Nepean Martial Arts’ Response to the Coronavirus
NMA has suspended all classes, workshops and gradings from Monday, March 23.
A great deal has changed since we published our last response to the Corona Virus, just a week ago. As a result of the changes in directives from both the Federal and NSW governments, Nepean Martial Arts classes, workshops and gradings will be suspended until further notice. No-one knows how the current situation will play out but we do know that continuing to run classes and hold events would contradict government directives to cease all indoor fitness activities and would put our students and their families at risk – something we cannot countenance.
We will be posting some training tips for Taekwondo, Haidong Gumdo and Liu He Ba Fa here and on Facebook while we’re on our enforced “holiday”. If you have any special requests please use the Message Us fields to let us know.
In the meantime, please check in to this website often, and follow us at Facebook.com/NepeanMartialArts/
Stay safe, look after the people you love, and be kind to each other. We look forward to seeing you all again as soon as we possibly can so that we can all resume our normal activities, including having fun, staying fit and learning to be stronger through our martial arts!
