COVID-19 update – Yay! We’re back starting 6 June! Please read…

Hi all – Yay! We’re back!

I’m really happy to announce karate will be starting back this Saturday, 6 June.

We will returning to our normal schedule – which is attached.

Procedure –

We will be following the most recent sport-club guidelines sent out by Sport New Zealand, based on recommendations from  the Ministry of Health – which are also attached. 

Here is the most relevant section… 

– Please be sure your gis are clean and that you wash your hands before you come to karate.

– We will also have hand cleanser at the entrance.

– If you’re sick – or think you might be sick (even a little), please stay home.

– We will be using contact tracing with a quick photo of every class, and a sign-in sheet for parents, guests and visitors.

Fees –

– We halted training on 21 March – so we are just carrying all March fees forward to June.

– That means, if you were paid for March – your paid for June.

– If you were paid beyond March – just carry your due date forward 3 months.

– If you’re not sure, please drop Roberta an email and she will help you. Here’s her email – [email protected].

I appreciate everyone’s patience and efforts through all this – and really look forward to getting back to training with each other.

Cheers – elo
