We will be back to normal hours and open for class on Tuesday, Sept. 7.
As much as we’ve been hoping not to have to make any changes, with the recent upsurge in COVID cases, the CDC is now recommending that all individuals wear a mask while indoors, regardless of vaccination status. To protect the safety of our students, staff, and families, as well as our ability to continue offering our current classes and programs, we’ll be following these recommendations and will require all students, staff, and visitors to wear a mask while in the MPK building, beginning Monday, August 9, regardless of vaccination status.
We’re hopeful that this is for the short term, and we plan to reassess the situation within a couple of weeks. This isn’t the announcement we’d hoped to make, but we’re experienced with karate in masks, and we’ve proven we can make it work. There are no other changes at this point — it’s our plan to continue offering the same great classes on our current schedule.
As always, if students or families are experiencing symptoms of any sort, please stay home until you’re symptom-free and, if you’ve had any exposure to COVID at all, please remain home until you’re certain you’re negative for the virus. We’ll continue to keep you updated as any changes come up.
Thanks for your patience and for taking the necessary steps to protect everyone in the MPK family.
As you’ve probably heard, we’re finally bringing back sparring classes!
- Sparring for ages 9 and under will be on Wednesdays from 5:00 to 5:30.
- Sparring for ages 10 and up will be on Wednesdays from 6:15 to 6:55.
Students are eligible to participate in sparring once they reach gold belt. There’s no additional tuition fee for sparring classes, though students will need their own gear.
Sparring is an optional part of our curriculum until students reach blue belt and prepare to test for red belt. It’s a lot of fun and it’s a great workout, so it never hurts to start earlier!
If you weren’t able to make it to our Intro to Sparring session last week, please feel free to drop in and observe sparring class and ask questions — we’re happy to help.
Please let us know if you have any questions, and we look forward to seeing you!
This is just a quick reminder that we will be closed on Saturday, July 3, for the Fourth of July holiday weekend. We won’t have kickboxing class or stripe testing that day.
We will be back on Monday, July 5, for summer camp and evening classes.
