Regarding the health and safety of our students and staff, in light of the concerns around COVID-19, we are taking the following steps:
We are doubling our cleaning efforts on all surfaces and equipment
We will remind all staff members and students to wash their hands before and after class
We have antibacterial hand sanitizer at the desk (hand washing is still the preferred method for sanitizing hands)
We will substitute traditional martial arts bows for high fives and handshakes at the end of class for the time being
We will remind students they should not be working out when they have a fever, are coughing,sneezing, or feeling ill
We will speak to students who appear to be sick and ask them to reschedule their class
We have asked staff members to get substitutes if they are sick and will send home any staff members who are sick

All ranks start at 10:00 am
Arnis Seminars, usually held the first Saturday of the month, allow us to focus on our second style of martial arts in a way that we don’t always get to during regular classes.
Students are divided into groups of similar rank, and each group gets its own instructor so that students can focus on the requirements specific to their rank. We also get to explore more of the details and reality in these specialized seminars.
Arnis testing happens at the end of the seminar for any student who is ready and eligible.
