Following the most recent Government Announcement today, Friday 20th March, we wanted to take the time to give our Students an update on what this means for Endeavour.
As you all know we have been extremely focused on being the cleanest and most positive place to be in this unsettling time.
However, following the most recent guidelines as advised we will be closing as soon as reasonably possible.
We know so many of you have thanked us for staying open as long as possible, and have valued coming to Endeavour over the recent weeks benefitting you not only physically but mentally too, which we feel so important.
We also know how extremely hard you have worked towards your grading, not just over these past few months, but for some of you what has been years in the making.
Therefore, after discussing this with many of our valued parents and students, whilst there will be no regular classes as of this evening, for the foreseeable future, which in keeping with guidelines will be regularly reviewed, we will be continuing with gradings as the guidelines allow.
However, gradings will be strictly closed to only the students testing and will be on invitation only.
The numbers have been significantly decreased over each grading to avoid close proximity throughout,
and as always, we will be ensuring the strictest of hygiene, handwashing etc upon entry to the academy.
Parents please arrive at the academy where you will be allowed to drop your child off, and collect them along with their hopefully positive news at the end of grading.
However, with a very small number of little champions testing, we will of course allow one parent to stay whilst adhering to social distancing advice in our waiting area.
Further to this, it is with a heavy heart we must make the decision for graduation this time not to go ahead as planned, however we will make sure a huge celebration takes place on future date.
Following gradings, we are excited to be offering a variety of virtual classes for all of our members ensuring you can keep up with your training. This is something we have been working hard towards over recent weeks, and something we are working hard to finalise as soon as possible. For now, please enjoy and take part in the online challenges we have on our social media and we are excited to share the details of further virtual classes with you in the coming days.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to each and everyone one of our students, parents and Endeavour family for you continued support in what is understandably an unsettling time for everyone. We honestly can’t thank you enough!
Stay safe, happy, fit and look after your mental health! We look forward to seeing you all on the mats as soon as possible!
Mr Tom Cutforth & The Endeavour Martial Arts Team
In response to the information provided by the Government & Health Authorities, we understand that you may be feeling unsettled given the rapidly changing situation around COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
Please be reassured the health and safety of our students, family and team is our number one priority. It is our aim to keep providing classes and regular training sessions for all of our students but of course at the same time ensuring that all students, friends & family are safe, healthy and happy whilst at the academy.
In addition to the precautions and ramped up cleaning procedures detailed last week we will also be implementing the following to ensure we can continue to safely provide all our students with the best training in order to boost their fitness, health & progress to Blackbelt.
– Adapted class drills to limit close contact & amount of equipment used whilst still ensuring techniques can be taught & learnt effectively in order to prepare for grading.
– NO KIDS BJJ CLASS THIS WEDNESDAY 18TH MARCH (6.00-6.30) – this will now be an extra Catch Up class for all levels; perfect prep for grading
– NO ADULTS BJJ CLASS THIS THURSDAY 19TH MARCH (8.00-8.45)
– Re-structured Graduation (Saturday 28th March 2020) to ensure all successful students can celebrate with friends & family in the safest way (more details regarding this will follow)
Our classes have no more than 25 students in each class and we are still in the midst of preparing our at home training classes and workouts should a worst case scenario arise.
We still urge anyone with symptoms to avoid classes or should you present with any symptoms, just as you would with any other illness, and as always please continue to practice good hygiene as this is always important for everyone. Remember to use hand soap and thoroughly wash your hands while singing happy birthday to yourself twice.
We would like to thank all the Endeavour Family for their continued support as we work together to overcome these challenges, and we will continuously work to the Government guidelines and update everyone as and when required through our website and social media pages.
Martial Arts is a great benefit for not only physical but also mental health, for many easing anxiety through training. In what is understandably a very unsettling time for some, please speak to a member of our team if you have any further concerns.
A huge thank you once again for all your support.
Mr Cutforth & The Endeavour Team
