Due to the impact of the Coronavirus our way of life and the way we do everyday activities has changed. It is no different with the Martial Arts, we need to adjust to what some may say is the new normal, and due to that we need to provide new options.

We respect the rights of people’s feelings on this subject, and there are many views and feelings out there right now. Some people will want to jump right back into the way things were, some may do it gradually; others may never be comfortable with going back to the norm. In the past lots of people would come view a class and they would look at it as rolling on the ground with someone sweating on me is disgusting, and not for them. One of the things we discovered during this stressful time though was ways to do things a little differently but yet be effective in learning the art form and giving an unbelievable workout.

While providing the virtual classes we learned that the bag drill portion of it was very well received, gave a great cardio workout as well as an unreal core routine. Now you have options, if rolling around on the mat is not for you but you want a challenging workout that will exhaust every muscle group and put you in the best physical shape of your life, these non contact classes are just the thing. Each workout is designed to attack a different body group and can be done by all men and women of all ages.

So even though this COVID pandemic has caused so much disruption to our everyday lives and has changed the way we will forever do business in this industry, there were some things that were discovered during this time. One of the things that we became aware of due to the necessity of having to keep our students engaged, interested and in physical condition during the quarantine, was that virtual classes CAN be effective. 

You will get the argument that in the martial arts realm you need to have physical contact or an instructor in front of you to really learn. You’ll hear it’s not the same, or I don’t have the space, I need someone present to push me…well the virtual option DOES supply all of that and despite what some may think the conditioning piece of the work out and the repetitiveness of the moves on the bag will actually sharpen your game and increase your cardio-shape. It will be one of the best workouts you ever get. Plus the old saying is true “DRILL TO BUILD SKILL”.

Another great option from this is time, what we also learned was some people had time constraints and driving to any academy was not a great option to them, or maybe they felt uncomfortable in the gym environment, or they still had fears about being near people even with social distancing or non-contact drills in place. We acknowledge and respect all of those feelings and think that the Virtual Classes provide an alternate solution to the problem and are still very effective.
