Hi Everyone,

To help safeguard against the Swine Flu, have you made changes to any part of training; either as trainer or student?

As trainer, I encourage students to wash hands after the initial greeting in the traditional way before class; to wash hands during our break after the first 45 minutes; and after training.  I am considering dropping the handshake but retaining the bow at the normal distance.  Anyone with cold symptoms must stay away.

Two local schools have been closed for a week.  In another school, half a bus-load of students returning from a class trip to a neighboring country have tested positive and they are not yet allowed back in school.

                                             He conquers who conquers himself.
