Dear parents and students, 5/1/2020
I hope this email finds you all doing well and staying healthy!
All Zoom Classes (for the month of May) share the same ID & Password:
To access your Child’s zoom class from a computer go to: https://zoom.us then click “join a meeting” after that enter the 10 digit class ID and 6 digit password when prompted.
To access your Child’s zoom class from a tablet or smart phone first download the “zoom cloud meetings” app from the app store. Once you have the app, launch the app, then click “join” and enter the Meeting ID and Password when prompted.
I have separated the Green and Above classes on Monday and Wednesday to make 4 separate classes for Green and Blue belts and Brown Belts and Above. This addition to the schedule will made testing preparation easier and more specific for the students. A copy of the schedule is attached to this email, and can also be referenced on our website and Facebook page.
Colored Belt Testing will be held on Saturday June 13th. Each rank will have its own designated testing time. Additionally starting June 1st there will be additional testing prep zoom classes to ensure students are prepared for testing. I am exploring all options for an Intermediate Black Belt Testing and how that would/could work in a virtual setting. I have not set a date for that yet, because of the many complications behind holding a remote test of that type. A detailed email specific to testing will be sent out in approximately 2 weeks.
It is difficult for me to put into words what your continued support of my small business means. I know that so many of your are struggling right along with me to continue to support your family and navigate these very uncertain times. I have always maintained a strong commitment to my passion, which is providing the very best martial arts instruction possible while making connections with children and their families. For the past 18 years that I have owned East Coast Martial Arts Institute, I have truly enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of your lives and share the martial arts with you. I know that your loyalty to my business demonstrates a loyalty to your own child’s continued success in their Taekwondo training. ‘Thank you’, hardly feels like an adequate expression for your commitment. I promise to maintain my connection to all of my students and families to the very best of my ability. Please accept my sincere gratitude on the behalf of myself, my wife and my children as well as the entire staff of ECMAI.
As a way to express my gratitude I have put together a Loyalty Package for all students who are continuing to support my small business during these trying times. For families who do not freeze their membership, in addition to the 30% discounted tuition that extends 6 months beyond when we re-open in studio.
You will also receive:
-FREE 90 minute East Coast Martial Arts Birthday Party! Valid for any student for 12 calendar months after our re-opening ($250 Value)
-3 Free in center Seminars taught by Mr. Reilly or Staff member ($75+ value)
-ALL Movie Nights Free! Valid for 12 calendar months after our re-opening ($15 savings per movie night)
-Special pricing for All Parents Night Outs ($5 coast). Valid for 12 calendar months after re-opening ($15 savings per PNO)
-20% Discount on all East Coast Martial Arts Institute apparel and Merchandise. Valid for 12 calendar months after re-opening.
Thank you all so much for your continued support as we all work through these troubling times together as one East Coast Martial Arts Institute family. Stay safe and I look forward to interacting with you in our virtual classes!
