WHAT CAN YOU DO ?
There are many things you can do as an individual to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Additionally, there are things you can do to raise the level of awareness on this virus, reduce unnecessary fear, and create a level of engagement directed at the prevention of the illness with those closest to you.
BE SMART – Stay informed, be aware of risks, but don’t panic. Use the discipline you learned in Jiu-Jitsu to create enhanced personal hygiene routines in your life. Wash your hands frequently, wash your uniform, and take a shower after practice, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
STAY HEALTHY – This is a crucial time to make your health a priority and do all you can to boost your immunity. This means eat well, sleep well, consider taking additional supplements to boost your immunity systems, and of course, keep training what ever way you can !
TRAINING HYGIENE – To protect yourself and your training partners, make sure to sanitise your hands when entering the the academy before shaking anyone’s hands or touching anything. Instructors and staff will require all students to sanitise their hands before class.
BE A GOOD TEAMMATE – If you are feeling under the weather, if you are coughing or sneezing, if you have a mild fever, headache, or any other cold / flu-like symptoms, take a break from Jiu-Jitsu. Stay home, rest, eat well, see doctor & get a covid 19 test before coming back to training.
