Following the Government guidance on the road map of leaving lock downs the guidance is as follows returning to classes and hopefully contact classes again.
29th March we could start outdoor classes, must be socially distanced.
12th April- indoor children’s classes can return (also child and parent classes up to 15 adults). Must be socially distanced, no partner or pad work.
17th May- adults can return to indoor classes, must be socially distanced, no partner or pad work.
21st June- return to contact classes is thought at the moment.
This is guidance from numerous martial arts governing bodies and their safeguarding leads.
So, my thoughts are as following
Spirit Combat returns from April outside at the cricket fields in Bere Alston until the week of the 12th when the Children can return indoors and then adults will carry on outside until week of the 17th May.
Kickboxing we will train outside in Tavistock venue (thinking up by the pimple) to be confirmed until 17th may then we should be returning to Tavistock College indoors. Once I know what my fa tutoring future is on the 30th April, we may end up moving kickboxing to a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday or add another night.
My plan for both clubs is to have seminars/master classes running at weekends from July for anyone that’s interested in topics such as;
- Ring craft
- Throws and take downs, with counters
- Locks, with counters
- Edged weapons
- Close quarter combat
- Modern Aikido levels 1 and 2
- Injury prevention in martial arts
- Weapons (bo, sai, escrema, nunchu, broken)
- Self-defence (qualifications also available)
Some sessions will be age related
So, thoughts on outdoor classes until indoor ones can be started would be appreciated. Feel free to message me on 07773863518 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
