health and safety

As an MMA, fitness, and self defense gym we can only continue to operate if we do so with safety as our top priority, so we have taken multiple steps to insure that we can provide high quality training while also minimizing unnecessary risks. These rules and procedures are meant to be simple and easy to follow, while also providing redundancy where possible so there isn't one single point of failure. Our staff are regularly trained to stay on top of new issues and to make sure we are consistent. Students play a major role in our safety policies, so if you are a member you will be asked to help monitor safety for the benefit of everyone in class.

  1. Everyone in class is responsible for their safety and for that of their training partners. If you see a safety risk it should be brought to the attention of a staff member immediately.

  2. When an instructor calls "time" everything stops. Do not talk over instruction. Put cell phones away until after class.

  3. Students must have their own training equipment that is appropriate to each class. Students without their own gear will not be allowed to participate.

  4. Loose jewelry or clothing items that pose a risk in training will not be allowed.

  1. All training equipment is cleaned and stored properly at the end of training. We use a commercial-grade disinfectant that is effective against Staphylococcus aureus  and other common pathogens including SARS-cov-2.

  2. Our training mats are also cleaned at the end of each block of classes with a similar commercial-grade mat cleaner

  3. No "outside shoes" on the mat. Students are required to train barefoot or in shoes that are only worn on the training mats. If you're going to the restroom please wear your regular shoes. At the gym, flip-flops are your friends.

  4. Students are required to have good hygiene. Keep nails trimmed, avoid wearing strong colognes or perfumes,

  1. At this time we are not requiring masks or capacity restrictions, but we will comply with local ordinances as they are enforced.

  2. We do have masks available at our facilities and encourage their use

  3. We keep accurate attendance records so if there is a suspected exposure we can notify anyone affected immediately

  4. We recommend that anyone participating in our classes get vaccinated against COVID-19. Vaccines have been proven safe and effective against the spread of the virus, and vaccines reduce the risk for everyone at the gym.

  5. IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ANY SYMPTOMS please do not attend classes. Notify us if you suspect you may have Covid so we can contact anyone you have trained with recently. Students showing signs of being sick may be asked to leave the gym.

  6. IF YOU HAVE BEEN RECENTLY EXPOSED to someone who has Covid:

    • IF YOU ARE FULLY VACCINATED: you may continue to train, but please wear a mask for 10 days unless you have a negative test​

    • IF YOU ARE NOT FULLY VACCINATED: do not train within 10 days of exposure unless you have a negative test after at least 5 days
