On Friday 8th May the Australian Government annonced the Covid Safe plan for Australia to re-open its economy. What does this means for Gracie Barra Hunter Valley students? ⤵️⤵️
The Australian Gov Covid Safe plan has three steps. Step 1 commences on Friday 15th May, inside gyms cannot open yet. When we get to step 2 of this plan, GBHV will be able to open its doors again to students, but with restrictions. These restrictions will include safety measures like personal distancing, hygiene practices and the number of students we can have in our academy at any one time. Step 3 is even better for us, but we will await to when we get closer to this time to make annoncements.
It will be great to get back on the mats to some face to face classes and get some routine in our lives. Zoom classes will also be run, for those that are unable to get to the academy. Unfortunitly during step 2 there will be No Contact during class, but we all know, a regular fitness routine will not only help our fitness but will improve our mental health. At this stage we are just waiting for the NSW Government officals to release more details and a better time frames, but once we get this details we will be let everyone know. Please be assured, Gracie Barra Hunter Valley has a draft of our Covid Safe plan with policies and procedurees ready for when we get the green ligth to open our doors! Stay tuned....

Over the past week, the concerns related to the Covid-19 outbreak have continued to increase.
The number of cases continues to grow in many regions around the world.
Although the data continues to show that 80% of people will only have minor symptoms, the fast rate of contamination of Covid-19 presents the real possibility of a health care system overload.
Unfortunately, the only proven method to effectively slow down the spread of a virus that has no vaccine is social distancing. The mantra is simple; we all need to do our part to help in "flattening the curve." "Any lessening of spread will help health systems remain functional." - Caitlin Rivers, Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security.
Gracie Barra is a force against the spread of Covid-19. Our top priority is the health and safety of our team members. As a global team, we must also do our part and contribute to "flattening the curve."
However, we will not allow this virus to prevent us from continuing to pursue our mission of bringing Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone. We understand that, especially in times like this, you and your family need Jiu-Jitsu to stay healthy, both physically and mentally.
Starting Saturday 21st March, we will be limiting our school’s activities to GB online and GB Zoom LIVE classes.
We are super excited to bring the Gracie Barra Virtual learning experience to you and your family. We are joining forces with GB Online to provide a wide array of Jiu-Jitsu learning experiences along with using effective digital learning platforms that will include:
