Hi all,

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.

Club Karate Music Video

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.

When I see the amazing work you guys do up here in North Wales, it warms my heart and soul.
