To our TMAP Community,

We wanted to thank you all for the amazing response we have had to the email we sent you last Tuesday.

Both myself, Sensei William, Coach Abel, and the entire TMAP team are truly humbled by your kind messages and offers of support. Thank you so much, we are incredibly lucky to be part of such an amazing Dojo family. We are in the process of responding to all of you personally but in the meantime, we wanted to send a group communication to show our gratitude.

Many of your messages have been requests to keep your memberships running, some have been offers of donations, and others have been wonderful words of support. Some of you contacting us are former members who now live on the other side of the world! Thank you all - you mean a great deal to us. 

Also, we absolutely understand that not everyone is able to continue their membership or donate, and as mentioned, your kind words also mean a great deal to us. We are now working hard to be here for all of you when things finally get back to normal so we can see you all back in your Dojo.

For clarification, those of you continuing your membership or your child’s term membership, will receive a full credit for those payments towards your classes when they resume. You also have an option to use the credit towards private classes, kit or uniform at the Dojo.

Online content and live web classes and social media 

This week we are launching a new Facebook group just for TMAP members where we can all stay in touch with each other during this difficult time and share content. Invitations to join this private group will be sent out to you today.

Also, this week we will begin posting video content, along with training tips for both adults and kids. Live web classes will closely follow this for adults and children. Details will follow in the next few days. 

With regard to the online content, we are always open to new ideas and feedback, so if there is anything specific you would like to see from us then please let us know. Also, if you have some particular expertise in video and online content then we would also appreciate any help in optimising the content we are looking to provide to our members.


For those of you that have been asking how to make a donation to the TMAP Dojo fund, you can do so via PayPal using the following address: (Please tell us who you are!)

Alternatively, if you would like to make an online bank transfer then please contact us and we will give you our bank details. Again, thank you so much for your support.

If you have any questions for us regarding any of the above or if you would like to get in touch then please email us and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Warmest regards

 Sensei Russell, Sensei William, Coach Abel, and the TMAP Team
