New measures were announced 13 oktober 2020 during the press conference.

We are happy we can continue to work on our physical and mental health!

In short, for the adults the new mesures will mean that we are allowed to train without contact with each other for a period of 4 weeks at a distance of one and a half meters from each other. Together we will make the best out of it.

The Kidsafety and the Krav Maga for teens classes remain unchanged with contact.

We can keep on seeing each other. Improving our level of fitness, Strength, muscle memory, footwork and Krav Maga techniques.

Training without contact will take some getting used to in the next 4 weeks, we are happy that we can continue to see each other, and can continue to improve our fitness, strength and muscle memory.

We will make the lessons functional so that we are in top shape physically and mentally for the moment we can train with contact again.

Unless circumstances change, adult classes will continue according to our regular schedule

A maximum of 20 adults can participate in the lesson (RIVM sets a maximum of 30). Distance is easy to guarantee at the IJburg and Zuidoost locations. In East we are investigating what the maximum capacity is and if necessary adjust it to less than 20 people.
– Before class, wash your hands with soap and water, if not available, use disinfectant gel.
– After the lesson please clean any materials used
