Due to the current Covid 19 numbers the trainers and board have evaluated the current way we train and come to the following decision:
We will pause the Long Sword practices for the following two weeks to start with. That means that the practices on the 18th and 25th of January are canceled. This pause might be extended if the numbers for the spread of Covid 19 does not go down.
The Jogo do Pau and Sword and Buckler practices are not included in this pause at this time.
The reasoning for pausing the Long Sword and not the other two comes down to the amount of members that share the space that we have available. The lower number of members that practice Jogo do Pau and Sword and Buckler makes it much easier to stay safe.
It is very important that each and every one of us takes our responsibility serious now and that we stay at home of we feel unwell and that we do what we can to stay safe during practices.
