Phased reopening of Wing Tsun Arizona

Wing Tsun Arizona will start in-person classes on Labor Day week. The government agency dealing with this (see below) is permitting 25% capacity to gyms. The scheduler limits attendance and is pay-by-the-class*. The one and only class for the next two weeks will be Wednesdays at 7:00 – 7:45 pm. These classes and future classes during this pandemic will operate with temperature checks at the door, six-foot social distancing, upping the ventilation, and masks. There will be no contact drills such as chi sau or lat sau at these classes for now. We hope that the county and the state can keep safe and maintain and improve to the “minimal” stage at least, soon.

The class will be great way to keep in shape, stay sharp, maintain muscle memory for Wing Tsun techniques.

Group lesson enrollment:

Trial lessons for new students and continuing private training will continue to be virtual, online. See https://www.wingtsunaz.com/trial-lesson/ for enrollment.

 

 

The state agency, Arizona Department of Health Services is now the department that determines business closures due to COVID-19. Last week the agency issued an OK to open for certain businesses such as gyms on a limited basis. Gyms are at 25% capacity. Maricopa county is in the “moderate” range for COVID-19 community spread. Businesses have had to sign an “Attestation” to affirm that they are following the rules.

We check the COVID-19 Arizona infection rate often with the Arizona Department of Health Services web site.
When we open, we will have a few procedures in place.
Since early this month, some trends are downward.
Since Arizona just started weekend-only mass testing a short while ago, the statistics from the news media are confusing. Sometimes their fine print is clarifying. The AZDHC site is a better reference.

  • One is social distancing – six feet.
  • We will have the optional use of masks.
  • Another is the use of additional fans at one end of the training area.
  • We will be taking no-touch temperatures for new students and one time only for people starting back.
  • We will have a no-touch policy for this phase of re-opening with areas marked off for a student limit of seven people on the floor. There will be no sticky hands or fighting drills at first that involve a partner. Solo drills only.

Thank you,

      Most schools are taking steps to ward off any possible illness with antiseptic wipes, hand-sanitizers, sprays, and attention to simple measures like cleaning door knobs, handles, faucets, etc. We cannot know if a student has picked up a virus on a surface and so I have asked my students to use the hand-sanitizer at the entrance when you come into the school on your arms and hands. There is also one on my desk and another in the rest room. We have and use the antiseptic wipes to clean surfaces, doorknobs, etc. We need everybody’s help. even guests. Thank you for your attention!

Our Wing Tsun self-defense martial art system, a Wing Chun teaching method, is the most effective and efficient system, having been an off-shoot of the more complicated Shaolin martial arts. Our Grandmaster, Leung Ting, was a closed-door student of late grandmaster Yip Man.

We are part of a network of Wing Chun schools spanning the globe as part of the IWTA based in Hong Kong.
