Poolesville Self Defense Family,

We are committed to the health and safety of all of our students and your families. We also want to be part of the solution in helping reduce the spread of the virus so we can create the safest training environment and best outcome for our community as possible.

Effective Saturday March 14, we will be cancelling all classes until Montgomery County schools reopen on Monday March 30.

We did not make this decision quickly, and we have and will continue to monitor the latest news about this virus. We can resume to normal operating at any time during this, so please know we will actively remain on top of the latest information so we can reopen.

We are asking you to be part of the solution! We are committed to bringing this to an end and in making sure we can return to a normal training schedule as soon as possible. Here are things you can do to help ensure the best possible outcome:

1. Please Don't Cancel Your Membership: We need your support to help keep our gym open. The reality is that this will be challenging for many of us. If enough people cancel their memberships, there may not be a gym left when this is over.

We will add one month to everyone's membership at the end of their current membership term to make up for the time we are closed.

2. Symptoms = Steer Clear of Others: If you or your child have ANY symptoms, please steer clear of others and consider getting professional attention.

3. Clean Yourself: Wash hands vigorously for at least 20 seconds with soap and water and wash any working clothing right away.

All-Access Gym Members can still access the gym 24 x 7 but should coordinate workout times with the Coaching staff to ensure we keep the number of concurrent individuals working out to a safe number and implement additional procedures to address CDC guidance. Contact Coach Ray or Mark with questions. 

As always, please stay connected to our Facebook page or website for the latest information. We look forward to being part of the solution and getting back to a normal training schedule as quickly as possible!

Thank you,

Coach Mark and Ray
