The Finnish Institute of Health and Welfare with Finnish Government has mitigated outstanding guidance on the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on this mitigation effort by the Finnish Government, the Association steering committee has decided to mitigate current Covid-19 practices.
As such, earlier syllabus restrictions are opened to also cover dagger fighting. Limitations on Wrestling remain in use. Similarly sparring is permitted, in doors, on mondays (intermediate classes) and our sparring event, the FKFC, with the caveat on each participant accepting the risks of Covid-19 quarantine.
Class leaders are encouraged to seek exercises where wrestling is not needed, as wrestling remains prohibited. Steering committee considers the association syllabus to contain sufficient material for dagger techniques without wrestling to create engaging exercises.
