class cancellations

Dear Student/Parent,

One of the participants who attended the red and blackbelt lesson on Thursday 1st July and Saturday 3rd July at All Saints centre has tested positive for Covid – 19.

I am now self-isolating. I have no symptoms, a negative lateral flow test and have taken a PCR test this morning. I’ll advise you of the result of my test when I get it.

Most of the assistant instructors are compromised as well, so it isn’t possible to get cover for the classes. Consequently, I will be cancelling all lessons until 13th July. This will include the grading on Sunday. I hope to move the grading to the following week, 18th July – I’ll be in touch to confirm this.

It was inevitable that we would get an issue that affects the class timetable, and I think we have been lucky to avoid substantial disruption so far. I’m looking on this as an opportunity to work on my flexibility and to improve my Taekwon do knowledge. Why don’t you do the same!

Could you use the instructional videos on the academy website https://www.newcastleblackbeltacademy.co.uk/videos/ to continue with your development.
