Important COVID-19 Information
In March of this 2020, our world was turned upside down by the coronavirus (COVID-19). This pandemic closed schools and businesses, and forced all of us to change most every aspect of life. Shopping, dining, fitness, and recreation have all been impacted by this.
Naturally, COVID-19 force us to change the way we do martial arts training at Sustaire's ATA. The same week that schools here in Collin County closed down, we also temporarily closed our doors to students, and pivoted to an online-only model.
In-Person Training Procedures - Updated for May, 2021
Both our Allen and McKinney schools are open for in-person learning, with strict health and safety guidelines in place. To make our martial arts environment as safe as possible, we have implemented the following safeguards:
Once inside the building, each student and spectator will be provided with hand sanitizer.
We practice social distancing during class by spreading out students during bow-in, physical training, and forms.
The entire school is fully cleaned at the end of each day. This includes the entire competition floor, every upright bag and dummy, restrooms, and common surfaces.
Because students are wearing masks, we will be offered frequent "air and water breaks". A designated staff member will let students outside for each break, during which they may remove their masks and catch their breath, get a drink of water, etc. Students must be masked before re-entering, and will be given hand sanitizer again on the way back in.
For students and spectators who choose to join us for in-person learning, we ask that you remember and abide by the following guidelines:
Everyone who enters the building - including instructors, students, and spectators - must wear a mask the entire time they are in the building. This is a mandatory precaution to ensure the health and safety of everyone in our facility. If you happen to forget your mask, we do have a limited number of masks available at the front desk.
As always, thanks for your patience during this "new normal". If you have questions about these changes, just let us know.
