Junna Tsukii to hold free online karate session



Tiebreaker Times Junna Tsukii to hold free online karate session Karate News  Junna Tsukii Coronavirus Pandemic

Tokyo Olympics hopeful Junna Tsukii will share some tips and tricks on Mother’s Day.

Currently in Japan, the 28-year-old Filipino-Japanese karateka will hold an online seminar for kids on Sunday, May 10 at 9:00 AM (Manila time). It will be hosted on her Instagram account @junnatsukiiv888.

“Let’s enjoy together,” said the 2018 Asian Games bronze medalist about the session that will most likely last for 45 minutes.

Just like the majority of athletes, Tsukii is training in isolation due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Luckily for her, her father owns a gym that she has been using to train.

“Due to the effects of the coronavirus, I can’t use the public facilities and I can’t meet other people, so I stay in my father’s Gym on every weekend and I’m doing self-training in here,” shared Tsukii, who won gold in the 50-kilogram division of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games karate tournament.

“I have two training programs, physical training, and sprinting in the morning and karate practice in the afternoon.”

Tsukii is just a few tournament points away from qualifying for the Olympics.
