COVID safety protocols
Since our founding 24 years ago,
Anderson’s Martial Arts Academy has always placed an emphasis on innovation and safety for our students and guests. If you know us, you know that a high standard of innovation is in our DNA.
The COVID-19 pandemic has required us to raise our demanding standards to an even higher level with new protocols for the current circumstances, as well as new solutions and learning opportunities for our current students.
- Safety guidelines for the Academy
- Virtual Education Online
- Outdoor Classes
How We Are Sanitizing the Academy
We have initiated plans to roll out enhanced technologies at the academy over the next few months, including Medical Grade Filtration HEPA Air Purifiers offer the highest level of efficiency: a minimum capture of 99.99% of particles at 0.3 microns in size and larger. With 1 micron measuring just 1/10,000 of a centimeters HEPA filters will remove dust mites, mould spores, pet allergens, pollens and ultra fine particles from the air,
ADVANCED COVID-19 hand sanitizer & disinfectant. The product is the EPA registered and organic certified disinfectant known as eco-safe , a nontoxic, noncorrosive, biodegradable disinfectant environmentally friendly infection and bacteria fighter.
Once the Academy re-opens these air purifiers will be in place and working non-stop throughout the day.
Academy staff will clean all surfaces, including the elevator keys, and all door handles as well as equipment every hour.
Locker Room Protocol
We are only allow 3 members in the locker rooms at any given time . Please be respectful of everyones time while changing.
Existing lockers will be available for daily use, and nothing can be left overnight. All items will be discarded daily in order to ensure proper hygiene and safety. We are not responsible for any items left over night.
We will be placing compostable ECO Bags – Made in USA ECOSAFE® Zero Waste – Certified Compostable & ECO-Friendly. For you to place your clothes in the lockers during class times.
Schedule and Required Sign Up For All Classes
As we face limited service during the next couple of month we’ve been forced to adapting to a new schedule and sign-in routine.
*This is temporary, and we will go back to our regular schedule when we can start to bring back normal classes.
How We Will Be Training Temporarily
We have invested in free standing training bags/ dummies that can accommodate all of our arts: striking, MMA grappling, weapons. Each station will have a 6 foot by 6 foot square box, marked off. You will be required to stay in your own space during the entire training session.
Dedicated training masks will be required (The ones you wear too and from the gym will not be permitted in the gym).
*this is a temporary training adjustment, but necessary at this time
*all classes will be available virtually for any students that will be choosing to train from home for that hour.
Classes and Schedule
These three classes will be on a rotating schedule daily though out the week. All classes Monday through Thursday will be taught by Sifu Anderson.
*These classes will be offered both virtually and in-Academy

A word from Sifu Anderson,
We are all facing a historic battle and on most days it is simply about rolling up our sleeves to fight that fight. There are countless examples of humanity and resilience – I see them in how our academy members and individual instructors are responding to the crisis around them, how they are rising to challenge and inspiring others to stay uplifted and strong. All of this fills me with tremendous hope for the future.
We don’t know when the pandemic will be over or when our lives will return to normal. But this will end, and we will all endure. We want all of you to know that when you’re ready to travel to us, we will be ready to welcome you back to a safe and clean environment.
Until that time, keep your mind and bodies sharp and strong. Please stay safe and positive, and we will see you all soon.
