The new Beginner's Induction starts on January 5th. If you know people who always wanted to start Karate - or martial arts in general - send them here: Beginner's Induction. Let's find amazing new people for our school! 
Martial Arts are much more than just physical education - reason enough to dive deeper into the background of Karate with this brand new format: Jorge Garibaldi, high ranked Karate instructor from Denmark, and our very own Heero Miketta will cover interesting topics in an online talkshow once in a month - occasionally with guests from the huge world of martial arts. 

You can follow the Karate Talks on YouTube live: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCZ3iKrK4nx9Mnu_6wJ_qlw
The channel is still empty, but we fill it with our first talk on Boxing Day at 4pm British Time. Our first topic: 
Modern Martial Arts - does Karate still have a place in the contemporary world of self defence and competition?
And yes, you can take part in the conversation and ask questions as well. We are looking forward to this a lot - just join in! 
As nice as the idea of a KarateTalk is - actual training is just as important. On January 9th we finally follow the long standing idea of our Mancunian instructor Arto Laaksonen and start our first international Webinar. Jorge and Heero will teach a combined seminar in Aarhus/Denmark and Manchester/UK, connected via videolink. 

This is just the first step to get into a combined online network for Martial Arts. A complete Missing Link compendium, with tutorials and background information, is the end game in this idea. Regular online trainings and international connections are the essence of this idea. We are on it. 

Join us on January 9th at 18.15 in Studio 25 for this first event. Expect hiccups and technical challenges, sweat and fun and a crazy mix of languages and concepts.
