Special training course with Sensei Matt Price!
Special training course with Sensei Matt Price!
We're delighted to see that this week's move to online training has been so well received. We've seen you log on to Zoom in your droves and the classes have had an excellent buzz around them!

As a big thank you, we have arranged a special event for you. Sensei Matt Price (6th Dan) will now be teaching an extended Sunday class, from 10-11.30am, through Zoom! 

For those on a monthly membership, this is INCLUDED in your membership. For guests or those on pay-as-you-go, it is THE SAME PRICE as normal - just £5.  Payment should be made straight to the club's bank account: 30-62-96, 70401968.

For those that don't know Matt Sensei, he is a former ESKA European Kumite Champion and KUGB National Grand Champion - that means winning both kata and kumite in the same year!  He is the current JKS England squad coach and a very good friend to the club. Sensei Price last taught us at our 40th anniversary 'Super Saturday' course in 2018 but more recently made a quick cameo in our Zoom training session on Thursday!  

Sensei is a full-time instructor and so we are delighted to be able to make sure his diary stays busy while other seminars across the UK and Europe are cancelled. 

We will be opening up the event to other karateka across the internet but this one is really from us to you - our members who train day in, day out. Thanks again for embracing this new way of training and we look forward to seeing many of you again and some of your for the first time over the coming days.


We have 100 spaces on this online course and will save a minimum of 50 for our members.

Bristol Karate Academy members: Please complete this quick survey to let us know you're coming.  If you don't book on and we still have plenty of spaces on Saturday night we'll late you know through our private members-only Facebook group.

Guests/non-members: Please complete this short survey to register. Once you've done this and also transferred your training fee of £5 to the club's bank account (30-62-96, 70401968) we will email you the meeting code to join.  Only those non-members that have paid by 9am on Sunday will be able to join. Please remember to register for Zoom beforehand! It's your responsibility to make sure that you have the technology to join.


If this is all new for you, don't worry!  Take a look at our Q&As to find out how to get set up and ready to go!
