It was only a month off, but after the first lockdown, this seemed to be different, maybe because it didn’t seem like a full lockdown with the kids at school. Anyway classes start this morning and I know most of my students are excited, just like I am. Plus we have some newbies too, great time to start as classes are limited and we have a focus on working those techniques. If you are not a member, why not come and try.
Classes are back from December 5th! So excited to be back on the mats
Just as we seemed to be getting into the rhythm of the new normal, we are back in Lockdown and Judo classes have had to stop, classes were fun, full with the limits we had to put in place, with a waiting list for new members to join. So classes are definitely closed for this month and depending on the next announcements will either open again for a couple of weeks before Christmas or remain closed until the New Year… I’ll post more when I know.
The last 7 months have been a very interesting time for all, we finished our last Judo session mid March, we managed to do a solo distanced open air Judo morning at the end of July, which was great. Great to see so many club members come and join in, we had a few sessions and because it was solo training, we had mixed ages as well as parents joining in, so a real family vibe, which is what I strive for my club. Classes started back on the 5th September, we’ve had to put in new processes – online booking, pre-covid checks prior to classeses and creating classes that are fun as well as ensuring we feel like we are doing Judo, even though we are unable to have full contact. So yes, the time is strange and classes are a little different, but its enabling us to focus on our core techniques, focus on those areas that we often rush through. I’m thoroughly enjoying it, and feedback from my classes, my Judoka’s seem to be too.
Lastly welcome back to my members as well as to the new members that have joined this September… actually its a great time to join!
See you on the mats
Great news! Classes are returning Saturday 5th September, following the latest COVID guidelines…. email me for more information.
As we are all still self isolating to ensure we don’t continue the spread of the virus and supporting those key workers, I’m continuing posting Solo training on my YouTube channel for you Judoka’s who are missing classes and to help add to the other fitness you’re undertaking. Pop over to my YouTube channel to have a see.
I’ve set up a YouTube channel to post videos you might find useful, especially during times like we are experiencing now with the Coronavirus and the request to stay at home. Attached is a link to my channel showing ‘solo’ training so if you are missing your Judo classes, or want to try something different, give it a go.
Just a reminder all classes are postponed until further notice, I will post here, via Social Media and email further updates when available.
Stay Safe Judo Paul
