Turramurra Dojo will open for training on Wednesday 13 October.
All students 16 years and over will be required to bring proof of double vaccination status. We request vaccination in students age 12-15 years. Students under 12 may also return to training. Masks are to be worn. We are complying with all NSW Health guidelines, including the use of a QR code when entering and leaving the dojo.
ANNOUNCEMENT FOR STUDENTS & INSTRUCTORS AT TURRAMURRA DOJO:
Training resumes on Monday. We will be following our COVID-safe practices (including cleaning protocols) and following all NSW Government guidance and laws. We ask all students and parents to observe the following:
1) If you are unwell or have any cold-like symptoms DO NOT COME TO TRAINING until you have taken a COVID test. This is for all students and instructors, without exception.
2) Due to the 4-square-metre rule returning, class sizes are limited. Please attend the classes you were enrolled in last year. If you would like to change classes, or be reminded which classes you are scheduled for, message this page.
3) We are setting up a NSW Government QR code. We will ask all students (or parent/guardian, in the case of children) to scan the QR code upon arrival.
4) If you need to bring a bag to training to bring gear/other clothes, do so, but do not loiter before and after training. To help with social distancing, the dojo office is strictly for black belts only.
We look forward to welcoming you all back to training and starting the year in a strong manner. We will be diligent with everyone’s safety, while also keeping focused on continuing to foster and develop all students’ martial arts skills, fitness and personal growth.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Due to the unfolding situation in Sydney, ALL TRAINING sessions next week (Monday & Wednesday, Kids & Adults classes) are CANCELLED, including the final class.
The Dinner in Gordon scheduled on Monday is POSTPONED. We will aim for the dinner in the second half of January. This will be confirmed in the New Year.
GRADING RESULTS will be given out in the first week of January.
TRAINING 2021 is still set to resume on Monday January 4th. We will provide further updates closer to the time.
I sincerely apologise for any disruption or disappointment, but in the interests of the safety of our students and their families, we believe this is the necessary course of action. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
