Dear GIANT Martial Artist,
The premier has announced that lockdown will continue till Thursday 30th September 2021. We are here to help you keep BUSY with physical fitness and healthy tips during this difficult time. Whilst it is difficult to connect to the academy physically, we CAN connect mentally.
We THANK AGAIN all members who are keeping up their training at Live classes. This has kept students in touch with their martial arts and more importantly "FRIENDSHIPS".
Even though time in lockdown may seem like a lifetime, we have BEATEN THIS BEFORE (last lockdown was March to June 2020) and will BEAT IT AGAIN and come back stronger each time.
In summary we are providing:
1) 18 live class sessions 3 x per week
2) A video library of all your techniques via an easy to use App and Online University
3) Free use of gym equipment to use at home for Live classes
4) Personal training via zoom or in the park within restriction limits
5) Social Zoom sessions for Kids, Teens and Adults where we play games, trivia and have plenty of laughs
