COVID-19 Policy

Current Status: Green

Mask optional


We require a 10-day isolation period if a student has tested positive for COVID. Please email to let us know and we will adjust your membership during your required time out of the studio. If you are a close contact, you can attend class if you are asymptomatic as long as you wear a mask for 5 days. After 5 days, you can discontinue wearing a mask if you test negative.

COVID-19 Operations Matrix

Studio’s COVID-19 Operations Matrix is an adjustable pandemic response plan for infection prevention procedures at the studio based on CDC’s Community Level*. There are three modified levels of operations that reflect these indicators and the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission.

  1. Level 1 Operations (Green) is a low risk of transmission and involve minimal modifications.
  2. Level 2 Operations (Yellow) is an intermediate risk of transmission which requires modifications to studio operations
  3. Level 3 Operations (Orange) is a high level of transmission risk which requires a significant pandemic response and mitigation measures involving intense modifications to our operations.

*Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) looks at the combination of three metrics — new COVID-19 admissions per 100,000 population in the past 7 days, the percent of staffed inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients, and total new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population in the past 7 days — to determine the COVID-19 community level. (CDC’s Community Level Indicator)

If you have any of the following symptoms, we ask that you do not attend class in-person:

  • Cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

Please note:

  1. The changing rooms are open, but we still recommend students arrive in uniform.  The only item students need to bring are:
    1. Hand Pads for Junior White and Int/Adv. Ninjas (Green & up).
    2. Belt Stretcher for Junior Purple Belts & up (does not apply to KneeHigh Ninjas).
    3. Sparring gear for other classes (Please check your gear and email the office if you need new gear).
  2. Participants are required to wash or sanitize their hands prior to class (hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the studio).
  3. Doors will be propped open, air purifiers with HEPA filters on, and HVAC system ‘fan’ will be on, to increase air circulation.
  4. We will continue to conduct proper cleaning and sanitizing of appropriate areas as per CDC guidelines.
  5. Participants may be asked to leave if they are not abiding by the expectations/requirements noted here, or if they begin to exhibit or seem to exhibit concerning symptoms.

General Health Guidelines

We want to continue to provide a safe environment for all. With this in mind, please review our general health guidelines:
Water: There are water fountains in the hallway. Students are encouraged to bring water bottles with them to class. The studio has water in the training areas for emergency use.
COVID: If you or an immediate family member test positive, or are considered “close contact”, please email the studio. Staff may ask you to leave if you enter the studio exhibiting any COVID or flu-like symptoms.
Cuts/Sores: Please tend to any cuts or open sores prior to class and ensure they are sufficiently covered. This is especially important if located on the foot/feet. 
Other Medical: If a student requires possible access to medication during class, or has experienced an injury that will require modifications to training, please be sure to secure permission to participate from a physician in advance and then share this information with the studio.
