Following Current King County Guidelines
We continue to teach in the studio and class sizes are limited to 50% capacity for each room. This equates to what we normally had for pre-Covid class sizes. We continue to find a balance between students that can train in-studio, students that will continue online only, and how to get all the students working on all their requirements.
Beginning October 25, 2021 people ages 12 and older will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result to enter certain indoor and outdoor events and establishments in King County.
Options for people who are unvaccinated or unable to prove vaccine status:
People who are unvaccinated or cannot prove vaccination status will be required to show proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test in the last 72 hours or a rapid test result from a test performed by a testing provider on site at the event just prior to entry. For COVID-19 testing locations and resources, visit kingcounty.gov/covid/sites.
Establishments will be responsible for checking vaccination proof or negative test status. Public Health will be working with partners to provide technical support and educational materials to businesses and organizations implementing the order.
We continue to provide our online classes and you can see the schedule on the classes page. Videos and one-on-one virtual lessons are also available. Links to our online classes are mailed out each month and also posted on every rank page. Students are encouraged to attend additional rank-appropriate classes to get more training time. Please let us know if you need any help accessing your class.
Ensuring the safety of our students, their families, and our instructors in studio:
All instructors are required to wear properly fitting cloth face masks.
All students and observers will also need to wear properly fitting cloth face masks.
Locker room doors will be propped open and students must come to the studio in uniform. Gear bags can be stored neatly under the observation benches at this time.
We are also limiting classes to 45 minutes at this time to allow for cleaning between classes.
Students must have their own martial arts gear. There will be no equipment available to borrow.
Everyone that enters the studio must use hand sanitizer when they enter.
Please enter the big room by the door near the trophy case.
The door near the desk is for exit only.
Please allow ample space between people for social distancing to enter and leave the small room.
Students will also have to use hand sanitizer prior to entering the training floor.
Contact drills are allowed by Washington State Governor's Office. That said, we are not going to require sparring, grappling, or other contact drills for students that are not comfortable doing so at this time. Please speak with your instructor about your comfort level.
