We now have less than a week to go before we can reopen our physical classes! We are all go for classes to restart next Monday, 12th April.
The details for the reopening will be discussed on the club meeting this Wednesday at 7pm. The link for this meeting is : https://us02web.zoom.us/j/2105911694?pwd=MlkybTNyMGNzMnV4cUlyb2ZuSjhvdz09. Please do try to make the meeting as there are some important details, especially for adult members, to be discussed to make sure we can reopen within the government guidelines for the step 2 of the easing of lockdown.
Thank you to everyone who has signed up for classes. We are delighted at the response and we still do a have a few spare places available in some classes so its not too late to sign up.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday evening and welcoming everyone back to the dojang from next Monday.
Quick reminder that as we are now once again running contact work in classes, please can everyone check that toe and finger nails are kept short and clean, and that long hair is tied up when training.
In three weeks time we expect to be able to take the next step in reopening in line with Step 3 of the government easing of lockdown. We hope this will allow us to resume a normal class structure for adults rather than just individual training. At that point we believe that we will also be able to make some adjustments to our classes to provide more capacity, return to physical training for the Competition Poomsae Training, reintroduce the monthly Sport Taekwondo Session and the Senior Belt Training. We will share more details as soon as we have guidance on what will be permitted at Step 3.
Finally, next Monday, 3rd May, is a bank holiday so classes will not be running. If you / your children normally train on a Monday we do have spaces available this Friday and Sunday if you would like to train in an alternative class. Please email us to check availability.
Thank you for your continued support.
The guidelines for indoor training from the 12th April for adults, who are the majority of those who attend this training, would not allow us to run this session effectively as a physical class. We however hope to return to this being a physical class once we reach Step 3 of the government's lockdown easing plan.
We are continuing to enter online poomsae competitions. Our next one will be run from the 1st - 9th May with details here https://www.martial.events/en/events/4th-lents-taekwondo-worldwide-sports-online-poomsae-open-2021-recognized-poomsae. Videoing for this event would be during the previous week. With the new guidelines for indoor training we will be able to use the dojang for videoing for all ages, so hopefully that will make it easier. If you are interested in entering please let us know.
