Quarantine? Isolation? We’ll help you train at home!

Let’s go over how we’ll handle the situation in the event you’re home Quarantining or Isolating.

If you would prefer video of this information, please follow this link:  Quarantine?  Isolation?

You’ll continue to have our instructional support during this period.  We’ll work together to keep your karate instruction moving forward positively and constructively while you’re at home.  This doesn’t have to be anything more than a brief change in how we work together.

We have distance learning resources available for you — online Video Tutorials on your karate skills, as well as written guides to these.

If you are having to Quarantine or Isolate, please contact our school at your earliest convenience, and let us know.

Mr. Booker, our Senior Instructor, will create individual lesson plans for you on a week-by-week basis.  These will guide you in using your Video Tutorials to practice effectively with your karate skills at home.  Our younger students will need the help of their parents as training partners and coaches to get the most out of these.

You can then submit video of you demonstrating these skills so that he can provide you with feedback and any needed coaching.

We will continue this throughout your period of Quarantine/Isolation.  This is currently about two weeks, and in the case of precautionary Quarantine has often been significantly less.

Once you’ve been cleared to resume in-person instruction, please return to your usual lessons.  We’ll be happy to see you back!

We’ll also schedule one or more private lessons as needed.  We’ll work through your karate skills together, to help get you back up to speed on these and make sure you understand them properly.

One last word:  when you’re practicing at home, don’t worry about having to be “spot on” perfect with your skills.  Just do your best with them.  What is most important is that you’re engaging with these skills mentally, and practicing consistently with them physically.  We can polish up the fine details together once you’re back in class!

Should you need to Quarantine or Isolate, just contact our school and we will make the necessary arrangements.
