Following the publication of guidelines by the EKF and the updated conditions of hire of Woodbury Village Hall, we are now ready to resume indoor training on Sundays from 10:10am.
Phase 1 is a return to non-contact training with social distancing compliance, along with a number of other safety measures. Do not train if you or anyone in your household has any COVID-19 symptoms. Normal rules for isolation and shielding must be observed. A register of your attendance will be kept so please let me know if your contact details have changed so that I have up-to-date records.
You can attend pre-booked sessions and must arrive dressed in your gi (karate suit) as changing facilities will not be available. You must have clean footwear for training to avoid potential transmission of the virus through sweat from your feet. Wait in an orderly fashion at the main entrance observing social distancing where a health check will be conducted and your temperature taken. Hand gel is provided by the hall and must be used upon entry. Training will be conducted in clearly identified areas or tracks to allow social-distancing to be maintained. You will be instructed where to go upon entry.
During training you must be vigilant to observe that social-distancing is maintained; be aware of your area and what is going on around you. There must be no entry into another person’s space during training. Doors and windows will be opened to maintain good ventilation. There will be no kiai (shouting) during Phase 1. Face coverings are not compulsory but may be an individual’s choice. There will be no sharing of equipment. Bring your own drinks bottles as we will not be using any of the facilities at the hall; this includes toilets unless as an emergency only. Please bring your own towel to rub down to avoid transmission through sweating. Use the hand sanitiser provided as often as you like and avoid touching your face, nose or eyes. Be prepared to “Catch it, bin it, kill it!” by bringing tissues. These must be placed in plastic bags and taken away at the end of the session.
IF YOU BECOME ILL WITH COVID-19 SYMPTOMS DURING TRAINING, INFORM ME IMMEDIATELY. TRAINING WILL BE STOPPED AND YOU WILL BE ISOLATED IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO GET YOURSELF HOME.
At the end of the session you will leave in an orderly fashion through the side door where you must again use hand gel. You must leave in your gi but are advised to immediately shower and change upon returning home. Your gi MUST be washed between training sessions. Remember to practice social-distancing rules when chatting as you leave.
Please note, ALL sessions must be paid by BACS as cash will not be accepted.
If you develop COVID-19 symptoms within 7 days of attending a session please alert Test, Track and Trace and me! I will contact the relevant people at the hall.
