Covid-19 Enhanced Protocols

At Jing Ying Institute, the health of our members has always been a primary concern. The Covid-19 crisis has forced all of us to adapt to many changes, but we continue to put health and safety first.

We schedule our classes with a gap between them to allow students from the previous class to leave before the next class starts. This also gives us time to sanitize mats and any equipment that is used. Only students participating in the classes are allowed to be present. Students must reserve their class spot in advance (online or through our app) so that we can control class size and have full records of attendance if contact tracing is required.

By default, we continue to hold our classes outside, weather permitting. Each participant has their temperature checked with a contactless thermometer, and masks are required to be worn by all participants. We have markers at 8 feet intervals to help maintain physical distancing.

When classes move indoors, we will open the doors 10 minutes before class starts. Our changing rooms are closed, so we ask you to arrive in your uniform and ready to train. We provide each participant with hand sanitizer and take their temperature with a contactless thermometer as they enter. Masks are required to be worn by all participants. We are fortunate to have a large space with very high ceilings, so we can open doors and turn on our roof vent fan to enhance natural air circulation rather than recirculation. We have markers at 8 feet intervals to help maintain physical distancing.

Currently, all training is without contact. When we do partner drills, we maintain physical distancing and use the partner for timing and targeting without contact. We sometimes use long staffs, kicking shields, or heavy bags to practice techniques without direct contact.

We modified our wifi set up so that we can livestream every class both outside and in. This means you have the option of following along at home rather than in person. This also allows parents to observe their children in class from their vehicle or at home. Our wifi service extends out to the parking lot so that you can observe without using your data plan!

In addition to our livestream classes, which are broadcast only and not interactive, we have also set up interactive virtual classes. These classes allow our students to see and be seen while participating in class from their homes or while traveling. All you need is a smartphone or a computer with a webcam and microphone connected to the internet.

As you can see, we go above and beyond the County requirements! Many students have told us that they appreciate all the steps we take and feel very safe while training with us! Giving up training can have a negative effect on your health. While you work hard to help you improve your health through training with us, we are working hard to protect your health and safety while you are here!
