Elora Karate Dojo

Pandemic policy

About our policy

  • Our policy is based on the recommendations from public health and independent medical advice.  As pandemic regulations change, our policy will change with it.

  • In general, we follow the same guidelines as the local school board and tend to err on the side of caution. If you have questions about our rationale, please contact Sensei Barb.

Capacity limits

  • While maintaining a 2 metre distance, the dojo can accommodate 18 people on the main floor.

  • Kinder Karate classes are limited to 8 students, plus one instructor and one assistant.

  • Core classes are limited to 14 students, plus two instructors.

Your responsibility

  • If you are sick/symptomatic, please stay home.  

  • Remember that the dojo is frequented by vulnerable people. 

When to wear a mask

  • Masks are not required, but please wear one if it makes you more comfortable. We will give you a mask if you need one.

  • If a member of your household tests positive for covid, please wear a mask in the dojo until your household is clear.

  • If you no longer symptomatic after a covid infection, please wear a mask until you get a negative test result (or 10 days after your last positive test)

  • .You will be asked to put on a mask if you have a persistent cough or sneeze during class.

In case of lockdown

  • Classes will move online in your current schedule and membership level. Core program students will have access to two classes per week online.  

  • Given the special considerations of young children, Kinder Karate classes will not be offered online, and students will receive class credit towards a future program.

  • Whenever possible, we will train outdoors when indoor spaces are deemed risky.

  • In the case of lockdown, there are no refunds for membership and training fees, although we may make exceptions in extreme situations. 

 

Please review the refund policy before committing to membership..
