Protecting Your Health

Your health and wellbeing are our number one priority.

As a registered COVID Safe business, we are committed to protecting our community by providing healthy and hygienic training environments across all Academy training locations.

We've sought to exceed the best practices prescribed by the NSW Government and NSW Health so that you may continue to safely and confidently enjoy the benefits of hands-on training with us.

In support of this commitment, we have implemented the following:

Increased Cleaning Measures

We clean and disinfect our equipment and training environment with hospital-grade disinfectant at least once a day.

Provision of Hand Sanitiser and Soap

Alcohol-based hand sanitiser, as well as soap and hand-washing facilities, are available to all members at Sydney HQ and our NSW Branches.

Compulsory Hand and Arm Wash Protocol

We require all students to thoroughly wash their hands and arms up to the elbows before each class. We've directed our trainers to ensure that all students follow this protocol without exception.

We also recommend that students do the same after each class.

Precautionary Suspension Letters

We have reminded all members that those who show signs or symptoms of illness must refrain from training until they have received clearance from their GPs.

We will serve a Precautionary Suspension letter to anyone who shows signs or symptoms of illness, which requires them to take leave from training for a minimum of four weeks and until they have fully recovered.

Social Distancing Measures

Our Sydney HQ can safely accommodate up to 20 students per class, which is the maximum number of participants currently allowed by the NSW Government.

17/08/20 Update: Due to some of our busier classes at Sydney HQ approaching the 20 student limit, we now recommend that you book your classes in advance. This applies to Sydney HQ students only.

Our NSW Branches are also able to accommodate full classes without the risk of breaching social distancing requirements.

In line with advice received from the NSW Office of Sport and Sport Australia, we are allowed to conduct hands-on training. We require students to train with the same partner for the entirety of the class and to maintain a 1.5-metre distance from other pairs of students.

COVID Safety Plan

We've developed a thorough COVID-19 Safety Plan that complies with the NSW Government's directions on:

  • hygiene and safety
  • physical distancing
  • recording contact details of staff and customers
  • staff wellbeing.

We also recommend that all members download and utilise the Australian Government's COVIDSafe app.

 

Regular exercise, nutrition and sleep are critical for maintaining healthy immune function. We encourage you to continue your training with us while taking sensible precautions to protect your health and that of those around you.

We will continue to monitor guidelines and advice posted by the Federal and State Governments.

We are proud to be Australia's first carbon neutral martial arts organisation
