HOW ARE YOU ALL DOING?

Hi all. Hasn’t this lockdown been weird? Do you find it so? I have never had this long away from karate training since I first started in 1971 when I left school at 16. Although I have been continuing with it at home I really don’t like it, it’s simply not the same as training at our dojo. Hopefully though […]

VIRUS!!

Hi Folks. Despite the Government advice that all places where people meet should be closed Sue and I have decided to try and keep the Buntingford Karate Club running for as long as possible. It’s bad enough this virus happening without taking all the fun out of life! However, this will depend on member’s attendance, as we need a minimum […]

VIRUS – a Buntingford Karate Club Guide

Hi Folks. So, here we are with a Corona Virus outbreak which (in my opinion) has been blown out of all proportion. If we look at the figures for “ordinary” influenza (the flu) which circulates the world yearly, going through seasonal cycles, then globally between 290,000 and 650,000 people die each year due to Flu. The Corona virus has come […]

Goodbye Harry (for now).

Hi Folks. Last week Harry came along to what might be his last training session with us for quite a while. Harry joined the Buntingford Karate Club as a white belt when he was still at school (and when he was considerably shorter than what he is now) and it was my pleasure to eventually grade him to Black Belt.

A Catch-up at the Club

Hi All. It’s been a while since I last wrote for the Buntingford Karate Club, and in that time the format for how I write my blogs has been up-dated/altered. I had to ask Rick (our resident computer wizard) how to use the new format…so here’s hoping! Four things have happened in the Buntingford Karate Club: Harrison passed to Orange […]

BUNTINGFORD CARNIVAL 2018

Yes Folks, it happened again! Once again the Buntingford Karate Club was invited to give a display at this very prestigious carnival, one of the biggest in Hertfordshire (and possibly England). With some 10,000 visitors on the streets we gave our display to a big crowd, and I am pleased to say it was warmly received. We do not have […]

Zen and Karate

I have just added a new page called “Zen”. I have done this because last night one of my students in the Buntingford Karate Club was not performing up to his usual high standard. When I asked him what was wrong he explained to me the problem. I told him to leave the dojo, dump his mental baggage, and then […]
