COVID-19 Safety Protocols   First draft: June 14, 2020 Last updated: March 31, 2021

This document outlines updated protocols and guidelines for training at the CSKA honbu dojo. Please review the frequently asked questions and risk assessment and screening questionnaire in Appendix “A” prior to arriving to the dojo. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to any of our instructors.

Protocols & Guidelines

  1. What changes can I expect upon entering the dojo?
  1. New protocols for entry to the dojo will include hand sanitization and temperature checks at the door. Please complete the pre-screening questionnaire, outlined in Appendix “A” each time you are planning on coming to the dojo. We do not require a physical copy, rather a personal check prior to arrival.
  2. Masks will be required in all areas of the dojo. Upon commencement of training, the mask can be removed. If at any time you need to leave the dojo floor, and at the end of class, then you must don your mask.
  3. We encourage all members to arrive already changed in their Gi. Change rooms will be available for storing jackets and personal items during class times. Masks are required when using the change rooms.
  4. We have implemented distancing markers on the dojo floor with 3 meter distancing and ask that all members adhere to this especially during training when masks will not be worn.
  5. There will be no contact sparring or contact drills (for the time being) between members. Exceptions to this rule will be based on cohorts, family units, and on a case-by –case basis.
  6. You will be required to register prior to attending class so we can effectively manage occupancy count. Please notify us of your registration through Facebook Messenger.
  7. The floor will be sanitized at the end of the every training day.
  8. Classes will be staggered by 30 minutes to allow for appropriate entry and exit times between classes and to limit the amount of people in the reception area. We ask that those arriving for the next class stay in their vehicles until the previous class has fully vacated.
