence in the class and make it fun for them as well.


Please note

1.The parents are responsible to make sure the training area is a safe place to train (Risk assessment )

2.Parents are in charge of the children not the instructor as the instructor is not physically present

3.All children should be accompanied be a adult at all times in the lesson for child protection reasons

4.We well send the parent or adult member  a code by whats app to members booked in to each class five minutes before the lesson starts

This is for child protection, The code will change every new lesson

Please do not call during lesson times so that I am able to give the students their full lessons without me having to stop to take calls, thank you

Please be aware that this is a temporary measure in these difficult times and there may be teething issues. It will not, of course, be the same as training at the Dojo/schools, but hopefully will give the students the ability to gain some normality and retain their Karate fitness whilst we are all at home.

Equipment needed

We recommend you train using a laptop or desktop as the screen is larger and you will be able to see me more clearly. However, you can use your phone if needed, just be aware that the image of me will be restricted to the size of your screen. You also need to ensure that you have a working camera so I can see you, speakers so you can hear me and a microphone so you can ask any questions. You can make sure all of this works by installing ZOOM (the video-conferencing app that I will be using) beforehand and testing it to make sure it works.

Training at home and health and safety

Training in a safe environment is important. As you will be training at home, please ensure your training space is free from obstruction and sharp or fragile objects. You need enough space to carry out techniques without hurting yourself. I will modify the training to be carried out in confined spaces but it is your responsibility to ensure that you training space is safe.

The other thing to be aware of is the positioning of your camera. Try if possible to make sure that it shows your whole body so I can see your whole technique.

Sign up and download ZOOM (the videoconferencing app/program)

You will need to use the videoconferencing app called ZOOM to take part in the training. Can you all please download this to your laptop/desktop/ iPhone/ Android phone. Please ensure that the manufacturer is Zoom Video Communication Inc. Please see the hyperlink for this. Can you also please register yourself (it is free to do so).

Kind regards and I look forward to our virtual teaching!
