RETURN TO CLUB VENUES


On behalf of all instructors, we are looking forward to welcoming you back when we return to training at club venues.
Please be assured that we are actively working with our venues so that we are prepared to return in September.  We have performed a comprehensive assessment of risk at each venue including planned adaptations to ensure our Karate classes can resume safely and within venue policy. One important aspect will be the need to exercise appropriate social distancing before, during and after each class. In line with most venue restrictions, we are requesting that children are dropped off with their instructor and parents remain outside the venue during the class as no spectators will be permitted.

A list of club return dates is included below.

About


The Kamaete Schools of Traditional Shotokan Karate (KSTSK) is headed by chief instructors Rakesh Patel 6th Dan and Peter Khera 6th Dan.

Rakesh and Peter started their Karate journey as young children in the mid 1980's. They trained at their local club in Letchworth and regularly visited other clubs in the association. They graded to black belt in their teens. Peter established his first club in Hertford (1994) and Rakesh in Hatfield (1996).

Through their hard work, passion and diligence, together Rakesh and Peter founded KSTSK in 2005. KSTSK has grown organically and now comprises a great team of fully qualified instructors and black belts across fifteen clubs providing the highest standard of Karate tuition for all students; children, teens and adults alike.
