Posted: March 15, 2020

***Updated 1:09PM on Tuesday, March 17th, 2020***

We have decided that the best course of aciton to take at this time is to close temporarily. Classes will be cancelled at Bronx Jiu Jitsu effective March 16th as it would be the best decision to help fight the spread of this horrible virus.  We will continue to take this day by day. We'll be keeping you all informed on what is to come. The Jiu Jitsu comminity needs to stay strong and support each other more than ever at this time. We ask for your continued patience while we navigate through this pandemic. For more information and questions please contact us at info@bronxjiujitsu.com

 

How Bronx Jiu-Jitsu is Preparing For Coronavirus & COVID19

The team at Bronx Jiu-Jitsu is committed to the health and safety of our Members.

We will use this page (as well as communicate via our Facebook Group and Page and E-Mail) to keep you posted.

We are taking this 1 day at a time as this is an unprecedented event that is occurring.

 

PREVENTATIVE MEASURES

Our Team is being very proactive in taking steps towards the health of our students and hygiene in our gym. 

We have hand sanitizer readily available at the academy and antibacterial hand soap in the bathrooms. 

We regularly clean our mats with commercial-grade cleaner and have increased the number of sessions of mat cleanings per day and have also increased deep cleaning sessions per week for the time being.   

We are urging all students, parents and siblings to STAY HOME if you feel sick, even if the symptoms are not consistent with the coronavirus or flu.  This will help the spreading of any and all illnesses.  This is our policy year-round, but we are asking everyone to be especially vigilant during this time.  

 

ONLINE CLASSES

For those who are unable to attend class due to illness or other risk factors, we do have the technology in place to allow for realtime at-home participation, including interaction from your kids’ favorite instructors.

Some students/parents are also choosing to voluntarily quarantine themselves/kids preemptively to limit exposure.

Students will be able to stay on track and get attendance credit by logging in during class time and following along at home and share proof with a picture or video via email at info@bronxjiujitsu.com.

We will be modifying our curriculum so lessons can be practiced solo, or with parents, guardians, siblings, friends, babysitters, etc.

We plan on running regular classes for as long as it’s possible, and if we must cancel class we’ll continue to stream virtual classes to minimize the disruption in your routine and progress.

Online Classes will begin Wednesday, March 18th! 

Simply click the link of your child’s class at the time of their class and your child will be able to take class right along with our Coaches!

If you can’t make the LIVE class, the recording will be posted inside of the Bronx Jiu Jitsu App later on that evening

CLASSES SHORTENED

In attempt to minimize the amount of people in the building at the same time, we will also be cutting our on site classes short by 10 minutes to help keep numbers inside the academy smaller during transitions.

 

FREEZING YOUR PROGRAM

As a courtesy to our members, anytime you miss more than 2 weeks of training, we have always added that missed time to the end of your Program (as long as we are properly notified via email at info@bronxjiujitsu.com).

If you foresee yourself being out for more than 2 weeks, please send us an e-mail (info@bronxjiujitsu.com) requesting a time freeze and we will add your missed time to the end of your Program.

Your monthly payment will still be processed – but you won’t lose your time.

 

CDC PREVENTION STEPS

We are also asking our students to follow the CDC’s prevention steps below to stop the spreading of illnesses.  Specifically:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask (not recommended- see website)
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

LEADERS DON’T PANIC, THEY PREPARE

While we recognize the seriousness of this virus, we also recognize that remaining physically fit is an important way to ensure a healthy immune system.

Further, we believe that in frightening times, it is important for kids to maintain as much consistency as possible, within reason.

Our goal is to employ practices that reduce risk while focusing on educating our students with empathy and compassion so they can balance their emotions with logic and information.

Your children are going to follow your lead.

Make sure it’s one to follow.

Thank you for your cooperation. 

We are hoping that everyone will do their part as we take every measure to keep our Academy a safe and clean environment.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
