Scroll Down for the Procedures if You want to Attend Class in the Dojo.

feeling ill or not ready to be in the dojo? here’s our zoom links.

Here is the current schedule.

Please know if you have not registered for classes, you may not be able to attend due to COVID-19 guidelines and the number of students we allow in each class.

Only Register For Classes if you are coming into the dojo. You Do Not Need to Register for Zoom Classes.

IMPORTANT COVID PROCEDURES. 

We are working to maintain our safety standards, while allowing students to return to some form of normalcy. We realize that training in the martial arts is a huge stress relief for students who have been impacted by the many punches 2020 has thrown at us. 

After reviewing the surveys that we received, we have almost a 50/50 split on returning to normal and maintaining our safety standards. Therefore, we want to maintain the same things, but bring back some of the environment that we used to have.

All students are welcome to wear masks through class, and we encourage it. 

All students are welcome to continue to train on Zoom during the classes we have set up. Links above.

ALL 7:00 CLASSES WILL BE ADULTS ONLY

SPECTATORS CAN WATCH CLASSES NOW

We will allow parents to come watch class. You will need to be masked. You will need to maintain social distancing. Chairs will be cleaned between classes as often as possible. We will have paper towels and a spray cleaner available if you want to clean for yourself. 

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER THE COVID-19 QUESTIONS IN A WAY THAT WILL KEEP EVERYONE SAFE. 

Please use sanitizer as you enter and exit the dojo.

Please wait quietly in the seating area.

Place your shoes in the shoe rack and use sanitizer again before you begin training.

As, always, we ask that you stay home and rest or take advantage of our Zoom classes if you or someone from your family has been sick with any illness or if you or someone from your family is showing symptoms. This has always been our policy. For example, if a sibling tests positive for flu, please stay home and take advantage of the online curriculum.

STUDENTS CAN USE THE SHOE RACK FOR THEIR SHOES. 

They will then line up in order of rank on the socially distanced spots before classes. We do ask that people not arrive more than 10 minutes before their class. 

WE WILL BE CLEANING EVERY TWO HOURS FOR SANITIZATION.

YOU WILL STILL NEED TO PRE-REGISTER FOR CLASSES.  

We will not be strict on this unless it gets to where there are too many people showing up for class.

wear a mask in and out of the dojo, please.

Currently, the State of Alabama has a mask order in place. As we line up for class, we may not be quite six feet apart. We ask that you be respectful and help us maintain the safest, cleanest, environment we can during this time and wear a mask into and out of the dojo. We understand that everyone has an opinion regarding them, we just are doing our best to follow the state guidelines for fitness centers. You are not required to wear the mask while training.

Thank you so much for your support, patience and encouragement.  We are also working on ways to do the graduation for May and our Black Belt Graduation.  Many of our vendors have been closed down during this time so it’s a challenge.
