IMASA Instructors additional extention for online Distance Learning, whilst on Lockdown.
In relation to online teaching, Insurers have confirmed that they will provide cover, but note that all third parties will be taking part at their own risk.
They have advised that all Clubs and Instructors update their risk assessments to reflect training from home, and take all measures to ensure that there is adequate, safe space for the training and activities that will be carried out.
Any member/student taking part in the online classes should also carry out a risk assessment to ensure that there is adequate space for the activities being carried out.
Junior members should be supervised by an over 18yrs family member.
Best wishes, Paul - Stay Safe

COVID-19 has drastically changed the way we live our lives so we wanted to let you know what we are doing to support both our employees and members.
Like all Associations, we have had to change the way we work for a while in order to protect the health and well-being of our employees and Members.
All usual channels of communication remain in place so please don't hesitate to reach out as you normally would/should you require any assistance.
Due to the Governments closures of Leisure Centre's/Gym's and recommendations of Social distancing, we will not want to be encouraging social gatherings - For the safety of your and student families please take the Governments advise and stay at home and Isolate, Isolate and Isolate.
It seems pointless to purchase Indemnities or Instructor Cover as this would appear to be invalid, due to the advise and guidance given.
We would appreciate, were possible that club renewals and Instructor registrations proceed as normal, every little helps to keep IMASA on a stable financial platform - We will understand if not possible due to your own financial difficulties or worries.
Stay safe through these difficult times - We look forward to seeing you once this virus is beaten and things get back to normal, or what-ever normal will look like after this Pandemic.

Well Done to Roaring Tiger Karate Club
Just some news I thought you might like to know - We've been busy shooting a music video with the Karate club for a local rock band with Director Brooklyn Beckham ( David and Victoria Beckhams Son.)
The music video has just been released yesterday so i thought you might like to have a look.
There is a small clip in the middle of the video where IMASA gets a mention !
The band is called JAWS and the song is called 'End of the World'
It's currently had over 20,000 views and Brooklyn has put a trailer for it on his Instagram page which has reached over 160,000 views at the moment.
Here's some photos from the filming day to have a look at as well.
They released the song through Vogue magazine and there's an article here : https://www.vogue.co.uk/article/brooklyn-beckham-music-video-2019
I think it's been in every paper and news site including The Sun, Daily Star, Evening Standard, the Metro , NME, MTV News, and yesterday morning I had to go onto the BBC WM Radio breakfast show to do an interview about it.
Hopefully some good coverage for Karate.

Gary received a message from Master Chris Hemstock this morning, the committee of Martial Arts of Great Britain and Team GB sent this to thank IMASA; here are his words, we had a great day and night with David Lambert all on BKA Rhyl on facebook!
Oh what a night - Truely Humbled and Honoured to have received another award this year. This time from Bethan Owen, her Father Garry Julie Owen, the BKA and IMASA.
When I see the amazing work you guys do up here in North Wales, it warms my heart and soul.
You guys do so much with so little it truly is a massive achievement. You're the ones that deserve the awards, the recognition and the applause. Thank you for your kind words and your hospitality. I salute you both xx
