ANSWERING THE CALL
First off, I want to thank you for your support of the school in these trying times. We want to thank the you, student body for your understanding it was a hard decision to make and not one that we take lightly. We are three days into the school closure, and while we are bound to our restrictions, we (you and I) are not sleeping. We are preparing.
It is said that success happens when preparation and opportunity meet. While we are off the mat it is a great opportunity to take a deep look into ourselves and figure out how we can sharpen parts of our toolbox that require them.
We have received some very supportive messages from our announcement from last Sunday. For those who reached out, thank you. We are working hard to explore our options and diligently addressing the needs of our students in a case by case basis. Our goal remains the same: community oriented and student centered.
As for training, nothing changes. We have no excuses we either sharpen the body, or we sharpen the mind. Enclosed in this blog post is a video of myself inviting you to join me in a real time workout. Kick my butt while I kick my own butt and watch and laugh at me suffer.
I would like to provide an alternative for training credit. If you record yourself doing any kind of training at home, send it to me and I will make it an equivalent of one training class hour. Use any reference material from our YouTube online channel (workout, technique work, etc. ) or just simply you doing your workout at your home gym or living room.
Do what is hard today, do the impossible tomorrow.
