We are excited to resume in-person instruction as part of Reopen Connecticut! The health and safety of our students is our number one priority, and we're committed to adhering to all of Connecticut's reopening guidelines.
Here's what you need to know:

Major Highlights:

  1. Any students with a fever or flu-like symptoms will not be allowed to train

  2. We are requiring an updated insurance waiver for all of our students

  3. Until July 7th, all classes will focus on strength, conditioning, agility training, and solo martial arts drills. No freestyle grappling or sparring will be allowed until July 7th.

What we're doing to keep you safe:

  • Classes will run on our normal schedule, but will end five minutes early to reduce contact between different classes and give our instructors time to sanitize the dojo

  • All mats, training surfaces, and doorknobs undergo stringent cleaning and disinfection procedures before and after every class

  • Hand sanitizer will be dispensed to all students immediately upon entering and leaving the dojo

  • All employees are being monitored daily for symptoms

  • Waiting room seating has been arranged 6 feet apart

  • In the dojo, students will be kept 6 feet apart whenever possible

  • We will avoid all partner drills in our Krav-Kempo classes until July 7th

  • Children's BJJ grappling classes will not resume until July 7th

How you can help us stay safe:

  • Parents, if possible, please drop your child off and wait in the car

  • Wear shoes in our facility any time you are not on the mats

  • If you have a fever or flu-like symptoms do not come to the studio. You will not be allowed in class.

Thank you to all our students and families for sticking with us and continuing to support us over the past few months! We are excited to be training with you again!

If you have any questions, please feel free to give the studio a call at 203-239-4474!
