What`s Happening at / TMA Labor Day Hours & Sales

Hello Everyone,

Happy September! We hope everyone is doing well and getting back into the swing of school and extra circulars, all of us here at Tactical Martial Arts are definitely  ready for some cooler weather! All is well here at Tactical Martial Art, classes are back to normal in house and we are still offering our virtual class options via Facebook live as well. Our July Taekwondo and Krav Maga testings were of great success and we are currently gearing up for our next Taekwondo testing on September 26th, as always, there are no Taekwondo or Krav Maga classes on testing days! We do currently have open enrollment for our next testing cycle starting September 28th. All Krav Maga and Taekwondo students are on the Fall 2020 schedule as of August 3rd, so please advise to those who have been absent for some time. The current Taekwondo schedule is Monday through Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings, times vary depending on age and rank. Krav Maga classes are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings as well. Please speak with a staff member for your class time if you are unsure.

This past weekend we hosted our 2020 Black Belt Camp, where we hosted fellow ATA students for a fun weekend of training. This year was different than years to say the least. In years past, camp is typically  limited to Black Belts ages 13 and up,  as well as the fact that we traditionally host camp in Tallulah Falls, GA , where we spend the weekend camping, hiking and participating in various water activities in our down time. This year, we skipped the camping part, cut out the “fun time” and got down to the knitty gritty of training, which was still an absolute blast as participants got to learn new drills, perfect their techniques and evolve their self defense skills to a whole new level. Everyone was awesome in abiding to the CDC guidelines in regards to social distancing and other safety protocols, by them doing so, Black Belt Camp was smooth sailing and for that we thank you!

 

With classes being cancelled Saturday, August 29th for Black Belt Camp, we will be holding classes THIS Saturday, September 5th. The only day we will be closed for the holiday will be Monday, September 7th. We will reopen for business Tuesday, September 8th with regular business hours. If you need to reach a staff member during the time that we are closed, please send an email to Droegesata@gmail.com and someone will get back with you as soon as possible.

What`s Happening @ Tactical Martial Arts

Hello Everyone!

We hope everyone is doing well during this challenging time, but this too shall pass! We just wanted to get everyone up to date on what is going on here at the school and our current “game plan”.

CLASSES

We have been teaching classes virtually since mid March and after much trial and error, we have began using Zoom vs. Facebook Live and You Tube. Reason being, is that with Zoom, we do not experience the delays and sometimes  getting booted offline as we did with the lives, which was becoming rather problematic for all of us, especially the students trying to learn new material. Also, with Zoom, if you are not able to get onto the class at that time, we can send out a recording of the meetings, so sort of like with You Tube, you can watch it on your own time. Best of both worlds right? We currently have a schedule of teaching virtual classes Tuesday- Thursday, classes are broken down like they are on our regular schedule. We have Tiny Tigers, Karate For Kids, Adult Taekwondo and Krav Maga offered during various times throughout the day.

 

On the week of April 27th, we began allowing up to six students to attend in house classes here at Tactical Martial Arts during various class times as well. We are using extreme caution by social distancing and continuing to thoroughly sanitize all surfaces prior, during and after every class. As well as  checking temperatures of every individual that enters the building and making sure students are sanitizing their equipment prior to each class. We are also offering private lessons where students can either come into the facility prior to classes or virtually and work individually with an instructor, this is proving to be successful as well.

 

We plan to continue offering all three class options (virtual, in facility and private lessons) until at least the beginning of June. We will send out updates are changes occur.

 

We are currently sending out the links for both in facility and virtual classes to all students on Wednesday the week prior to the classes.

Example, today is 5/6/2020, we just emailed the links for the week of May 11.

 

Unsure about joining us? Register NOW for a 5 Class Trial for JUST $25.00. This is valid for Tiny Tigers, Karate for Kids, Adult Taekwondo and Krav Maga programs!

Offer Valid Through May 15th
