COVID-19 Update – Amherst

The Amherst Shotokan Karate Academy will reopen classes starting July 7th.

Class times will be Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6-7pm

We will be implementing a few things to maintain the health & safety for our members that choose to attend class.

  • Students encouraged to wear gi to and from training.
  • Students may wear masks to training if they wish to do so.
  • Students to bring own water bottles.
  • Students/persons in the Dojo upon entering clean/sanitize hands. We have a contactless dispenser located just inside the door.
  • Students may wear yoga socks (grip on the sole) or martial art shoes on the tatami. (Optional)
  • Contact surfaces will be cleaned before and after classes
  • Practise good hygiene
    • Sanitize your hands before and after class
    • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Dispose used tissues in the garbage and wash your hands or use the sanitizer immediately after.
    • If you don’t have a tissue, cough and sneeze into your elbow, not your hand.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home if you’re sick, especially if you have a fever or a new cough
  • Zoom class will also continue but format will change to focus on those that attend in person.
  • We will discuss other modifications/procedures in-class.
