I hope that everyone has had a quiet and productive fortnight and a wonderful long weekend. With school back this week , I would like to just set a few reminders for everyone at the Club
- With the mini-heat wave on us, it is timely to think about self care during training. Make sure that you are properly hydrated before and during class. Bring a water bottle that you can leave at the edge of the training zone, and listen to the feedback your body is giving you. If you need to take a break, there is no shame it it.
- If you are training in a class that uses the mats, please bring along a some footwear that can be easily slipped on, and use them every time you duck outside or go to the toilet. We need to keep the mat as clean and hygienic as possible.
- Be on time for your classes. Because we have to work with the broader school community, including Extend After School Care, we have a duty to be ready to start at the appropriate time.
- Take pride in the dojo space, including the store room. There are always jobs that need to be done, such as a quick sweep of the floor and setting up the mats. Other jobs might also need to be done such as a quick tidy of the MEAC hall or storage area. These tasks are everyone's responsibility. If you use something from the storage area, be it a uniform or piece of training equipment, you must put it back tidily in the correct spot.
I'm looking forward to seeing everybody back at training this week. Gambatte!
