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
