SAFETY PROTOCOLS FOR DOJO TRAINING

Everyone’s safety is the #1 priority at the dojo. Though some of these protocols may not be convenient, they are to keep us safe while still allowing us to practice our skills. 

The Big Ones:

  • Everyone must wear a mask. We encourage people to bring their own but we will have (limited) masks at the dojo.
  • Social distancing will be respected. Keep your distance from others inside the dojo. Cones and gear will be set up to keep students apart during class.
  • Temperature checks at the door. A non-contact thermometer will be used. If a member has a temp of 100 or higher, you will not be allowed to stay.
  • Sick? Don’t come in! If you or anyone you’ve come in recent contact with have shown symptoms of being sick, please do not enter the dojo.
IF ANYONE REFUSES TO COMPLY WITH THESE PROTOCOLS THEY WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.

 Class Structure:

  • Only 10 student spots will be available for training at the dojo. In-person class spots at the dojo must be reserved via ZenPlanner App (available for iOS and Android). 
    • If we find that classes are reaching capacity (10 students per class) then we will open a second class option. 
    • Additionally, we have acquired tents to set up in the back of the dojo (outside) for extra training, contingent upon weather and volume.
  • Please arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before class.
  • Please have your child already in their gi and ready for class.  
  • Classes will be no-contact (we still have punching, kicking, kata, solo drills, stretching, ground drills, weapons work, and more).
  • When entering/exiting the dojo mat, stay to the right to have better flow on/off the mat.
 Cleanup:
  • The mats and gear will be cleaned between every class.
  • All doorknobs and surfaces will be wiped down between classes.
