Central Karate Update #3

Parents & guardians:

Please know that we did not make this decision lightly. Effective Tuesday, 3/24 we will close until April 13th, in accordance with the Governors latest “shelter at home” proclamation. This means we will no longer have Day Camp. We will continue to offer our Tang Soo Do classes virtually via Facebook Live.

We appreciate everyone’s continued support during this time. As small business owners, it’s an uneasy time for our business and our family.

We will have our last day of camp this Monday, March 23rd, but we will close at 5:00pm, per the Governor’s order. If you do not wish to attend camp Monday, we understand and all “no show” fees will be waived for Monday. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to reach out to us on an individual basis.

We ask that you keep our family, our business, and all small business owners in your thoughts and prayers during this time. Together we will get through this. Stay healthy, stay safe, and take care of your family.

Tang Soo!

Sa Bom Nim Kennedy,
Mrs. Lauren,

Tang Soo!

We hope everyone is doing well, staying safe, and keeping their families well during this time. We know, with the rapid spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) that everyone is experiencing a lot of emotions. Rest assured that all of us at Central Karate are doing everything we can to help our students and the Central Community during this time.

As of Wednesday, we’ve started our virtual classes, which are streaming via Facebook Live from our private Facebook Page. If you need a link to that page, feel free to reach out. We are also still holding Day Camps for parents who need child care and are still working. See the post regarding Day Camp for more info.

At this time we have postponed our March and April events. When we are given permission to resume business as normal, we will reschedule those events. We truly miss each and everyone of you and we hope you are practicing along with us at home. Students are encouraged to post, email, or text us photos and videos of themselves practicing at home. It puts a smile on our instructors faces to know that everyone is still kicking it at home.

If anyone needs anything from us, please feel free to call the do jang or email us at centralkaratela@gmail.com  Messages left on the voicemail at the do jang come directly to our cell phones, so we can access them anytime. You can also reach out to us via remind, but we ask that you please limit early morning, late afternoon, and weekend messages as our staff is trying to rest and recharge during their time off.


Central Karate Update #1

Parents & Students:

In accordance with the Governors recent announcement regarding closures of gyms and fitness facilities, we will suspend our nightly karate classes until Monday, April 13th, at which time we will re-evaluate the situation. We are in the process of finding the best way to transition to VIRTUAL or ONLINE classes so our students can still have the opportunity to train.

We appreciate everyone’s continued support during this difficult time and we appreciate the continued support we hope to continue to receive in the coming weeks. I know this is a trying time for all families, but it is especially stressful for us as small business owners.

We will still offer Day Camps for parents who need a safe environment to send their children. If you need more info regarding Day Camp or anything else, please don’t hesitate to message us or call us at 261-6326.
