Anderson’s Martial Arts COVID and Safety Protocol
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 and care 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.
Throughout the lockdown we offered a complete schedule of virtual master classes, seminars and learning opportunities.
We are proud to say that we are open to a complete schedule of classes, and we would like to bring your attention to two very specific things we are doing for our students:
Safety Guidelines for the Academy
Education and Innovation Emphasis
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. Our air purifiers are in place and working non-stop throughout the day.
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.
Academy staff will clean all surfaces, including the elevator keys, and all door handles as well as equipment every hour.
TEMPERATURE CHECKS & MASKS
If you are fully vaccinated, as of now, masks are not required.
The staff will check your temperature.
We ask that you sanitize and wash your hands upon arrival into the Academy and after every class.
LOCKER ROOM PROTOCOL
Please be respectful of everyone’s changing time and do not linger.
Existing lockers are available for daily use, 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. Lockers are cleaned daily.
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.
