New Class Schedule - Effective October 19
In March 2020, the Covid 19 pandemic restrictions led to us temporary closing our physical doors and move our instruction online to our members only section. In June 2020, we were able to offer semi-private sessions for our students. This meant bringing back our students once per week with students of the same rank and ages, and it meant that they were being overseen by the Master Instructors instead of their own direct instructors. These sessions were 45 minutes in length.
We are excited to announce that starting on Monday, October 19, 2020, we will be taking another strong step forward for our students and the school.
We will be implementing our new schedule of
mixed rank classes that places the students
back on the night that their instructor is teaching!
What does this mean for our safety guidelines?
Our safety guidelines and precautions are the same. We will still be socially distanced and wearing masks that cover the mouth and nose. We will still be washing hands or using hand sanitizer. We will still be temperature checking everyone who comes into our building. And, we are still only having students come only one day per week in order to reduce the total density of people in the building. We are still cleaning the facility with CDC approved products regularly.
What is the new schedule?
We will have mixed rank classes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
The first class is from 6 to 7 pm for ages 6-12 (kids class).
The second class is from 7:15 to 8:15 pm for ages 13 and older (adult class).
How do I know which night I am supposed to attend?
You attend class on the night your instructor is assigned. A specific list with your name on it will be posted at our training hall so that you can clearly look up your day. For privacy, we are not posting your names or the instructors names here. The list will finalized and posted at the school on Monday, October 12.
We are excited to announce that all students will have the opportunity to get one additional class per month in a special Saturday Session.
The students will be in sessions A, B, C, or D as follows:
o 1st Session = White-Green Belts (all ages)
o 2nd Session = American Eagle Cane Style students
o 1st Session = Blue-Purple and Open System (all ages)
o 1st Session = Brown Belts (ages 18+)
o 2nd Session = Brown Belts (ages 6-17)
o 1st Session = Black Belts (All ages)
NOTE: Students under 18 will only be permitted one guardian to observe on these private sessions, and no other guests. This is needed to maintain proper social distancing in the observation areas, as well.
We will be posting a list at the training hall and on our calendar of when your group will get a Saturday Session each month. These allow you to train with students of your own rank on a special topic.
