Dear Members of NOX Dojo,
During these difficult times, I pray for your good health and for the ones you love. For those who know victims of this virus my heart truly goes out you. It has not been easy for us.
Last month, it was my hope that our national response to this global pandemic would last 2 months at the most. Sadly, it has become evident that our state of emergency will last much longer. Because of this, the dojo is at a crossroads since it still has its obligations to the landlord. Yesterday, we heard from Prime Minister Trudeau that they are in talks with the provinces in order to come up with solutions regarding rent relief for small businesses like NOX Dojo. It is likely that there might be partial relief. Realistically, I can’t expect 100% rent relief for every business in Canada for 4 months. Therefore, for the survival of the dojo starting May 1st, 2020, there is no choice but to charge for online classes at a reduced rate.
Over the next week or so, NOX Dojo will slowly implement a full 3 month online program. It will include specific goal setting strategies, belt testings, along with our usual technical curriculum. We will be incorporating the blog at NOXDojo.com, YouTube, Zoom, WhatsApp, and other platforms as a part of the lesson plans.
If you are not getting emails, please contact us and we will add you to our mailing list.
