End of Covid Restrictions
The remaining Covid restrictions in England end on Thursday 24th February. As a responsible Club, we will therefore carefully start to remove some of the remaining control measures we have in place for Covid.
We will be keeping some of the measures introduced though, including; pre-booking lessons, cashless payment, and providing sanitiser fluid. Pre-booking lessons makes it easier to control the student to instructor ratio, while cashless payment has led to less time taken in classes accepting payment for lessons. Continuing to provide hand sanitiser seems to make sense as there are lots of other viruses out there in addition to Covid.
We sincerely hope that we never have to go through a similar experience again. The Club welcomes any feedback though, about what we have done, or not done over the past two years. Please let us know what we could have done differently, or better. This will allow us to learn and change things if we ever have to do something similar again.
We want to thank all of our members for their support throughout the Club’s most challenging period.
Return of Grading Tests
During the first weekend in October we held our first grading tests in over 18 months. This is the first time several of our students have tested formally even though some have been training with us for well over a year. Congratulations to all of our students that gained promotion following the grading, particularly the four students that tested to 1st Dan Black Belt. Well done to you all!
Reopening of Classes at Brighouse Swimming Pool
On 5th September we are resuming our lessons at Brighouse Swimming Pool. This follows a five month break and the Pool lifting the tight restrictions on occupancy limits in the Dance Studio. Classes will run every Sunday from 12pm to 1pm. We are looking forward to welcoming our students back again.
