Temporary School Closures
School Update, 1st July 2020: As you are all no doubt aware the government has said indoor sports clubs can not open from the 4th July.
This is clearly devastating news for Worcestershire Martial Arts instructors and participants who are eager to return to the Dojang. We had all hoped given the crucial role in physical and mental well-being that martial arts - along with other indoor fitness classes and gyms plays - that we could resume alongside hotels, bars and restaurants. Whilst not the news many would be hoping for we do believe a nod will be given for a full return is now only a couple of weeks away depending on local spikes and any other change in national situation.
Upon having the nod from the powers that be, we are sure that the government's guidelines as to what is required of us will be complex and therefore it may take a bit of time for us to get set up and complying with those guidelines. As always our top priority is for the safety of our instructors and members and to minimise the risks for everyone’s safety.
We have already got the following in place in readiness for reopening:
An exit strategy and Covid policy
A Covid risk assessment that overlays our existing risk assessment
Lead instructors have completed Covid aware martial arts instructor readiness certification and infection prevention control certification
When we reopen this will initially be on a phased return for our current members and there will be a plethora of new policies, procedures and rules in place for members to follow, we anticipate there will be a number of changes in place. If you are a new beginner who would like to take one of our classes, please submit the expression of interest form so that we can update you when new beginner places come available, however new places may not be available for quite some time.
If you are a current member of WMA and aren’t a member of the WMA Facebook group, please join ASAP to keep in touch with us and the rest of your classmates! Also keep an eye on emails (including junk email), Facebook, and Instagram for further updates, and announcements regarding when classes will be able to resume as normal.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding at this difficult time - you, and your support, makes Worcestershire Martial Arts what it is and we are looking forward to welcoming you back to our classes!
