Wales Firebreak Lockdown


Following on from the Welsh Government announcements today, the Welsh Bushi-Kai will be temporarily closing ALL clubs from 6 pm Friday 23rd October.

Clubs will start to reopen again on Monday 9th November in relation to WG guidelines. Reopening dates and times for each club will be promoted in due course.

Apologies to be the bearer of bad news. The WBK is committed to following all WG guidelines and ensuring the safety of our members, instructors, families and friends are at the forefront in everything we do.

As always, thank you for your continued support and understanding during these unusual times. Any queries or questions you may have, please feel free to contact me directly.


COVID-19 - Positive Case

COVID-19 - Positive Case
A pupil in Ysgol Cwm Brombil Year 5 has tested positive for COVID-19. The infected pupil is a member of our MBK Club. As a club, we have been adhering to our procedures and ensuring we are learning and practising karate in the safest environment. Therefore, there have been no contacts identified to the infected member.

However, we must adhere to the school's procedures and the following will take place:

  • All MBK students who are YCB Year 5 pupils MUST self isolate for two weeks.

  • These members MUST NOT attempt to attend any training sessions in any club within the WBK.

  • Isolating members can return to training from Wednesday 21st October. 

  • All MBK students MUST continue to adhere to all WBK COVID-19 Procedures.


If anyone has any concerns or queries, as always, please feel free to contact me directly.

Thank you once again for your continued support and we looked forward to welcoming our isolating members back on two weeks time.


Welsh Bushi-Kai are back!

Training to resume indoors from Monday 24th August.

Returning to our dojo's will be different and we must adapt to our new ways of training.

Policies, procedures and club-specific information can be found via our COVID-19 Info tab or Facebook Group.

WBK Statement: Coronavirus

In light of recent events and issues regarding Coronavirus, we are constantly assessing the situation and monitoring the guidance from Public Health Wales.

We have made the tough decision to close all clubs for the foreseeable future. The WBK is one of if not the best Association around for its standards of karate, discipline, resilience and toughness but also for it’s duty of care and responsibility. Hence why this decision came easy as ultimately the safety and well-being of our WBK community come first.

To all of our dedicated karateka, keep practising and maintain a good level of fitness. All we can ask is for you to do your best in this difficult time. We want to avoid our returns being obstacles.

Thank you for your continued understanding and support. Stay healthy and safe in this uncertain time.

Kyu Grading - March 2020


Congratulations to all of our students from across the Welsh Bushi-Kai for successfully passing their Kyu Grades this morning. Fantastic to see such a busy grading at our new venue. Well done to our Brown and Black belts on completing the Sanbon Gumite course.


A special mention to those students who jumped their first grading, White Belt to Yellow Belt (8th Kyu) - superb achievement!

Thank you to our instructors and assistant instructors for your help once again. Thank you to all the families and friends for your support!
