Half Term Hangout

Zen-Shin held it’s first ‘Half Term Hangout’ this week at the Zen-Shin Studios. It was a program offered to students and the public for 2 days of fun and creativity. Take a look at the photos to see what we got up to. Click on the photos below to enlarge.

We have had some amazing feedback from the kids and their parents and have been asked to have another ‘half term hangout’ over the christmas half term!  So pencil Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th December into your diaries.

Here is some parental feedback: “I wish it was on the full week because my son absolutely loved it. Thanks again to Fi, Abian and Jumoke for giving him such a great time, money well spent. And thanks Kyoshi for allowing them to paint the wall it’s a testimony to how Zen-Shin is more than just a martial arts club, but has the emotional welfare of its children at heart”

Olympic News

5 new sports have been added by the International Olympic Committee for the Olympics in Tokyo 2020, including baseball, skateboarding, surfing, climbing and KARATE!

This is great news for karatekas and people who have never been exposed to the art of karate. What a great time for it to be introduced in the perfect location Tokyo, Japan, the country where karate was established.

It’s been a long time coming, and I’m so excited that we are going to be able to watch the best karatekas from around the world perform from our TV screens!

Judo was brought into the Olympics in 1964 when Japan hosted the Olympics last time and Judo seems very popular in Japan now, and has over shone karate. No doubt karate will start a new adventure throughout the world after it is televised in 2020. Let’s hope it inspires others to take up the art.

It would be great if our Zen-Shin students could be involved. It will take a lot of hard work and time.
