Torrance Kendo Practice Restart: 2/1 (Tues)



Just a reminder that we will return to the dojo on Feb 1 (Tues).

Please keep in mind the following requirements to return:


  • Everyone must continue to wear a mask at all times (including periods of heavy exertion)
  • Members that are not fully vaccinated must be tested weekly and submit negative results (taken within 72hrs)
  • Everyone must continue to self-screen for symptoms and stay home if they exhibit any symptoms.
  • Do not attend practice for 10days if you have been in close contact with anyone who tested positive for COVID (or submit negative results)
  • Report to sensei’s within 24hrs (or ASAP) if tested positive for COVID (so other members can take proper quarantine measures).


Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding.

Hope to see you next week.
