Covid-19 and New Schedule
The time is here Walter Martial Arts Family get back to the do-Chang and train with Master Will! We’d first like to start by thanking all of our Walter Martial Arts TKD family for sticking together through out this difficult time and supporting our school. Congratulations to all of our hard working students and instructors for taking the last few months of online zoom classes. As you all already know we are not 100% ready to start coming back to the do-Chang regularly just yet so we are going to open the school slowly for everyone’s safety.
At this time all students may take class at the do-Chang once a week with Master Will at their assigned time and date for a 45 minute class. We will still be offering 5 days a week of zoom classes at our regular scheduled times throughout the month of June. Saturday’s will be dedicated for belt exams for all our hard working students who have been taking our zoom classes. We are only permitted to have 9 students training at the do-Chang at a time, so Master Will has taken the proper steps to insure all students will have their own training area in the do-Chang 6 feet apart from each other.
We will have strict sanitizing procedures to follow with all students attending class at the school. There will be no contact as of now, so no sparring or BJJ will be permitted. All student must come to class dressed in their uniform and belt and may not bring any equipment or clothing to the do-Chang. All Students must wear socks, plastic gloves, and a face mask while taking class. If a student does not have gloves or a face mask we will supply them with one at the school. Upon arrival to the do-Chang Master Will will be taking everyone's temperature with a no touch electronic thermometer and all students must first sanitize their hands correctly. All parents must also take the proper steps with their child Before they attend class. All Students must shower before attending class and when returning home. Any student that feel ill must remain home and will not be allowed to enter the do-Chang. Parents will not be allowed to stay in the school nor wait in the parking lot due to state restrictions. However, the classes will be available on Zoom if you would like to watch.

Master Will will be sending individual notifications to all parents of the days/times of each students assigned belt exam date, everyone will have to confirm with Master Will to attend their belt exam. To sign up for class, you can easily book them online in the schedule. Students will be able to sign up at 4:00 pm Mondays will be for white and yellow belts. Tuesdays will be for green and blue belts. Wednesdays will be for brown and red belts. Thursdays will be for black belts. Fridays will be for instructors. Saturdays at 11:00 am will be for any student (any age/any rank). The zoom classes will remain the same (Monday-Friday: 5:00-6:00 pm and 6:00-7:00 pm, Saturday 12:00 -1:00 pm and 1:00-2:00 pm).
Hopefully in July we will be able to offer more class times and days to train and we can open the school to normal capacity. We would like to thank everyone for their continued support and understanding that safety of all of our students is our number 1 priority. Please contact Master Will if you have any questions or concerns thank you and be well- Master Will Walter.
