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
There are no exceptions and we take the above very seriously in order to comply with Santa Clara County's COVID policies. Any violation may result in discontinuation of practice, so please help us make the return to keiko a success for everyone.
