Now the government has confirmed gyms can re-open, we’re getting ready to return to face to face training! It’s been a long five months but we’re almost there. We’re putting the final touches to the re-opening plan for the Dalgety Bay dojo, with the first night expected to be Wednesday 2nd September. For North Berwick, it looks like the return is likely to be a couple of weeks later, as the Sports Centre is not planning to reopen until 14th September, and we’re still waiting for the Queen Margaret University to confirm their plans.
Numbers will have to be limited to ensure we can maintain the 2m social distancing rules, and kumite drills with partners won’t be possible, but it will be brilliant to get the spirit back of training with others.
At present, we’re looking to give priority for these limited spaces to people who have continued to train over the summer through Zoom classes. The most likely outcome is that we’ll set up a way for you to apply for a space on a class through something like a Google spreadsheet, and we’ll confirm by email a couple of days before if you’ve been successful in getting one. We’ll keep you up to date.
