Dear Members & Friends,
As COVID-19 numbers continue to rise again in South Florida we would like to take the following precautions in order to ensure everyone’s safety during class starting on Monday, August 2nd.
In addition to the prescreening app (links below) and temperature checks upon arrival, we kindly ask that all members begin using a mask during our classes. We will have additional masks available at the front desk for those that don’t have one. Please arrive wearing a mask if possible.

For kendo members, we will be providing complimentary All Japan Kendo Federation approved protective shields which can be installed in your MEN (photo below from the All Japan Kendo Federation Covid-19 Response Bulletin). I have consulted with my teachers in Japan, and they have reported that the shields have proven successful in decreasing the likelihood of spreading Covid-19.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation regarding this matter. Lets continue to practice and improve ourselves through budo in a clean and safe training environment.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
