All students will be in a designated 6 ft. training area and will train only in their area.
  • Classes will be geared toward striking techniques and self-defense and training without partners.

Concerning the larger classes:

  • There will be set times for students to attend class.
  • We will be looking into having single belt level classes to cut down on class size.
  • We will focus on keeping the schedule as is – and adapt as we move forward.
  • Semi-private classes will become available, once we get through the initial phase.
