Re: Cleanliness and COVID-19

      Our Commitment to You and Your Family During the Coronavirus Outbreak


Dear Students and Family Members,


I personally wanted to reach out and let you know that our entire team at the Ellis academy of self defence considers you a part of our own family and we are doing everything we can to keep you safe during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.


We understand that while in the midst of this outbreak, you are very concerned about the health and safety of yourself and your loved ones.  Because of this, I wanted to let you know of all the safety, cleanliness, and preparatory steps that we take each and every day. These steps are not new for us, they are something that we have always practised.   


Our Instructors and staff are committed to making sure you and your family are always in the safest environment, from our entry rooms to each and every training area. For over 19 years it has been our leading belief that a healthy environment leads to a healthy body and healthy mind. That begins as soon as you step foot into our academy.


So that you can have a deeper understanding of how we do things at the Ellis academy of self defence, I’ve outlined just a few of the steps we take in order to better protect you:


When You Arrive

Cleanliness begins at the front door. Throughout the day, our staff wipes down and disinfects door handles throughout the entire academy, including the one you enter through. We have hand sanitiser dispensers in the waiting room for your convenience before and after your appointment. Our nightly cleaning is thorough, including cleaning the chairs, counters, tables, floors, bathrooms and all training areas throughout the building.


Before, During And After Your Training

Our training gear and training areas are always cleaned and sanitised with the most technologically advanced cleaning agents to diminish bacteria, dirt and dust, and whenever possible, we use disposable tools and cleaning instruments that are fresh and new for each cleaning procedure.


If you’d like to learn more about our cleaning and sanitising processes, you are welcome to contact us at any time.  We take great pride in our efforts to keep you and your family healthy and safe every day. 

Our Instructors and entire team want you to know that we would never compromise any student or our staff, under any circumstance.   Our methods and techniques have worked to keep students healthy for over 19 years and we will continue that tradition, and continually better it, for years to come. 


We are reviewing daily, and operating as normal, below are the current guidelines for educational facilities:
