Update 07/06/21!

As we return to the dojo I wanted to provide an update on how Governor Inslee’s announcement on June 30th to fully reopen Washington impacts AMA.

Masks will be required in our Dragons and Juniors classes for all students (onsite and outdoor). All of our onsite and outdoor instructors are fully vaccinated and will continue to wear masks during the Dragons and Juniors classes.

Masks will be optional in our Teens & Adults classes for fully vaccinated students & instructors (onsite and outdoor) with proof of vaccination. *Students age 12 who are in our Juniors classes and are fully vaccinated may switch to a Teens or a Teens & Adults class if they would like to train without a mask. Please email us for class options.

We are still requiring reservations for all classes, but with increased capacity, we can once again allow spectators for onsite classes. Space is limited and masks are required for all onsite spectators regardless of vaccination status. Spectators are also welcome at our outdoor classes – we just ask that you maintain a safe distance from the students.

Last, but not least, we have also removed the white boxes that have been on the mats since June and returned to the dots that we used in the past. Pic below is our Dragons class today — for many of them their 1st time on dots!

*Onsite students will be assigned a specific and consistent class day/time. Email us if you would like to attend onsite classes — Absolutely NO drop ins!

Karate Tip & Belt Testing: 

  • We are offering virtual tip and belt testing to allow students to progress during their at-home training. Testing is conducted during virtual private lessons in week 4 of each month. To qualify, students must complete 8 virtual classes (Zoom or Vimeo) and then schedule a private lesson. Your instructor will walk you through a pre-test and will 1) provide feedback for what you need to work on, or  if you are ready, 2) will test you for your tip/belt.
  • Black Belt & Degree Testing is being conducted as a private or semi-private onsite exam. Please contact your head instructor for details and to schedule an exam date.

  • If you attending onsite, or are taking the live zoom classes, we are recording attendance and you do not need to submit an attendance card.
