Be Ryong is Open and Holding Classes Safely

It’s the new year and many of us have health and wellness goals for 2021. If you’d like to be in the best shape of your life, come on down to Be Ryong and sign up to become a member.

Yes, Be Ryong is open! We’ve been open since July, when the Governor of VA allowed gyms to open up. We offer in person AND Zoom classes. Here are some of the safety protocols that Be Ryong uses to keep all students and instructors safe:

  • The mats and equipment are wiped down with disinfectant and bleach between classes
  • The studio undergoes a thorough deep cleaning at least once a week
  • All students must undergo a temperature check when they arrive
  • We limit the number of students who can be in any single class so that we can maintain social distancing
  • Masks are always worn
  • Parents are not allowed in the studio, only students, to limit the number of people in the studio

Because of our strict protocols, we have remained opened since the summer and our students are enjoying healthy and fun classes. Come join us!

Be Ryong Closed from March 16-28

Out of an abundance of caution Master Yun will be closing the studio March 16 – March 28 to help keep us safe from COVID-19 (Coronavirus) exposure.

Master Yun will re-evaluate the situation over the next week to determine whether to re-open the studio, or stay closed for another week.

The safety and health of our students, instructors, master, and our families is at the heart of this decision.

Please also know that on March 8 and March 15, instructors and students helped Master Yun do a thorough sanitizing of the studio. In addition, during the week, instructors wiped down commonly touched areas, checked for sickness among the students, and asked all student to wash their hands upon entering the studio.

Thanks for your understanding.

Master Yun reminds everyone to keep working out and practicing your forms and techniques at home.

Be Ryong is Moving… Around the Corner to 218 W. Glebe Road, Alexandria, VA

As of December 7, 2015, Be Ryong Martial Arts will be locate at 218 W. Glebe Road, Alexandria, VA.

The new studio is in the same building, but it’s on the second floor and the entrance is from the parking lot. If you are facing the old studio, the new studio is to your right and around the corner to your left. There is only one entrance on that side of the building. Go through the door and up the stairs.

The new studio is larger and has beautiful windows that let in a lot of natural light. Over the past few weeks, Master Yun and some of the students have been hard at work getting the new studio ready. Check out our Facebook page to see before and after photos of the studio. Classes will resume as normal, same schedule, at the new studio. We look forward to seeing everyone at the new Be Ryong!
