Dear Members & Friends,
I hope that all of you are healthy and doing well during these difficult times. I understand that it has been several weeks since our last update via WhatsApp, so I wanted to take a moment and write to you now.
As COVID-19 cases continue to rise exponentially in Miami-Dade County and across the state of Florida (despite new social distancing rules and regulations), I have decided that it would not be prudent to reopen at this time. As some of you may know, lockdowns have been reinstated across several industries and reopening postponed. I have also received a message from the All United States Kendo Federation strongly advising against the resumption of practice at this time for our region.
I will be monitoring the pandemic closely and making a determination on August 1st as to when training will resume. In the meantime, we must remain patient and do our best to train at home and stay healthy.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
