All of our activities have been adjusted to social distancing activities, with reduced stable group sizes,  outdoor activities and our indoor space has windows and doors on all four sides of the room with fans moving air constantly. Health department rules for cleaning and sanitation have been implemented. Special training tools have been developed to support martial arts skill development without contact. We have also created an entire series of social distancing games.

  • Samurai games

  • Basic sword-work through Jedi lightsaber training

  • Watermelon splicing with wooden swords

  • Skill-building samurai obstacle courses

  • Calligraphy-inspired painting
