At the end of August, I was invited to the newscast, the 12 / 13 of France 3 Champagne-Ardennes by the presenter Laurence Laborie. She wanted to interview 31 / 08 / 2015 about the concept of Karate-Blog.net ™ and Karate Online courses.
I was abroad and had to return the 30 / 08 late at night ... I knew that the awakening would be difficult but hey, I still accepted because for once we could talk about Karate on TV, I was not going to miss the opportunity.
In the morning of 31 / 08 / 2015, I go to Reims at the headquarters of France 3 Champagne Ardennes. (Laurence Laborie had offered to do the duplex interview from their studio in Chaumont, but I preferred a face-to-face live, even if it was further.)
Arrived to 11h30 as expected. I go to make-up, and 2 time 3 movements, I find myself on the set ... a technician explains to me in 2 words where this is my camera and presto, here we are live ... (It will be necessary for me to send them the ABC of the warm-up because it starts on the hats a wheel JT ... 🙂)
I had a lot of things to say about Karate, about Karate-blog.net ... in short, I could talk about the hours, but I knew that I would have only 3 minutes (like a fight in competition :-)), he It will be necessary to be concise; It's not my forte. I stress a little, but it's ok, I handle pretty well.
When the interview arrives, I feel very quickly that the seconds count. We have a permanent meter that scrolls on the screen and as soon as the presenter (Laurence Laborie) asks a question, I feel that she would already ask the next.
Finally, I manage to minimize and say the essentials, but it's hot anyway.
At the end, I'm a little surprised because I was hoping to have a supplementary question, but unfortunately it's the meter that decided
I would have liked to say in 2 words all the benefits of karate practice on physical and spiritual health, but hey, I'm still very satisfied overall; in 4 minutes we pronounced 16 times the word Karate on TV, once every 15 seconds, it's already very good ...
For those who missed the live, I invite you to watch the video recording now.
I put you the written transcript of the interview right after.
JT 12 / 13 from France 3 Champagne-Ardennes on 31 / 08 / 2015 in Reims:
presenter : Laurence Laborie (France 3)
Guest : Bruno Bandelier (Karate-blog.net)
Title: "Finally, a muscular comeback. With these online karate courses, a LANGRES teacher proposes to train at home. This free educational tool has already attracted more than 15000 subscribers around the world. Bruno Bandelier is our guest! Thank you for being with us. Nice to meet you for your 12 / 12 and welcome to France 3 Champagne-Ardenne »
"And from the tatami stage to get off to a good start this fall, and if you went to Karate from home! If so, it is possible thanks to Bruno Bandelier.
France 3 :
Hello. Thank you for being with us. So you are a qualified teacher at Karate Club Langres,
Black Belt 3e dan and you offer courses online. What is it about ?
In fact, I created Karate-Blog.net ™ to help people who do Karate to revise and progress faster by alternating dojo and home classes, and those who do not do karate. , to discover karate to make them want to make it.
And to better understand, we will immediately see an excerpt. We'll talk about it right after
-> Extract of Heian Shodan where I explain the release of the arm and the Tetsui in the first part of the Kata
And there you explain the Heian Shodan ... You speak a lot
What is the concept finally? What is your method?
In fact I'm doing the video lessons the same way I would do them in front of my students.
So in fact, I tend to explain everything in detail, to visualize the flaws he may have and explain them so that someone in front of the camera can self-correct and progress as and when.
In fact it's really karate classes. It's not just demonstrations
France 3 :
We must already have the basics of Karate ...
Bruno: Not especially ...
France 3: ... or is your site still aimed at novices?
Yes ! In fact when you arrive on the site, there is a "beginner" section where I put a specific training program for beginners with the very first courses:
How to make a basic punch, a kick and so the courses follow each other ...
A beginner can very well follow the courses and evolve as and when.
Of course there is no confrontation with anyone else, so it's much better to go to a club at the same time
How was the idea born? There was a real demand?
In fact, I always thought that you had to train at home in addition to the lessons at the dojo and I wanted to create the Karate Club site of Langres ... I created the website and I wanted to put them on Karate course video but looking on the internet I realized that there was none, it did not exist. We find some courses but there is no real site
So, I decided to create my own website, it's Karate-blog.net.
I called it karate clear and clean because I say everything I know.
I do not hide anything, I say everything I know ... I have no taboo
After, I do not know everything but all I know I say
(As I speak, they show a club training with children)
There we saw a club class with students face to face.
Is not the limit of your site not being able to correct them directly?
In fact, yes and no because the big advantage of the video is that already in the videos, me when
the fact, I really have this feeling of having a student in front of me and it's still courses that I'm used to doing so I know the mistakes they will make and I say in the videos.
I mention the common mistakes students make and explain how not to do them and how to fix them.
And the advantage of the video is that the student can watch 10 once, 100 once if he wants and each time get the explanation.
And students from all over the world, you told me ...
Ah yes ! Good, especially in the French-speaking world ... in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Canada
And I also have a lot of students from Magreb, from Africa because they have problems ... them ... they do not have clubs often ... there are places where they do not have a club. So that allows them to discover karate.
But yes I have students from all over the world who write to me ...
Thank you very much Bruno Bandelier for accepting our invitation. Thank you for coming to us.
I thank you for inviting me.
I remind you that your online karate lessons are available for free on the Karate-Blog.net ™ website.
So, thank you for being so many to send me messages of encouragement before the show and congratulations after the show. It makes me very happy especially as without all of you, KBN would not exist. So thanks !
