I am sure this has happened to us all at some point: you've made a search online, found some promising results and clicked the link to one of the websites. The website opens and after a quick scan around at the information and images, you click on the News or Blog link, eager to find out what the service or business has been up to recently, only to find the last update was several months ago...
"Has the business closed", you wonder. "Or have they just not got round to posted anything recently?!"
In our case it's the latter, but I'm pleased to confirm that our in-person martial arts classes have literally just restarted. A combination of lockdowns and searching for a new venue means this has been a 20 month break! (In fact, this is not strictly true; we've had a small group training and grading online since April 2020).
In the interests of protecting each other we are operating with some restrictions (see further below) but our classes are now held at the following location, conveniently located between Ealing Broadway and Ealing Common:
St Matthew's Church Hall
North Common Road
London W5 2QA
Look out for the gate on the left side of the church. Follow the path to the hall at the rear to your left.
Some points for returning students and those interested in discovering Choi Kwang-Do for the first time:
- Currently, classes are observing social distancing and will not include any partner or equipment work, unless training in a family group.
- We would ask that students arrive dressed for class, as much as possible. Toilets are available and a separate kitchen area for changing, if needed.
- Doors will be open for ventilation, so you may wish to wear a t-shirt or extra layer under your uniform top.
- No spectators; we're asking parents of regular students to drop and collect their child. Parents are welcome to observe if bringing a child for a free trial lesson.
Get in touch today if you would like more information on the new classes or interesting in booking a free trial.
