2020 came and we started on a high with all the students returning after Christmas. Training went on as normal till the middle of March, then the news talked about a pandemic and before you know it, were on lockdown. All the classes went on Zoom as Sensei Paul turned his dinning room into a Dojo to teach and Sensei Steven had to teach from his cold garage. In Summertime we did some outside classes. The start of September we got back into the dojo and we followed all the COVID guidelines from the Scottish government, Sports Scotland and the SKGB, with a booking system in place. The Zoom got set up in the dojo for students who couldn’t get booked in and wanted to still train from home. In December, we did a part one black belt grading in the Dojo where Sensei Tommy & Steven watch as they got put through their paces. Students- Simon Morley, Euan Campbell, Eilidh McCormack, Amy Gallacher, Cameron Smith, Rowan Campbell, Erin Marshall, Finlay Shaw, Gemma Osborne, Aiden Leigh and Kieran Duncan all passed.

Then the Dojo closed again as we went back into lockdown at the off December.
