Attention! Attention! Attention!
At this time Metro Orlando Judo Kai is currently holding Judo classes 1 day a week, on Saturday, from 12:00PM -1:30PM. WE are only allowing our existing adult class members to attend, though we will consider special exceptions. Our training consists of outdoor exercises for physical conditioning and indoor training with masks for technique training...both ground and throwing techniques. We have very strict Covid procedures, and expect anyone training with us, from white belt to red & white belt, to follow these procedures. Anyone experiencing any Covid or flu symptoms will not be allowed to train until we have evidence that you are well and that you did not have Covid, or that you did have Covid and have recovered...waiting the recommended time in quarantine, and have had a negative Covid test no more than 4 days prior to training. We are now training at the Orlando Academy of Martial Arts Renzo Gracie Jiu Jitsu located in Fashion Village at 3837 E Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL 32803. Florida, as well as much of the rest of the U.S., is still experiencing significant increases in the number of new Covid-19 cases. As a result, Metro Orlando Judo Kai is evaluating weekly whether or not it is a reasonable risk to continue with our Judo training. Our most important consideration is the safety of our students, our teaching staff, our family members, and our community. We will post updates on this website, our Facebook page, and on Instagram.
For general information on Covid-19 you can visit the Center for Disease Control and National Institutes for Health (NIH), and the Florida Department of Health Orange County Websites by clicking on their respective logos below. We strongly urge everyone to wear masks, wash your hands regularly, and observer social distancing guidelines. Again, We will continue to post updates on social media and this website. During this down time, please check out our Video page on this site, our YouTube channel, and our Facebook page for some interesting Judo videos and Judo related information.
