Huron Valley Aikikai COVID Protocols and Plan

July, 2021 

As the Coronavirus pandemic increasingly begins to fade, we are keeping a close eye on the numbers of cases and vaccinations to determine how to proceed with reopening the dojo to something more like our normal operations. Below is a summary of our current thinking and potential timeframes associated with various stages of this process:


  • Current State  All of our instructors and members age 12 and up are now fully vaccinated. We have also returned to regular training (partner practice, full contact) for those with confirmed full vaccination. The dojo has a  large roll-up door for excellent ventilation and we continuously monitor CO2 levels to ensure good airflow in the space. IN LIGHT OF THE NEW CIRCUMSTANCES PRESENTED BY THE RAPID SPREAD OF THE DELTA VARIANT, FOR THE TIME BEING HURON VALLEY AIKIKAI WILL ONLY ALLOW FULLY VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS (OR THOSE WHO CAN DEMONSTRATE A LEGITMATE MEDICAL DISPENSATION) TO TRAIN IN-PERSON IN ANY OF OUR PROGRAMS. New members and visitors are kindly asked to be prepared to provide documentation of their vaccination status prior to training at HVA.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update this information as events allow and look forward to welcoming everyone back as fully and as soon as possible!
