There are numerous ways Red Dragon Martial Arts is here to help you and your families train in karate and stay safe through this unprecedented time.
Face masks that cover the nose and mouth are now optional in all of our classes, and still required in our 3:15pm Youth class. Students wash hands before and after every class. All Red Dragon instructors are fully vaccinated with Booster shots.
Programs: ~Small Group Classes and Private Lessons at Red Dragon: Students may attend small group classes at assigned days/times or come for private lessons. Class sizes range from 5-15 students and are always the same group of people. Karate classes are currently non-contact and taught with social distancing in mind (including as students enter and leave). The entire facility is mopped and disinfected before and after every program. Karate is a great way to stay physically active and enjoy a little social interaction, all while following health and safety protocols.
Is this safe? ~We are limiting all class sizes to less than 15 students to prevent exposure to large groups. ~There is no public waiting area. Students line up 6 feet apart when entering and exiting the dojo. ~ Students do not regularly engage in any physical contact with anyone not in their family during classes and lessons. ~All hard surfaces, such as door handles, light switches, benches, etc. are disinfected daily. All porous surfaces, such as the mats, pads, standing bags, etc. are disinfected before and after every program. We only use disinfectant certified to kill the coronavirus and 99% of all other viruses and bacteria. ~We are asking all students who feel ill to stay home until fully recovered and have no symptoms of illness. ~Further, none of the Red Dragon staff will ever teach class or be in the building if ill, and will follow the same health and safety procedures listed above.
