Covid-19: Virtual training

With the government asking all gyms to close and the rules on social distancing our normal training regime has been turned upside down. However, karate training never stops and so Sensei Pete and the other instructors are working on virtual training resources for all WKA members.

More details to follow!


Wessex Karate Academy is following all government and Sport England advice for Coronavirus. As such all classes are on as usual unless otherwise notified.

“… given that being fit and healthy acts as a deterrent to most infections, it’s crucial that members of the public continue to lead active lives throughout this period, whether that’s using a local gym or walking or cycling, where it’s possible to do so…”

Sport England – Coronavirus: information for the sector

If the guidance changes we will post updates to this web site and our Facebook page.
