All in-person classes suspended - Next update expected week of June 9th
In support of the King County, "Stay home - stay healthy" plan we have suspended all classes (adult, teens, and kids) until further notice. On June 8th we expect King County to request a variance to allow for some in-person training before Phase 2. While we can't spend time together on the mat, we are having Zoom online training on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The dojo will be closed for individual or informal practices. The commitment to keeping all dojo members and our local community safe is our primary intention through this unprecedented time. The board will reassess the reopening on Saturday May 30th.
In order to do our community service to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 outbreak we feel this is the best decision to help us slow the spread of the virus since we are in a high-risk area. The science supports that acting as quickly as possible can have a large positive impact.
Our dojo is a community supported non-profit run by volunteers. Your monthly dues go directly to our ongoing expenses (rent, power, etc.). If you can continue your support, even when we are not able to train, it will be very helpful and will benefit our entire community.
All Kids Classes Suspended - Updates coming June 1st
To all dojo community members. To align with the current recommendations from King County we are following the closures of the Lake Washington School District and suspending all kids and teen classes until further notice. King County has published a guide to help parents minimize risk while children are out of school. You can read through their recommendations here: King County Guidelines for gatherings of children and youth while schools are closed

Due to the new King County prohibition on events to limit the spread of COVID-19 we regretfully need to reschedule our 25th Anniversary Seminar planned for this weekend. We have rescheduled with Ikeda Sensei for July 17-19.
