Dojo Safety Measures:
If possible, students arriving by car or nearby are encouraged to wear their gi to and from training.
Only three students at a time are allowed in the change room. Showers prohibited.
Upon entering the dojo, first, sanitize your hands with gel provided. Second, after removing footwear and storing, spray your feet with the fast-drying spray. Because you have to hold the bottle to spray, please sanitize your hands again.
Dispensers are located at the entrance/reception, front and back of the dojo, and also outside the change rooms. Please wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap in the change room.
Bring your own water bottles and place them in the dojo cubby-hole along with your personal items. There will also be disinfecting wipes for you to wipe your spot before and after you leave.
Summer Class Schedule:
The line up for the opening and closing bowing ceremony shall be from your designated spot; only standing bows.
Please do not shake hands; greet each other with a bow.
