Latest News

Welcome back!! Indoor classes return from Monday 12th April for all students U18.

From Monday 12th April in line with government guidelines, classes return indoors for all students aged 17 years and under.

All indoor classes have returned with the exception of one venue in Lowton that due to ongoing building work cannot reopen until mid May - this class will continue to be taught outside until we can return indoors.

To keep everyone safe and feeling secure in all our classes, our Instructor team have all passed their Covid Safe Awareness course for Martial Arts. Temperature checks and hand sanitisers are required in all classes at the entrance point.

New starters are now being taken in all classes across the club. If you have contacted us already and in the rarity we haven't got back to you yet, huge apologies we've been really busy with new enquiries, so please contact us again and we'll get you booked onto a class straight away. 

All current students who wish to book on to classes please also contact us to be given your class group details.

All the clubs contact details are available to view via the 'contacts us' page.  

 

 

 

 

Outside classes available for adults and children from Monday April 12th.

Under government guidelines we can only currently teach any students over the age of 18 years outdoors, this is only a short term measure and with the nights getting lighter and the weather improving it's a fun and enjoyable experience and really helps get students back into their training mode.

Our outside classes will run each week to cater for students of all ages in preparation for hopefully a full return to indoor training for everyone from Monday 17th May onwards. 

Outside classes will be held in 

Lowton on Tuesday evenings from 6.30pm onwards

Poulton-le-Fylde on Thursday evenings from 6.30pm onwards.

Please contact the club for more info and training locations. 

 

Classes Now Open and We're Back Training!!

 

After our spell of closure due to Covid 19, as many of you know we resumed some moderate training with outdoor sessions, so we are really pleased to announce we are now open and training indoors on a selected number of days and locations with strict Covid Safe restrictions in place.

We have had fantastic support during this last six months both with our online classes and then the outside training, with a great many of our students training throughout. Our club competition proved a huge success and brought out the real competitive streak in many of you!! Our zoom 'pub quiz' was a great evening, and brought so many laughs - some of the team names were hilarious! This is a fantastic effort all round in what was a very difficult time for us all, but we pulled together and it shows the real team camaraderie within the club that we have. 

To keep everyone safe and feeling secure in all our classes, our Instructor team have all passed their Covid Safe Awareness course for Martial Arts. Temperature checks and hand sanitisers are required in all classes at the entrance point. Student records are strictly adhered to for Track and Trace purposes and confidentially and securely stored for a minimum of three weeks. For ease and clarity especially with our younger students, all other Covid Safe measures in place will be explained in classes. 

All locations and class times are available on request.

Please keep up to date with all the latest info via our closed facebook club page or contact Sensei Simon or Sensei Yvonne for more information on class times and locations. 

 

 

Coronovirus Outbreak - All Musuko Karate Academy Classes Closed Until Further Notice.

IMPORTANT CLUB ANNOUNCEMENT

With the Government’s advice changing significantly over the last 24 hours, all class training sessions will stop with immediate effect as of 11am - 17/03/2020. 

This decision has been a tough one to make and Sensei Simon, along with the Assistant Chief Instructor and the Club Manager have given this much thought but firmly believe it’s the right one to take.

Evening classes, gradings and events are all cancelled until further notice.

As we stated on Sunday in the event that the club closed, the decision to still award those at the pre-assessment with their new grades will stand and last Sunday's assessment is now officially classed as the grading. All who where there to attempt new Kyu grades will be honoured in this unprecedented situation, and your belts and certificates will be awarded to you when the club reopens. .

Our number one priority is the health and well being of all Musuko Karate Academy members and their families and we encourage you all to follow guidelines as set out by the Government in order to keep yourselves and your loved ones safe during these challenging times.

Please try to remain healthy and positive during this difficult period, and take this opportunity to practice at home were possible working on technique, fitness, speed and power. 

Online tuition will be available via our facebook platfrom from early next week - with an option to upload videos of student's progress for feedback from Sensei Simon and our brilliant team of Instructors and Sempai's. . 

More information regarding Coronavirus and how it affects us a club will be posted as we receive it within our closed facebook group, and we will endeavour to keep you all updated as much as possible.

Huge Congratulations to not one, not two, but three!  Musuko Karate Academy students -
