Dear Parent / Member
I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe
As you know by now, we have been put in a situation again where we have to close down for the next 3 weeks, so unfortunately we are unable to have our classes in any of our venues. I hope that when the 3 weeks are up we will be able to get back to our classes again.
Please go to our website and try and keep up with your training with the train at home series which have video’s and information up there to help you keep up with your training.
Remember; We must all do our bit to keep each other safe from this virus so please practice the hygiene tips that we are all been asked to do; keep your distance and we’ll get through this quickly.
Hope to see you all soon.

I hope you are all keeping well during this stressful time in all our lives.
As some of you are aware, we have been back training with our senior members in Adamstown for a while now, as we were waiting to see how things would go before we decided to bring the juniors back.
Our first thought was to bring them back at the beginning of September when the schools reopen, but unfortunately with the new restrictions in place until the 13th of September where there can only be 6 training indoor or in pods of 6 with 2 meters distancing plus we have to have 1 instructor for each pod, this creates a big problem for us in Adamstown as we have such an amount of juniors training in each class and only so much space in the hall.
If the rule of 2 meters where to be reduced to 1 meter and the 6 indoor was to be relaxed that would greatly change things as we would be able to bring more students back to training but for now we can’t do anything about this.
We are also looking at bringing back the little dragon classes, but unfortunately we are in the same situation as the junior classes and with the protocol of not having spectators or parents in the hall this will also make it more difficult for us to bring them back as you well know the smaller children are used to having the parents there.
We ask that you bear with us at this difficult time and hopefully we can sort something out.
I completely understand that some of you may not want to send your child back for a while when we do start back which we would hope to be October then that’s no problem, but if you are interested In sending them back , if you could let me know asap that way we can start preparing for it.
Please let me know the name and grade of your child if they are coming back how we can arrange the class time for them
If you know of anyone who did not get this e-mail could you please ask them to send me their e-mail address as some people may have changed their e-mail address
