Parkside Self Defense Coronavirus Advisory

To Parkside Self Defense Students and Parents

Based on the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus in Oregon, we feel it necessary to check in with our students and parents. As you know, this is a fluid situation and we are monitoring it closely.

SUSPENSION OF REGULAR CLASSES: Safety of our students is a top priority at Parkside Self Defense, therefore, we have decided our best course of action is to suspend regular training classes until March 31st. At that time we will make a new determination on the best way to proceed.

OPEN GYM SESSIONS: Presently we will have an instructor available for open gym Monday – Friday from 3 PM to 5 PM. Anyone who is feeling well may attend these open gym sessions to practice and receive instruction. In line with government recommendations that people stay home if they are sick during this time, we are requesting that students not come into school if you have flu-like or respiratory symptoms (fever, coughing, or shortness of breath).

We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time. Watch our Facebook page for more announcements. Please contact us if you have any questions.
