CoVid-19 Best Practices

Contactless Payment

Contactless Payments

Using a computer or mobile device, you can now register for classes conveniently at home. Thus minimizing physical contact. We will be providing invoices and reminders by email. This can be followed up with an E-transfer. 

Credit card payments will be done at the front counter as usual if preferred. 


Free Online Classes 

You can now participate remotely at home or on vacation by taking advantage of our free option of unlimited online viewing of our scheduled classes. 

Physical Distancing

Physical Distancing

NOX Dojo has designated training pods to accommodate individuals and families. As of March 1st, each pod is now 9 square meters (from 4) and is further separated by another 2 meters for instructors.

In addition, spectators are limited to supervising parents only. Seating is separated by a minimum of 3 meters and limited to a total of 5 people.    


Sanitizing the Dojo

Before the start of classes each day, the entire dojo will be fogged with disinfectant.

Between classes, the tatami and door handles will be sprayed and/or wiped down with a disinfectant.

After classes, the dojo is thoroughly mopped and sanitized.


Arrive In Your Uniform

Access to changing rooms are limited to instructors until Ontario’s “State of Emergency” has been lifted.

Please arrive in your gi and be ready to start class on time. There is a 5 – 8 minute window before class when you wont be crossing paths with the students of the prior class.    


Staggered Class Arrival and Exit

Arrive 10 minutes before the start of class and sit on the bleachers. At the end of class athletes and parents must leave the dojo with 5 – 8 minutes after bowing out. This procedure helps to prevent crossing each other on the staircase. 


Face Masks and Facial Coverings

For the health of our community, NOX Dojo will comply with our local mask and face covering by-laws and will continue to adapt as we learn more about CoVid-19.

September Mask Guidelines

  1. Children 2 years and under do not need to wear a mask.
  2. If you have a medical reason and cannot wear a mask, you can train at the dojo without a mask.
  3. While under strenuous training and if you have difficulty breathing, you may temporarily remove your mask.
Stay Home

When to Stay Home

If you or someone in your home have signs/symptoms of illness of any kind such as fever, cough, headaches, loss of smell, etc… Please stay at home and contact your CoVid-19 Assessment Centre. 

Your household must be free of illness for 14 days before you can enter the dojo.
