Side Kick Tutorial - COVID-19 update

Greetings Poteet Posse! Please check out our Posse Facebook page to view a tutorial short video over side piercing kick aka Yop Cha Jirugi. We know the majority of you are staying home to avoid COVID-19. We are a family and are here to support each other. We hope these daily videos give you all something to do to stay actively training. The videos will be over many aspects, as we know TKD is! We will include kicking, patterns, stances, fundamental movements and knowledge, all of which can be worked on at home! We would love to see your videos of you practicing so please share! For those of you who are still coming in Monday - Thursday, at 5 pm the floor is open for those wanting to get a cardio workout in such as shadow boxing, kicking, agility ladder, etc.. No hand held equipment is available for use. At 6 pm the floor is open for those wanting to work on your TKD fundamentals such as stances, fundamental movements, and patterns. With the size of our training floor (over 4,000 sq feet) there is more than enough room for everyone who is there to be 6-8 feet apart. There will be instructors there to answer questions but there will be no contact including hand shakes, step-sparring, or sparring. The large roll doors will be open as well to give a great outdoor training feeling. We will be watching the floor class size to make sure we are not exceeding 10 people in attendance. We are cleaning and sanitizing daily and have hand soap and hand sanitizer readily available to all.

Here is what was posted yesterday on the American Red Cross:

The American Red Cross is closely monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and following the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

We know this is a stressful time and people want to know what they can do right now to protect themselves and their families. That’s why the Red Cross is highlighting some everyday steps that people in the U.S. can take now. In addition, stay informed about what’s happening in your local community and always follow the directions of state and local authorities.


The Red Cross recommends the following steps to help prevent the spread of germs during this situation:

Stay home if you can and avoid gatherings of more than ten people.
Practice social distancing by keeping a distance of about six feet from others if you must go out in public.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; throw used tissues in the trash. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow or sleeve, not your hands.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, computers, phones, keyboards, sinks, toilets, faucets and countertops.
If surfaces are dirty, clean them - use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection. Full information on how to disinfect found here.
Wear a facemask if you are sick. You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office.

According to the CDC, COVID-19 symptoms include fever, shortness of breath and a cough. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure. Call your doctor for medical advice if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop symptoms.
