We are still in Phase 2!
It is good to see some forward progress with the Forward Dane Re-Opening!
But, This doesn’t mean that we should let our guard down. Check out the guidelines for the next phase.
Here is a link to our current order.
As we move towards fully opening we want to still be deliberate on our next steps.
Keep your eyes open for more information and options for in-person classes.
As always, we are humbled and thankful for your patience and support.
In talking to a lot of our students, one of the things that we are missing the most is the feel of clicking sticks and the sound of smacking pads. Although, we are not quite fully able to go back to the way things were. We are able to take another small step in the direction.
Starting on July 6th, we will be adding opportunities to accommodate partner work. This will still be with some big limitations. You and your partner will have to be cohabitating (living together) or you and another person have decided to be dedicated partners (you will not be able to have another partner). This means that during classes you will not hear me say, “Same Drill, New Partner!” or “Introduce yourself, My Name is . . . ” There will still be classes that are friendly for solo work and we will continue to live stream all of our classes on Zoom.
Also to make everyone feel safer we will be holding in-person classes outside in the parking lot as much as the weather will allow. There will also be clearly marked out physical distancing parameters.
I will have more information and schedule changes coming up this week!
To prepare for that update (and honestly get a much-needed break) during the week of June 29th – July 5th there will be NO MKG Madison lead classes (Online or In-person).
This will allow us to get a short break and get prepared before we take that next step.
There will still be plenty of classes on the MKG University during the week so you will still be able to get your training in. So, make sure you get to class.
Thank you for understanding as we prepare for our next step in getting everyone back to class.
