Q: Am I required to turn on my camera?

A: We would prefer if you do. 1) We want to see you and get to know you. 2) We want to see you - unfortunately online meetings have been interrupted through illegal interrupters and people who just don't have anything positive to contribute. Anonymity will help encourace such behavior and that is why we want to see all participants. Once you have identified yourself and we were able to confirm your through the registration, you are more than welcome to turn off your camera again. 


Q: Will I need a microphone?

A: You will NOT need a microphone. We will mute all participants to reduce distractions, as well as noise level.

A: Our Zoom classes will work with any smartphone that can pull up Zoom.us. The Classes will play on smart phones, Ipads, tablets or even TV if you have connected your computer.

Q: What ​internet connection will I need?

A: ​Zoom will work with as low as 3G - however, we strongly recommend that you join our classes with a strong Wi-Fi connected (4G), or even a wired network. The faster your internet the smoother all streaming will work. 


Q: I do live outside the USA, can I still join?

A: Absolutely - our Gasshuku is open for all styles, all countries, all ages and all levels. Just come and train. 

ATTENTION: All our classes are what is called Pacific Standard Time. We are in the same time zone as Los Angeles or San Francisco. Please consider this and plan accordingly. This might mean that some classes are very early for you, while other classes might be very late for you. This might be part of your unique Gasshuku experience.


Q: Can I train out of my living room?

A: Absolutely - Most of our instructors will teach from home, their garage or yard. You will be able to follow the classes wherever you might be.  


Q: Do I need to wear a gi?

A: We would prefer that all participants do wear their Karate uniform and belt - it is after all a Karate class and we want to maintain our tradition as much as possible, especially in this time were everything is out of the norm. Please wear a gi.

A: Yes! Our current Zoom account allows only 300 participants. If we have a high demand we will have to make changes to fit the need and the earlier we know all details the better. Please register right away!!!
