As such, online sessions will continue as per usual and we will release weekly announcements as before, hope to see you all there! We will send out more information about in-person trainings as soon as we get more.

If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, feel free to let me or any committee member know!

Latest MUKC news (13-06-2020)

Wednesday – 17 June – Kata discussion

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re doing fine! This coming Wednesday (17 June), the training session will be held as a group discussion about Kata instead of the lecture-type so far.

Please prepare the following points for discussion. Everyone will have to present their opinion:

  1. How interested are you in learning Kata and why?
  2. What you want to learn from Kata training sessions
  3. What you think about how it is currently run (online theory and then once a month as per usual in the Games Hall when we’re back to training)

(The links to join the session will be shared on Saturday/Sunday)

Thanks,
MUKC Committee
