Hello Rich thank you for your time
How does the Covid 19 situation affect you and how do you deal with it?
In the UK we are in 24/7 lockdown. We have had to close the gym and stop all classes.
Many have adjusted their training, how did you attune your activities?
We have moved all our fitness and striking classes online. All grappling/wrestling classes have stopped until further notice.
What’s you view on the virus, how should we continue?
Keep following government and medical guidelines and let’s squash this so we can move on.
This isn’t survival of the fittest, its survival of the most adaptable. We need to adapt.
What is your day in self-isolation like?
Morning fitness classes, homeschooling my kids, teaching 2 classes at night time then putting my boys to bed.
What does this hiatus from competition mean to you?
Its having a major effect on our business but staying safe n healthy is more important than making money.
Still, it seems that some don’t take the situation seriously enough?
Stay at home. Stay safe. Look after your health. Take this seriously as it’s easy to be a carrier and kill your elderly loved ones.
Any message to our readers?
Wishing all my friends from Slovenija, Croatia, Hungary, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Serbia and all through the whole region and stay safe. The whole Chokdee Academy family wish you well, and when we are through these difficult, uncertain times I’d love to come over and teach a few seminars for you guys and share my knowledge.
Much love and respect from the UK
Thank you for this conversation and good luck.
