Covid Update-Muay Thai Return To Play
Really positive news in that my sanctioning organization The British Martial Arts and Boxing Association (BMABA) have secured a interim Return to Play for unpresented martial arts. Based on WAKO Kickboxing's RtP, Muay Thai and other Martial Arts without a Sport England approved NGB can now recommence training at Phase 1 in line with the government Contact Combat Sport Framework.
The following Medium Risk and High Risk Activities can be performed during phase 1:
• Pad Work (PPE) – indoors
• Partnered Training Drills
• Pad Work (No PPE) – outdoors
My sessions continue to take place outdoors to reduce the risk of Covid and PPE will still be used if a client requests it or I am working with an at risk client. All other prescreening, cleaning and hygiene measures will remain in place as standard.
I would hope to expect a return to clinching and free sparring by the next easing of restrictions on May 17th. I'll keep you posted.
