Summer Term Resumes Outdoors on July 5th!
If you've been waiting for in-person classes to return, the wait is over and it's time to join us again!
Our summer term continues on July 5th, Monday, with 6 weeks of classes remaining. Be sure to purchase tokens accordingly (we have provided 6 and 12 token options for this term).
Most Classes Will Be Held Outdoors until August 15, Sunday
All Shaolin Kung Fu and Shaolin Tai Chi classes from Wednesdays to Saturdays inclusive will be held outdoors at Grange Park. Please meet at the park rather than going to the school (unless you need a new uniform).
Master Dao will be teaching all the outdoor Shaolin classes and adults and children will train at the same time (as we have been doing through Virtual Online Classes) while separated into two groups.
Classes on Tuesdays and Sundays will continue through live virtual Zoom sessions. The times of ALL classes remain unchanged.
Wudang classes on Mondays will continue outdoors. Please contact your teacher David Ballantyne for more information.
Wing Chun will restart in September at the school.
COVID-19 Regulations and Requirements
Masks will not be required as we will be maintaining social distance of 3 metres. Our maximum group size is 25.
In the Event of Rain...
In the event of more than 5 minutes of rain during class, the class will be cancelled and tokens will be automatically returned. There will be no Zoom make up classes so you will need to reserve on another day to make use of the tokens (since tokens cannot be carried forward to a new term).
If there is moderate to heavy rain within 2 hours of class, we will likely cancel the class.
Please do not email us to enquire whether class is proceeding. Instead, please check the weekly schedule for the latest information. If the class is cancelled you will see a notice labelled "CLASS CANCELLED" under the scheduled class and highlighted in orange.
How to Reserve a Spot for Class
Be sure to reserve a spot ahead of time to guarantee your participation. We have a limit of 12 for each class.
To reserve a spot for class, go to the weekly schedule and find the class as usual.
If you have previously set up an auto-reserve for the Virtual Online Classes, you will now need to set up new auto-reserves for Wednesday to Saturday classes to ensure your spot is confirmed.
When Will We Return to Indoor Classes?
We will reopen the school for in-person classes for the Fall Term which will start on Monday, September 6.
We are not anticipating requiring proof of vaccination as most people will have already had their 2nd dose. However, if for some reason you have not gotten your vaccine shot, we highly recommend that you do.
