Restarting practice

Mountain View Kendo Dojo is now practising on a limited basis, under the following restrictions:
  1. Restricted number of people present in the gym
  2. Masks must be worn at all times
  3. Everyone entering the dojo must be vaccinated (unfortunately this means that children under the age of 12 are not permitted
