BBKS and Coronavirus Update
BBKS and Covid-19/Coronavirus Update:
Out of an abundance of caution for the health and wellness of our BBKS members and their families, we have made the decision to follow the lead of our local school districts, as well as CDC recommendations, and move all classes ONLINE beginning Monday, March 16th. What will this look like?
- Instructors will be uploading class videos to our private Facebook groups at the beginning of each week. If you are not yet a member, here is the direct link to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1534171010161125/
- Students can complete their classes at home- this is a great opportunity to get active and break up the day-to-day routine!
- In order to track attendance, comment below each video letting us know that you or your child completed the class at home. Please include both their first and last name in your comment. This will allow students to continue earning attendance stripes towards graduation!
For their Final Stripe Test, students will need to submit a video demonstrating their requirements. Further details will be shared soon on when and where to submit their video. This only applies to students ages 7 and older in the kids’ program (not Little Dragons).
Our graduation will be postponed until further notice. Students do not need to have a teacher complete their Intent to Promote sheet at this time. We will place orders for belts once on-site classes have resumed.
During this time, BBKS staff will be available to answer any questions you may have! Please reach out to us at any time. At the moment, messaging us via the Black Belt Karate Studio Facebook page is our preferred method for communication, as we are trying to allow our staff flexibility to work from home and be with their families. If you do not have access to Facebook for messaging or accessing the class videos, please let us know and we can make accommodations.
While this will pose new challenges, the health and safety of the children of our community is paramount. We still look forward to providing the absolute best martial arts instruction possible through a new and different medium. We will continue to post updates and information as needed, and wish you all health and safety during this time.
