Kicking through Covid

Throughout lockdown, Excalibur Martial Arts and Junior Dragons students haven’t missed a beat, with free online classes three times a week to keep up fitness and flexibility as well as on demand access to additional workouts, seminars and classes.  With their team of Assistant Instructors, the clubs have also been able to run free outdoor sessions in ‘bubbles’ twice a week.  Classes have been restructured to be non-contact, whilst still maintaining the excellent training and skills needed to be regularly practiced by martial artists.

The clubs have recently been awarded the Safeguarding Code In Martial Arts and UK Coaching’s Duty To Care badge, highlighting their on-going commitment to diversity, safeguarding, wellbeing, mental health and inclusion.  In addition to  regular classes, the clubs have held online social events ranging from virtual coffee mornings to quizzes, to maintain the sense of community that they are well known for.

“We have everything in place ready for a speedy re-start to indoor classes at Bridgnorth Leisure Centre,” Chief Instructor, Seamus McGinley said, “and we’ve had a lot of enquiries asking when we’re taking on new students, which is great.  Classes will look a little different when we start indoor training again, but we thoroughly look forward to welcoming everyone.”
