The following is the text from a message sent to members of Barry’s clubs. For information on Dan’s and Claire’s clubs, please contact them directly.
After a very long break, I am delighted to say that a number of classes will be reopening shortly.For anybody aged 15 or over, you can already return to training in the following clubs: Innishannon – Mondays 7pm, Ballinhassig Fridays 7pm and Ballydehob Tuesdays 7pm. If you are 15 or over and have not already returned to class, please contact me first on firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know when you plan to return, so that I can keep track of numbers and ensure that we remain compliant with regulations.
For members under 15, we will be reopening classes at our larger venues to begin with, to allow our more advanced students a chance to get back into training, and to give me some practice in running junior classes again!For Bandon, Innishannon and Ballinhassig clubs, all students under 15, graded Green Belt* or higher are invited to return to training in Innishannon.
For Baltimore, Ballydehob and Schull clubs, all students under 15, graded White Belt* or higher are invited to return to training in Ballydehob or Skibbereen.
*That is the solid Green Belt or White Belt, which would have been awarded after taking a grading examination, not the White/Green striped belt used in the Ninja class.
Other grade groups will hopefully recommence soon, but a date has not yet been set.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***
Individual clubs and venues may have their own requirements and protocols. Please be aware of the following:
Innishannon, Ballinhassig & Ballydehob:
If you plan to attend any of these classes, you must contact the instructor by this Friday to ensure that your place is reserved, as numbers are still restricted due to health and safety regulations.
Innishannon class, Ballydehob class: Contact Barry – email@example.com
Skibbereen class: Contact Dan – firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to seeing you all soon.Kind Regards
