November 2020 Graduation

GRADUATION NIGHTS ARE WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18 OR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19.

YOU WILL NOT USE THE SPARK APP TO SCHEDULE YOUR GRADUATION TIME!

You can now change your time in the Spark App the same way you register for classes if you need to!

With the COVID-19 restrictions and the spacing requirements and half the number of people allowed in the building we are trying to figure out if we will have regular classes or allow others to participate in graduation night. We apologize for the confusion. We are trying our best to follow the rules and give an experience to our students. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

  • Masks will be required of the spectators in order for us to have a graduation.
  • We will also use hand sanitizer and doing temperature checks as spectators and students enter the dojo and before students step on the mat.
  • There will be pod seating for our spectators.
  • DO NOT BRING GEAR.
  • Do bring the required weapons.
  • Please do not attend if you are ill or showing any symptoms of any illness. We will do our best to take lots of photos.
