  • We are deep cleaning every night to ensure our studio is a safe environment for everyone.

  • All doors will be kept open and outside air will be circulated as much as possible.

  • Students will have their own designated training area and training equipment. All touched surfaces and equipment will be disinfected after each use and between the classes.

  • Students will be kept 6 ft. apart at all times, and there will be no contact between bodies, including with the instructor, during the class.

  • All IN-PERSON classes will be streamed live via Zoom so you may monitor what we are doing in class.

  • No changing into uniforms at the studio. All students are required to enter the studio in their uniforms.

  • A mask will be provided for each student upon their first attendance.

  • Please be sure to put a face covering when the student enters the studio. We may ask students to temporarily remove the mask during the class. Students will put the mask on when they leave their training floor.

Choose IN-PERSON, ONLINE, or HYBRID program.


Our ONLINE program will continue to be provided alongside the IN-PERSON classes. You may choose to be exclusively online, onsite, or mix the two systems.


We still believe that IN-PERSON instruction is still the most effective way to learn martial arts. However, there are many advantages of remote learning. We’ll continue to develop our online learning platform so we can provide top quilty training materials combining the best of both worlds.
