March of the Scottish Samurai.
I wrote this tune during the Covid19 Lockdown in June 2020 for Aberdeen Karate master Ronnie Watt (9th Dan) who also founded the popular Scottish Samurai Awards.
During the lockdown, Ronnie’s karate classes were all suspended due to the Lockdown and because of the danger of the Corona virus spreading among karate students and their families. Ronnie at 73 was not going to take the virus disruption lying down. He quickly grasped modern technology and began using Zoom to provide free karate lessons to the karate students. For the last 3 months, he has held 3, 3-hour sessions every week online teaching young children, adults and old folks the karate training they would otherwise miss out on.
Ronnie is a true Samurai and has a warrior spirit. He has been thanked by the Consul General of Japan for his efforts during the Lockdown. Previously he has been recognised with an Order of the Rising Sun from the Japanese and an OBE from the Queen. Aberdeen University gave him an honorary degree in 2019.
