OCTOBER 2020 COVID-19 UPDATE
ESSEX ON HIGH ALERT TIER
CLASSES STILL RUNNING
The gov.uk page "Local COVID alert levels: what you need to know", states that:
"exercise classes and organised sport can continue to take place outdoors. These will only be permitted indoors if it is possible for people to avoid mixing with people they do not live with or share a support bubble with, or for youth or disability sport"
So firstly, youth sports is fine, so our non-adult students are all OK. Plus the parents of our youth students are in the same bubble.
Any adult that trains with us, including myself as Instructor must observe Social Distancing regulations at all times and must wear a mask prior to and at the completion of training.
We are limited to a maximum of 30 per class (Students, Instructors, Parents combined) and for our Takeley classes will reduce this number even more.
We are fortunate to be supported by the Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain (TAGB), the largest Tae Kwon-Do Association in the UK, and itself a founder member of the British Tae Kwon-Do Council (BTC), who govern and support our club in these difficult times.
You must stay at least 1½ metres away from any other student who is not in your family or bubble
We no longer train in bare feet. You MUST wear a light plimsol or training shoe
Your Instuctor will take the temperature of every student before any indoor class
Enjoy! It is still possible to learn, practice and improve Tae Kwon-Do techniques in this environment
March 2020 lock down started the day before our first five students were due to take their inaugural grading. When we resumed training back in July, all five returned and had been practising at home. They were allowed the unique opportunity to "double-grade" in September and I was massively proud to be able to award them their yellow belts in recognition of their work and achievement. DunmowTKD's first Black Belt Students in the making!
