Hope this finds you and your family in good health.

We are working out the final details in the video link platform on the website. This will allow us to see each other for testing, corrections, checking in, etc. You will find it in the "Members" area. It is not quite ready just yet. We will let you know when we can begin scheduling appointments. As always, please reach out if you have any questions, concerns, or comments.

Thank you. Stay safe. We miss you all.

Hope you and your loved ones are in good health.

Our website is now up and running. It contains videos covering curriculum. We will be adding more in-depth videos to support the curriculum videos, as well as regular “class” videos. We will also provide live, person-to-person video chats to answer questions and assist with making corrections and offering support. This will be your path for testing and advancement until this crisis passes.

We have attempted to contact every student, however, we were unable to reach some of you. Therefore, we are providing an update here for those that we have not been able to reach.

We will be offering discount codes. Please reach out to us to discuss for additional details. If you are having financial difficulties, please let us know and we will help you. We understand many are out of work and lives are impacted, and we will not leave anyone out of our program.

These are unprecedented times. No one knows how long this will last. Although this is not ideal, this is our best and only path forward until the crisis is over. Our number one goal is the safety of everyone, and we will re-open the building when it safe and responsible to do so.

Stay safe and God bless,
Master Sweet and True Balance Martial Arts Staff

We were supposed to have our testing yesterday and had plans to surprise Master Chung with this plaque and heartfelt tribute to his dedication for all he's done throughout the years. Since that wasn't possible, we are sharing it here. Instead, we spoke on the phone with him to express our gratitude. We'd like to reiterate that our testings will move forward. If you have not reached out to us regarding remote testing, please do so. Thank you. Stay safe. God bless. Master Sweet and True Balance Staff. ...

We hope you and your loved ones are doing well both physically and mentally. I don’t know about you, but this past week has felt like a month! With so many things that are out of our control, you should do what is best for you and your loved ones. If that means stepping away for now, we completely understand. If that means continuing to train, we will help you with that.

If you are eligible to test and would like to test this week, please let us know and we will make it happen.

We have compiled videos of the forms and hope to have them available very soon. Our IT engineer is doing an amazing job working around the clock with all the demand for his services. We will be adding additional videos once the platform is up and running.

We will get through this. Stay strong. Stay healthy.

Update Regarding Training

Hope you are all doing well in these unprecedented times. Everything happened so fast, and we're afraid this is our new reality for awhile. We think it's going to be awhile before we can safely train in person.

It seems awkward to discuss this during a crisis. However, we do not want disappoint those who have worked so hard. If you are eligible to test and would like to test, we will test remotely. If you are interested in pursuing your training, we will help you. We are looking for feedback. We can do videos, Zoom, or something similar.

We will overcome this and demonstrate indomitable spirit. This will pass. Testing and sparring are about facing fear; fear will beat your before you've even begun.

As always, please call with any questions, concerns or comments.

I wish you and yours the best in these difficult times.

As of Monday, March 16, 2020 at 3PM, all health clubs have been ordered closed by the State of Michigan due to the Coronavirus. We are actively working to put together online classes. Structure and stress relief are important in uncertain times. I would encourage ALL members of the family to participate in any part of the lesson where they feel comfortable. Additionally, we are working on implementing a plan to test all eligible students. We are not sure how long the shut down will last, but we will do our very best to keep everyone engaged and moving forward. This is a trying time for all of us, and the school is no exception. We appreciate your patience and support during this difficult time. We hope to have a plan in place this week! If you have any questions, please feel free to call Master Sweet at 586-268-5575. Thank you and God bless. ...

Update Regarding Coronavirus

We are cancelling classes the week of March 16 - 21, 2020. While we are closed, the entire building will be cleaned and disinfected. We will re-assess near the end of the week how we will proceed re-opening. We will continue to keep everyone updated via Facebook and email. We have attempted to reach out to all students via phone and have made contact with most of you. There are still a couple we have not been able to reach. If we have not talked with you personally in the last two days, please call the school to ensure we have your updated email and contact info. These are unprecedented times, however, we are working hard to ensure a quick and safe return to training and to keep everyone on track for the upcoming promotion testing. As always, if you have any questions, please call. Thank you and God bless you all.

Update Regarding Coronavirus

We are taking the current situation regarding the Coronavirus very seriously. We will monitor, adapt and do everything necessary to keep all of our students and guests safe. We have always strived to keep our facility clean. We will be “stepping up” efforts to include additional cleaning and disinfecting.

Because we work with many children, we have always had protocol in place for dealing with colds and flu. We would like to remind everyone…

• If a student is feeling sick, has a runny nose, cough or fever in the last 24 hours, please do not come to class.
• We strongly encourage people to wash their hands after every class. We always have plenty of soap and hand sanitizer available.

Please note:

• While we will continue to bow, we will be suspending the customary handshake.

We will keep you updated as the situation evolves. If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please reach out to Master Sweet or any staff member.

Thank you,
Sean Sweet
