Other Policies for Classes

In order to keep our instructors and students as safe as possible from COVID-19, the following safety measures will be in place for the duration of the pandemic.


Crowding and congestion will be reduced by measures to include:
  • Smaller classes (in most cases, maximum 6 students)
  • Few or no drop-in classes (to facilitate contact tracing)
  • Fewer classes per night
  • Staggered start times for classes, more time between classes
  • More space between rings, separate entrance/exit gates for each ring
  • Guest crates have been removed (non-members needing crates must carry in/carry out)
  • Designated parking and entrance/exit paths for different classes 


In addition:

  • No open training during class times (aside from instructors who are there teaching at the time)
  • Students are encouraged not to linger before or after class
  • Bring your own water
  • If a student is accompanied by a friend or family member, the person may watch from ringside, but must sign in, attest to their health status, and agree to observe the same guidelines as students
