Countdown to the Return to Physical Training Update 4

It is now only 2 weeks before we can reopen the dojang for physical classes! Initial guidelines have been received from British Taekwondo and we have had a chance to review these and put together our class plans for the different age and grade groups.

We will be holding a club meeting on Zoom to talk through the guidelines for reopening. This will be at 7pm on Wednesday 7th April. This is open to all club members, parents/guardians of junior members and it would also be great to see any former members who are thinking about restarting.

The link for the meeting is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/2105911694?pwd=MlkybTNyMGNzMnV4cUlyb2ZuSjhvdz09

It has been great to hear back from so many signing up for physical classes from the 12th April. However, if you have not yet replied with your class preferences please do so, some classes are already fully booked and we expect most others to be so soon.

Thank you.

No classes on Easter weekend

We will be taking a short break from classes over the Easter weekend. There will be no classes from Friday 2nd April to Monday 5th April. This will give our instructors some downtime before we resume physical classes and a chance for us to finish preparations for the re-opening of the dojang.

Also as we are re-opening physical classes as from Monday 12th April, if you haven't yet confirmed your class preferences, please can you let us know as soon as possible. This is really important as it allows us to ensure we can manage classes within the new guidelines in a fair way for our existing members and also provide taster sessions for new people or former members wanting to return to Taekwondo.

Self Defence

We understand that women’s safety is an important topic of discussion right now and we want to do what we can to support the women in our community.

Women have to the right to go where they want, when they want, wearing what they want without needing to fear abuse or attack. However, we recognise this isn’t always the case.

Therefore, we have put together some basic self-defence that we hope could be helpful.

We also pledge that once lockdown restrictions are eased, to provide a free self-defence course for women in our community.

We will be assuming that the classes that you/your children were training in before Christmas will be the ones that you wish to continue with and we will be in contact to confirm these with you. If you wish to make any changes, please do contact us.

As we prepare to return to the normal classes we would encourage everyone to be training online in full doboks except for the stretching and high energy classes. We are aware that some of our younger members may well have outgrown their doboks during lockdown, and we have a stock of all sizes available. If you would like to order doboks please send us an email.

Thank you once again for your continued support and if you have any questions please just send us an This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Possible daytime classes on a Thursday

We are looking at opportunities to extend the training opportunities for our members and also options for new beginners. One option that we are considering is adding a pair of classes during the day on a Thursday. This would be a high energy/fitness class and a lower grade technical class, suitable for all ages/grades including beginners. If you / your children would be interested please share your views in our survey here.

Please also feel free to share this with friends and relatives if you think they might be interested in trying Taekwondo.

If there is interest, we would be looking to launch these classes at the start of March. Initially we expect we would be running online but would look to continue the classes when we can return to face-to-face training but potentially with different training times as schools and workplaces reopen.

Thank you for your continued support.
