Hey Everyone! I hope you are doing as well as possible. It's becoming quite clear that this Omicron variant is resulting in an increase of covid cases around the globe. That being said, this is not the same situation or virus from March of 2020. We have been down this road before and will be (re)implementing some updated protocols starting Monday, December 20th when we re-open both academies.
Our goal has and will always be the health and well-being of our students and staff. This not only includes physical health, but mental health and social health. We have learned after 21 months, there needs to be a balance of responsible health protocols and the fundamental need to live our lives... to exercise, to connect with others and to have healthy outlets for growth. The balance of these things can be fluid and nuanced as circumstances change... and that is exactly why we are bringing back our 3-tiered Contact System with enhanced health protocols. The purpose of this system is to give our students and their families options to continue to engage with our community, learn jiu-jitsu, exercise and have these healthy outlets no matter where they sit on the risk-tolerance spectrum.
In the video above, I go into much greater detail of our health protocols. I have created this simple visual graphic (below) as well to give you a quick snapshot. As always, you can text me at 646-229-2182 if you are not sure about any of it .
We have 3 Options to Engage (listed below). You can switch between any of these options as much as you want.
1) No Contact: 100% fully remote services. This includes participating in live, online classes or working with our me360 health and fitness coaching team.
