Hello Students and parents, as most of you are aware there was an announcement to day by the Ontario government that will effect our in person class schedule for the next 4 weeks. If not, here is a quick excerpt from the Milton chamber of commerce.
“The Ontario government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health and other health experts, is imposing a provincewide emergency brake as a result of an alarming surge in case numbers and COVID-19 hospitalizations across the province. The provincewide emergency brake will be effective Saturday, April 3, 2021, at 12:01 a.m. and the government intends to keep this in place for at least four weeks.”
In person class registration has been temporarily removed from our booking schedule in the Student Portal. For every one already booked into todays classes, they will be able to attend as usual. If you have not booked in yet you will be required to book into the “Remote Classes” option.
I would also like to remind our members and their families that we are offering all our online workouts (not karate classes) for free during the month of April. There are both live and pre-recorded classes that star every hour. To gain access to these classes during April, all you need to do is download our partner app called MyZone from your app store. To gain your free month of access all you need to do is register with our Club ID when prompted “MAMCA001”, when asked for your Belt ID just enter the number 0, you can always change this later should you decide to purchase a compatible heart rate monitor and join the program. Please note the belt is not required to participate in the free trial.
For those of you who enrolled into any of the April workshop as an in person attendee, we will be moving your attendance to the online version. You can find the Zoom ID by logging into the Student Portal and viewing the online event details.
If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us via e-mail or by using the contact us form on the website.
Have you checked out our AMA Milton MyZone Club yet?
Our partnership with MyZone allows students and parents alike to workout together both virtually or in person at the dojo. Stay connected by cheering each other on or by creating challenges to invite your friends to.
please remember that there are no classes scheduled this week as we moved our annual vacation from December to January in order to get as many in person classes into the schedule as we could before the lock down.
Normally we would have been closed for two weeks starting December 19th as a part of our regular schedule. Instead we will only be closed 1 week in January.
All we want for Christmas is…to see you again soon.Here is wishing all your holiday’s are bright, happy and may all your Christmas wishes come true. 2021 will be a better year with more opportunities for everyone. We wish you all the best and a lot of success in the coming year.
I’m sure by now you have all heard about the impending province wide lockdown starting December 26th…
We knew this was likely coming and had sent out reminders for every one to get their home training spaces ready. While we will keep our eye out for the written details as to what the limitations are for sports training facilities, right now it looks like we will be moving to a fully online experience for the month of January (28 days)
Please also keep in mind that the dojo was previously scheduled to be closed the 2nd week of January anyway (Jan 9th to 16th), so there will be no change there. This was in leu of staying open over the holidays.
We expect to see all members who are currently attending at the dojo to temporarily move to the online classes so that their training can continue uninterrupted. We will not be freezing membership over this period.
Whether you have only the space between your bed and dresser, or if you have a full home gym in your basement, we have people making it work. So if you need ideas or help, please reach out.
Sensei Julie and I will be keeping our eye on the latest updates and will re-open the dojo space as soon as possible.
This year we have opted to stay open during December except for the stat holidays and Boxing Day. Normally we close for the two weeks between the 19th and Jan 1st. Instead we will be closing for 1 week in January (2nd week of January)
