Dear Auckland Students and Parents,
As you’d no doubt be aware, the recent announcement of Stage 3 restrictions has meant that we’ve had to temporarily halt our classes again in Auckland. We were unsure initially if this closure was only for a few days, but it was confirmed on Friday 14th August that it will now extend until at least Wednesday 26th August. Hopefully the authorities have caught the outbreak early and we’ll be back to our normal routines again very soon.
In the meantime, please be assured that we will be placing ALL ACTIVE direct debit training fee accounts back into suspension for the duration of the closure.
Because the announcement extending the lockdown was made after close of business on Friday, we had to wait until Monday morning to initiate the direct debit suspensions through our provider (Debit Success). They have advised there is a 48 hour turnaround period to activate this bulk request, so all accounts should have their suspensions finalised by this Wednesday 19th August.
We apologise if your account is/has been debited since classes closed last week, but please be assured your payments will be adjusted accordingly once we re-open to acknowledge the period of closure.
Until then, we will resume our full weekly timetable of LIVE ONLINE ZOOM classes. Whether you’ve attended some of our LIVE Zoom classes before or not, we’ve got some great news…..
OUR LIVE ZOOM CLASSES WILL NOW BE FREE TO ATTEND FOR ALL AUCKLAND STUDENTS!
All impacted students should have received an email with information on how to access these Zoom classes. If you have not yet received this email, please contact us.
DON’T LET THE LOCKDOWN BREAK UP YOUR ROUTINE – KEEP YOUR BODY MOVING AND YOUR MIND STRONG
Aside from the above, our GKR Karate Online Dojo is still packed full of fantastic on-demand training videos, so please continue using this site as much as you can if you have access.
We’ll be back in touch with you again next week, hopefully with some good news about our dojos re-opening! Until then, we hope to see you on our Zoom classes this week.
Thank you again for your support.
