July Class Updates: In-person Outdoor, Continued Online, & Class Fees
Greetings from Sifu Genie and the Administrative Team! We are pleased to announce changes for July! In-person outdoor classes begin as of July 6th! These are being held at the Academy, and there is also an option through the City of Novi Parks & Recreation Department. Safety protocols and social distancing have been implemented for everyone's health and safety.
We are continuing online classes for those who are not yet comfortable or able to train in-person.
We are also reinstating class fees. both in-person and online. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has generously supported Sifu Genie and the Academy during our closure. This includes continuing your enthusiasm and commitment to training Wu Style, as well as for contributions received from those who were able to do so.
We continue to approach in-person training with cautious optimism while monitoring Michigan’s reopening plans. Please continue to follow safety protocols, wear your masks, and observe social distancing. We must all do our part to contain the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and to keep each other as safe and healthy as possible.
