UPDATE: Re-opening Wed, 1/18

Dear JPMAA Members:

Good news! The cleaning crew came back and checked the walls, and said we’re good to go! We’re spending Tuesday afternoon putting the school back together and cleaning.

We will reopen for classes on Wednesday, January 18:
4:30 Kids Karate
5:30 Kobudo
6:30 Adult / Advanced Karate

We invite all of our members to come in for a few extra classes to make up classes missed while we have been closed.

And – Yoga with Rita returns this Saturday 1/21 at 9:30! Free for members, $10 drop-in for non-members.

Thanks to everyone for your patience and your continued support.

***************

A burst pipe in the business next door has caused flooding in our space and we have to CLOSE this week, from (today) Tuesday 1/10 through the completion of the cleanup.

If all looks good, hopefully we can reopen as soon as Wednesday 1/18 or Thursday 1/19.

A significant amount of water got under several of the mats – fortunately they are fine. David and Lucy went in this morning and moved all equipment and mats out of the way in order for the crew to come in with wet vacs and fans. We have been told by JPNDC that this may take some time to completely dry out the affected areas.

We apologize for the inconvenience, especially since we are really just getting back to training after the holiday. As always, please feel free to make up classes / take any extra classes to make up for what you miss.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We will keep you updated!

Fall 2022 schedule and other updates

Greetings, JPMAA Members!

We hope everyone has had a wonderful summer. It is September, and as we are approach the start of school, here are a few things to know:

  1. FALL SCHEDULE
    Our Fall schedule of classes can be found below. The schedule takes effect on Sept. 6th!

** The schedule remains essentially the same; there is a minor change on Wednesdays for our kids and adult Karate students. Kids Karate on Wednesday is at 4:30, and Kobudo is at 5:30. We’ve made this change so that our teen and adult karate students who want to can come to the kobudo class. Kobudo will be a mixed age-level class.
Wednesdays:
4:30 – Kids karate
5:30 – Kobudo (all ages, Yellow belt & above)
6:30 – Adult/ Advanced Karate

** Yoga With Rita will be back beginning Saturday, September 10 at 9:30. Remember that this is a free / bonus class open to all members!

  1. FEE INCREASE
    Earlier this summer we sent a letter announcing a fee increase this Fall. Because we were closed for two weeks in August, we have delayed this increase for current members until OCTOBER.

Please reach out to us with any concerns or questions about this.

  1. MEMBERSHIP HOLDS / ReStarting your account
    If your membership is currently on HOLD, you may stop by the front desk or send us an email to reactivate it when you return. We will not reactivate any membership payments until we hear from you!

We hope everyone has had a wonderful, fun and healthy summer!
