Do to the COVID-19 issues, we will be offering a few options to keep everyone safe & happy based on their personal risk level. We will be offering grappling (gi & no-gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) & striking (boxing & kickboxing) classes that you can tailor to your liking. You can work independently using the bags/dummies for full safety, you can work with a dedicated ‘quarantine partner’ to get live work with minimal exposure, or you can train/spar with a few people in ‘training group’ if you are low risk.

We want to maximize safety in these crazy times, so DO NOT ATTEND CLASS IF YOU ARE SICK, RUNNING A FEVER, OR WERE EXPOSED TO SOMEONE WHO WAS SICK. We provide skin sanitizer & surface disinfectant. All mats, bags, pads, etc. will continued to be sanitized after every practice. Before and after class you must respect the other members inside the building on the way to your spot, so stay 6 feet away from each other. While not required, masks are recommended to be worn while in the building until you get to your workout square. No “loaner” gloves or attire will be allowed for safety reasons, so bring your personal gear. Also, do not leave anything behind, so double check everything before you leave. This has been a crazy time, so we thank you for all your patience and caring during the COVID-19 quarantine. Hopefully we can continue to add classes to get back to our normal robust schedule as we progress.
