Weekly MUKC update – Winter break 1

Physical training IS BACK!!!

Monash Sport has properly reopened their doors once again! Training is resuming at the normal times (not the weird 5pm – 7pm)! Please read through the PPE guideline attached in this email before attending training so you can understand what’s required! (“210627 Covid Risk Control and PPE requirement – MUKC.xlsx”)

To beginners, please be ready by 5:45pm so we can show you how to wear your hakama & gi (and watch the video below if you get the chance). If you will be late, please let Toney know so he can help you get your bogu out. Or if you can’t attend Monday’s training, let Toney know and we can help you out on Wednesday 🙂

Please remember to bring your mask, face shield and phone (to scan the QR code).

Note: Please check “This week’s trainings/events” for info about training times/locations.
