Fall/Winter Kenpo Karate Schedule 2022

Hi all,

Nanaimo Kenpo Karate classes for the 2022 fall / winter schedule will commence on Wednesday, September 14th, 2022.

Class times, schedule & cost remain the same.

Most health restrictions have been lifted by the province. Masks are optional and proof of vaccination is NO LONGER required.

The expectation for students will be to not attend class should you feel unwell, suspect you are unwell or suspect you’ve been in contact with a COVID 19 positive individual.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Classes Finished for Summer Break

Hi Everyone,

Classes have now concluded for the 2021 / 2022 Winter & Spring Kenpo Karate season. Thanks to all the students who came back after being off for two years due to the COVID -19 pandemic. Health restrictions for our classes were lifted in May and we hope this remains in place for our return in September (ie no more proof of vaccination, distancing, masks etc).

Check back in mid-late August for the September schedule. Alternatively, you can check our Facebook page “Nanaimo Kenpo Karate” for updates.

Have a great summer!

COVID Guidelines for return to class February 16th, 2022.

The following information is for RETURNING STUDENTS ONLY.

NEW STUDENTS will be considered in early March 2022. This time stagger will allow us to determine how classes will run within the guidelines given to us by our landlord (school district 68). As well, it will help us establish our initial “bubble” for club members.

1. PROOF OF VACCINATION IS REQUIRED. The BC Vaccination Card Verifier app will be used upon your initial class. This guideline is set by our landlord, the school district and we have no control over it. We understand this will be a deal breaker some people. We respect everyone’s choice over their personal health and hope this requirement will be gone down the road. That said, it is a requirement for now.

A brief health screening will occur at the beginning of each class upon entry to the building. Those failing the screening will be turned away.

2. Masks must be worn upon entry to the building, in washrooms, in between activity and when exiting the premises.

Masks may be removed during activity at the participants discretion.

3. Please bring a personal sized bottle of hand cleaner with you to class. Additional cleaner will be provided as well as sinks with soap.

4. Please do not attend if you are ill, suspect you’ve had recent contact with COVID-19 or are subject to provincial quarantine. If you are ill, we ask that you stay away for 14 days. We know this may sound extreme given that some isolations are down to 5 days. We will re-examine this later, but for now, 14 days will be the requirement.

It is CRITITCAL that we follow these guidelines as we face permanent termination of our contract with the school board if we are found to be in violation of any of the terms.

Please consider others health and well-being….do not attend if you are sick or suspect you’re becoming sick.

Six-foot markers will be utilized to keep space between us during activities that do not require contact.

The initial weeks will have a fitness, techniques, and kata’s focus to them.  Sparring and self-defence are permitted and will ramp up in following weeks, but for now, we will focus on getting the rust off and learning how to operate within the guidelines.

We don’t expect that we will have too different an experience in class with guidelines in place. We all just need to be diligent for now.

It’s been a long two years and we look forward to training and getting back to normal!!!

2020 / 2021 Kenpo Season Delayed

Hi All!

We hope your summer was enjoyable in spite of the restrictions we’ve had placed on us. We know you are wondering what is happening with the 2020 / 2021 Kenpo Karate Season.

Normally, we would be preparing for classes next week. As of this time, our contract is in place with the school to operate (that was signed back in April).

Being that not much has changed COVID-19 wise, we are waiting to hear now if the school board will allow rental agreements to be fulfilled as scheduled. We should know within the next 2 weeks as they get a handle on what day to day activites in the facility look like.

Once the school board has informed us if classes are green lit, we can then make a final decision on what type of classes we will move foreward with. There is a possibility that we may delay classes to 2021.

We appreciate your patience in the meantime.
