After getting trying a plank challenge for a number of weeks (2 of them can hold plank for over 9 minutes!) CEO Sam Zheng decided to do something different so he put it to the team and they were up for the challenge.
Over the next 10 weeks they will be learning taekwondo basics and some techniques to help them during the course of their lives.

Australian Taekwondo has grouped together with a range of other sports bodies and is lobbying the Government to allow dojangs to open.
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).
