The Martial Arts Center reopened for classes as of Monday, June 1st, 2020. We created a set of guidelines outlining a conservative approach to safely resuming our Dojo Training of ‘Traditional Martial Arts, Practical Self Defense, Physical Fitness & Character Development’. Click here for our: ‘TMAC’ Member Shield Protocols (Covid-19 / Corona Virus Safety Initiative – Reopening Guidelines)

Here are some encouraging Student and Parent Reviews for you to consider if you have been toying around with the idea of either ‘Starting a Martial Arts Practice’ for yourself or if you are a TMAC Student who stepped away from your practice for Covid Safety reasons and wish to return. I hope to see you on the mat… Shihan Mike Hernandez, Owner & Chief Instructor

Since the dojo opened again, we were very glad to be able to give our son another opportunity to go back. Social distancing is being followed and the measures that are being implemented made us feel confident that our son would be safe.Only students are allowed inside the dojo, but, the availability to watch the classes via Zoom has been great, since we can even also involve our distant family, and that has served as encouragement for our son. Finally, the benefits from giving my son an additional calm leadership figure, as Shihan Mike, during a time of isolation have been tremendous. The dojo gives my son a sense of confidence and focus that comes back home, and that helps us all.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Shihan Mike was serious about the health of his students.  So, when the Martial Arts Center of Atlanta announced it was reopening and released its safety protocols, I felt comfortable allowing my daughter to return.  The safety protocols the dojo has in place, including temperature checks before entry, immediate hand sanitation, and spacing out the students have been consistent since the reopening.  I am satisfied with these measures and I will continue to allow my daughter to attend in person classes.

Our son has been really grateful to be back in the dojo! Thank you for your amazing efforts to keep them safe! Everyone is wearing a mask and you’ve stopped practicing anything where the students need to be close together. After months of no interaction with children his age he’s thrilled to have something safe and physical to do! The extra 5 minutes between classes allows all students to stay more than 6’ apart. When you’re waiting you have a designated spot that is marked and 6’ feet apart. He’s been to many classes since the dojo has reopened and we’ve had zero concerns! Great job Shihan Mike! Our son cannot wait to have more colleagues return!!
