Dear TJK Members,
It’s been along time! We hope you have all been well and healthy and managing during this pandemic.
I am writing to give you a brief update on how we at TJK Jujutsu clubs are planning once again to re-start a phased come back to training in January We are currently in talks with our sports and school hall providers as to the best way forward.
Phase 1- Covid Safe Classes.
It is important that we follow government guidelines to give our members the confidence that we are taking social distancing measures seriously. Therefore there will be restrictions and changes in the way we will be conducting the classes.
Class Sizes: A maximum of 16 per class. Those of you who have maintained your monthly payments will automatically be given a place in the class. Available spaces will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
Training Times: During this phase, all classes will be 45 mins long with a maximum capacity of 16 people to allow time and space for entry and departure before the next class begins and to sanitise our mats.
Non contact training: Students will be placed on individual mats and be a min of 2 metres apart. Siblings or members from the same household may train together .
Lesson plans: We are well aware that having such a long time of training / exercise may cause members to feel rusty or anxious about restarting. With this in mind your instructor has carefully put together a “Start Back” lesson plan with simple and basic fundamental jujutsu Drills, fitness and conditioning. This will greatly benefit all our members to re-engage, recap and prepare for phase 2 training.
Our instructors have attended Covid Safety courses and will carry out all training instructions verbally. Clear safety instructions will be given at the start and end of class.
Arriving at Class.
If possible all members to arrive at the facility in correct Kit and ready to train. You will require to wear a mask whilst entering the facility area. Once you are in the training hall you can take this off. Use of changing rooms and showering facilities should in general be avoided. Toilet facilities will be available. Please ensure that you bring your own ready filled water bottle for hydration.
Parents or Guardians accompanying young children are responsible for supervising them at all times and should follow social distancing guidelines. Only one Parent is permitted to accompany their child. Older children should be dropped off and collected outside the premises with prior parental arrangements.
Sorry strictly No Spectators unless prior authorisation is given.
Hygiene is a top priority. Most of our facilities such as sports centre will have sanitising areas. However hand sanitisers and wipes will be available on the table at class reception.
You should not attend if you have symptoms, in isolation 7 or 14 days or are awaiting test and trace results.
Booking your place:
All members must book their lessons online. You will not be able to just turn up to a class and pay. Please use the form found here to request a place.
It’s been a very challenging period for our community clubs and we are aware that the new arrangements may not suit everyone. As instructors we will do our very best to help you reignite your passion for Jujutsu and get you back to the level you attained before the closure.
If you are unsure of any of the details above please do not hesitate to contact your instructor / club secretary.
Looking forward seeing you again soon.
Sensei Ross Iannoccaro
