Getting back to the 'new normal' & staying safe
The Coronavirus Pandemic has affected everyone in some way. Thankfully everyone within our 'family' has remained fit and well and are able to return to classes. Now, Kenagi has a responsibility to do all we can to ensure we provide safe and secure training classes to all of our students, from those who have been with us for years, to those just joining us.
Changes to classes
As of the 25th of July, the Government has stated that we can resume training classes, but there are additional measures we must follow in order to keep our students safe.
If you've attended classes previously, you'll notice some changes to the class structure designed to reduce contact and maintain social distance. If you're new to Kenagi, here's an outline of some of the measures in place that you can expect.
- Limiting class numbers - pre-booking is essential
To ensure that we can maintain a safe environment during training sessions, we're restricting the number of students for each class. This now, unfortunately, means it's essential to book your slot ahead of the class.
Get in touch to book a class.
- Essential equipment - what you'll need to bring
You'll need to be wearing clothes and footwear that will be comfortable to train in. We recommend you bring along a bottle of water and ask that each student has their own hand sanitizer. Additionally, students are required to bring a completed track & trace form, confirming that they are well.
Download and print the Track and Trace Form.
- When you arrive - what to expect
We ask that all students wait outside until the previous class has finished, sanitise their hands before entering, and maintain social distancing at all times. When entering the class (or DoJo) you will be asked for your Track and Trace Form and your temperature will be taken with an infrared thermometer.
Families of the same household can train together, which is why we're introduced a new offer - a child can train free with every paying adult until one of you achieves your first belt. Contact us quoting 'Child Trains for Free' >
- During and after classes - health & hygiene
During classes, you'll need to maintain a safe distance, keep your shoes on, and refrain from sharing any equipment with others. Toilets and water are available during classes but we would encourage students to plan ahead and only use these facilities when absolutely necessary. At the end of each session high contact areas, such as door handles, are wiped down with disinfectant.
Train at home with a personal session
We're doing all we can to make our classes safe. But, if you'd prefer to stay at home or simply looking for personal training sessions with a difference, why not learn Martial Arts at home?
From just £35 per hour (dependant on location), Sensei Brian Redman, who has been teaching Karate and Kickboxing for more than four decades, will come to your home and help you to learn Martial Arts.
