Re-opening is structured with a revised schedule and training options which will evolve as we proceed through this process. We will continue to serve in-person and virtual training to restore confidence with in-person training while keeping the safety of everyone entering the Academy the highest priority.
In person training: Dojo Preparations
The training floor is marked following CDC social distancing guidelines. For additional safety, we structured student capacity to allow 6 student class maximum, which will include 1-2 sensei's on the training floor as well.
Students must pre-register for class via our mystudio app online prior to arrival at the dojo.Class times are set and are on a first come, first serve basis when pre-registering, with weekly attendance set at 2 in-person classes, per student, for the time being.
Sanitizer stations are located at the front and back of the training floor with hand sanitizer.
Classes are non-contact, no physical touching of other students, however we will continue to use pads and other equipment for training, which are disinfected after every use using sanitizing wipes and sprays.
Spectators/Guests are NOT permitted at this time.
Face Masks are REQUIRED entering and exiting the Academy and while touch-less temperature checks are performed. Once the student is at their training square, they may remove their mask only with permission and acknowledgement of the parent/guardian.
Students with a slight fever or cough will not be permitted to train in-person (100.4 or higher).
The restroom is off limits, for the time being, unless it is an emergency. This does not apply to the SKA Tiger's Class (7-9 year olds).
Arrive in your full gi, ready to train. Additional equipment is not required at this time.
