On Thursday 7th May we're lucky to be joined by Master Julien Le, 19 time French National Champion, 2 time Bronze Medalist at the World Championships and 2 time European Champion.
Master Le will be taking us through poomsae training and will be answering questions giving us some insights from his experiences being a top competitor over many many years!
Over the next 10 weeks they will be learning taekwondo basics and some techniques to help them during the course of their lives.
CuriousThing is an innovative Australian start up which automates the phone interview process then uses natural language processing (text analysis), knowledge graph and deep transfer learning to provide individual and cohort analysis.
Curious Thing’s mission is to empower companies to go beyond resumes, and make 6 billion good and fair decisions.
Some of our school halls (e.g. Manly Village Public School) have already cancelled term 2 for community users like us. But the mood is more positive and there are hints of lock down being lifted. So if we can open it is likely to be a phased opening.
We are conscious that being able to open isn't going to be a free for all.
The virus is still out there and there is still no treatment or vaccine.
Being able to open again is likely to bring us back to mid-Feb/early March where some students will still prefer to stay home and we will have to implement restricted, no contact and limited capacity training in person. At this stage we will also continue to run the online classes.
We will need to hear what the restrictions are before we have final plans in place.
Things like hand sanitiser and limiting class capacity are manageable.
Other potential items like cleaning the dojang every x hours are not so manageable (it takes me about an hour to vacuum and wash the mats and another 2 hours for them to dry).
