All of our member clubs in England can now open with certain restrictions and our clubs in Scotland will hopefully be opening soon. Our members in Guernsey are now able to train with no restriction. Please regularly refer to the FEKO website homepage at www.feko.co.uk to see the latest FEKO advice and requirements on training.
With the easing of Coronavirus restrictions some clubs with be starting to open. This will vary from club to club. Please contact your instructor for the latest information regarding your club.
Here is the latest advice from FEKO:
On 9 July 2020, The Government approved the opening of indoor leisure facilities and gyms from Saturday 25 July 2020.
While this is very good news, it is not a carte blanche approval for all centres to open without significant COVID secure procedures in place. FEKO members offer many different martial arts and each will need their own risk assessments and procedures. Similarly there will be differences between those centres that operate in their own premises compared to those where the provision exists in schools or in community centres etc.
It is imperative that we all follow the Government guidelines on COVID to be found at https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
Meanwhile, if you have not already done so, you should begin the process of carrying out risk assessments for your own provision
It is with great sadness that we have to report that Sensei Nanbu, The founder of Sankukai Karate and Nanbudo has sadly died. Our thoughts are with his family and close friends.
As our members will not be able to train at their clubs until circumstances change for the better we would encourage you to train at home. There are videos on our website that can help you. If you require some advice on any aspect of you Sankukai training, contact your instructor, who will be happy to help. This is an opportunity to improve your kata and basic techniques over the coming weeks!
Stay safe and follow the NHS advice and government requirements.
Good afternoon everyone
May I just remind you that in line with Government advice, under no circumstances should training take place at any FEKO Association or Club premises. Obviously the advice regarding social distancing applies and this advice can be found at:
