Dear KSW Glasgow students. I have been doing a lot of thinking about the situation we face for the past few weeks and I now feel it is best that we cancel classes until this virus passes.
I don’t take this decision lightly, and it upsets me greatly. It also pains me to ask but please (if you can afford it) continue paying membership if you can. We still have the costs of the dojang to pay and we don’t have enough cash reserves to see us through the next couple months. I will repay you with private lessons, free gradings or a club t shirt on the other side of this shutdown to show my gratitude.
We will try to make the most of this situation and exercise is vitally important for our health and wellbeing so we will be uploading instructional videos and challenges for people to continue training at home. It would be great if you could get involved by sharing photos and videos of you training to keep spirits high and encourage everyone else to keep up with their training! I will be looking into upgrading the website with a student area for these videos and I will give the password out to anyone who continues to pay membership fees.
I will start tonight with a circuits routine posted in our private Facebook group, I will post a list of exercises and a video of myself and JKN Sarah doing them. If you send me photo or video evidence of you training I will give you attendance points towards your next grading!!!
Speaking of grading, it is looking unlikely that it will go ahead in April so we will aim to hold it in the first week we are back training in the dojang. I still expect everyone to train if you would like to grade so make sure you send me videos for them attendance points!
I am very sorry about this but the world situation needs all of us to minimise contact to slow down this virus. We will beat it and come out the other side stronger!
Thank you all, I will miss training with you all greatly!
