As Florida is currently experiencing a significant spike in Covid cases, Metro Orlando Judo Kai is evaluating the best way to continue our Judo training, while at the same time practice in such a way as to protect our students, our staff, our family members, and our community. We strongly urge everyone to wear masks, wash your hands regularly, and observer social distancing guidelines. We haven't set a date yet, but we are hoping to reopen for at least 1 day per week starting the 2nd week in September. We will continue to post updates on social media and this website. We will be requiring some very strict guidelines for training, and will be providing more information on that very soon.
During this down time, please check out our Video page for some At-Home training videos, as well as other videos showing our instructors teaching techniques, and some competition videos. For an excellent source of statistical information on Covid cases in Florida, please visit the following link:
