The BSKA have received the following letter from Jim Reece, the secretary of FEKO.
Jim Reece, FEKO Hon Secretary
Good evening everyone
On 20 March 2020, the Prime Minister made it quite clear that indoor leisure and sports facilities, including gyms were to close that evening.
We interpret that to include martial arts provision and would advise all our member associations to heed that statement. We are still hearing of martial arts schools which are staying open and that can only be detrimental to containing this, extremely infectious and sometimes fatal disease.
FEKO Hon Secretary
On behalf of the FEKO Executive
Following the BSKA AGM here is the current elected committee. The website club list and Who’s Who pages will be updated in the near future.
The kata course due to take place in Edinburgh on 29th March has been postponed due to the current coronavirus situation. There is a possible, provisional new date of 31st May although this of course depends on the situation at the time. More information will be posted closer to the date.
With current government guidelines regarding the Covid-19 virus and most sports governing bodies choosing to suspend training and competitions, please check with instructors and clubs to clarify if training sessions are still going ahead in order to avoid unnecessary travelling.
With regards to this years BSKA events, we will make announcements closer to the dates after considering the current situation and Government and NHS advice at the time.
There will be an all-grade course on March 8th at The Samurai Centre, Kidderminster, 10.00am to 12.00pm. This will be followed by the BSKA A.G.M. starting at 12.30pm. All committee posts are up for re-election at this meeting. All BSKA members are welcome to attend.
