We understand this is a very worrying time for many people, so we want to assure our members we are thinking carefully about the coronavirus/Covid19 in relation to our martial arts training.
Things are changing rapidly and we will of course follow all official advice, but at present there is no suggestion that small class activities should be affected, however we are putting extra measures in place to keep everyone safe.
In an effort to follow best advice, improve hygiene and reduce the possibility of transmission within our academy, we ask that all members and visitors wash their hands thoroughly upon arrival at the school, as well as continuing to practise good hygiene as one would normally expect for a martial arts practitioner (i.e. shower before and after training, was your uniform after every use, don’t share personal equipment etc).
We will ensure that our training pads/bags are properly cleaned with disinfectant wipes before/after any session when they are used in class.
If you feel ill please don’t come to class
As always please do not come to the school or bring your child to training if there is any suspicion of illness within your household, including;
- Generally feeling unwell
- High temperature
- Coughing or sore throat
- Shortness of breath
This is sensible advice for *any* time, not just during this virus pandemic.
Please do not come to class or bring your child to training if you have recently returned from travelling to any of the areas currently known to be affected by outbreaks of Covid-19/ Coronavirus. Contact your doctor for more information.
Any persons who come to the school showing any symptom of illness (however mild) will be asked to leave. Please help us to avoid this embarrassing situation by heeding the advice given above.
The risk to the general population remains low and we do not wish to cause alarm, but equally we wish to reassure you we are treating this outbreak seriously and doing what we can to minimise risk to yourselves, our instructors, our families and the wider community.
