Important message for all MDA Instructors and members
 

To All MDA Instructors And Members

Hope that you and your family are well. 

Following UK Government advice on 16th March 2020, and my discussions with Dr Alan Ding, Master Ding Academy HQ Limehouse and Woodford will suspend all activity at both instructor and student level with immediate effect from 17th March 2020 until 14th April 2020 subject to continued review. The decision has been made in the interest of all instructors and members’ safety. This will have several implications:

1. April Instructor Retreat
The 2020 Annual instructor Retreat from 4th - 11th April will be postponed. It will be rescheduled to Saturday 15th - 22nd August 2020 - the original dates for the August Open Retreat. The August Retreat 2020 will now be a closed Instructor Retreat. If you have a booking at the April Instructor Retreat and are able to attend the August date, please let us know. If you are unable to attend the August Retreat 2020, we can either arrange a refund or you can use your payment to attend other MDA courses in the future. If you require a refund, please let us know the following:
Name:
Bank Name:
Bank Address:
For UK only
Sort Code:
Account Number:    
 
For overseas Instructors or students:
BIC
IBAN
 
2. MDA HQ classes
These will be suspended. Your class fees may be used in the future, to take extra sessions owed - during the fallow period, when classes resume.  

3. Branch classes
All instructors (UK & Worldwide) should look to suspend all classes with immediate effect. I understand the socio economic impact that this may have but overwhelmingly, it is with the interests of instructor and member welfare, that this decision has been made. Do let me know the action you have taken.
I refer to the most current guidance released Monday evening evening:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-social-distancing-and-for-vulnerable-people/guidance-on-social-distancing-for-everyone-in-the-uk-and-protecting-older-people-and-vulnerable-adults

Do email us should you have any other queries.

Further update will be posted here.

Take care and stay safe.
