Training at home, via facebook messenger group. There are 3 of us preparing for shodan grading so we are keeping up the training, Honbu has done a bunch of on-demand classes for the various grades that our dojo may access and use. Training at home only, with cardio (running, walking and cycling permitted on the streets, keeping ourselves in a 2m "bubble" at all times.

We did a test run with the blackbelts on Friday with Zoom. Great software, but very weird teaching to a camera and not being able to physically interact with people. Also challenging setting up the room and lighting.

Lighting was not something I had considered. Good to know. Our school is in the process of setting something up, so we'll see how we approach it.

Not being able to interact would have to be the toughest part about it! Sometimes the cues we give out in regards to techniques are aided by a little bit of personal contact (appropriate, of course), and missing this aspect will be a challenging aspect to a new way of teaching.

I'm actually training more now on a regular basis than I have in a long time, though it is solo training. I'm juggling working remotely, along with my wife, and caring for our toddler. I can't stray too far or too long away from the house, and there's too many people out & about taking walks & such, so my other exercise activities of running and bicycling are limited.
"Backyard Karate", as I call it, works well in this situation.
