JCCC Indoor Practice Protocol

The JCCC is beginning to reopen programs within the building in accordance to guidelines provided by the City of Toronto and the Province of Ontario. The JCCC also has put in place the following additional guidelines that must be adhered to.

  1. All Indoor Practices must follow the JCCC Safety Protocol.
    • All participants must be fully vaccinated to Provincial requirements for their age group at the time of registration. Proof of vaccination must be provided at the beginning of each series of classes.
    • All participants 18 and over will be required to show proof of booster shot by February 15. All who are unable to show proof by the required deadline will be denied participation, and no refunds will be issued for remainder of the session.
    • Social distancing is encouraged when possible.
    • Masks must be worn at all times while on premise (once you step out of your vehicle).
    • Participants will follow best practices for masking and social distancing during practice as outlined by the Federation or Association to which their Martial Art belongs. With the current situation the JCCC encourages masking as much as possible.
    • Instructors will take time to explain new procedures to students, and ensure all participants understand the expectations for indoor practice.
    • The JCCC in cooperation with the Martial Arts clubs will provide a safe practice environment with cleaning of the dojo and high contact points at the completion of class, and increased ventilation between classes. 
  2. Limited access to the JCCC building
    • Participant access to classes will ONLY be from the rear parking area into the dojo.
    • Access to change rooms will be allowed but we ask that you abide by the capacity limit of 6 people at a time. Showers will not be available for this session.
    • Lockers will be available for use. While the JCCC will be doing periodic disinfecting of the lockers, they will not be disinfected after each class. Instead, cleaning wipes will be made available. Please use the lockers at your own risk.
    • Washrooms will be available but again we ask that you abide by the capacity limit.
    • Water fountains will be closed. Please bring sufficient water with you to class.
    • Participants may exit the dojo by the doors to the rear parking lot or the main doors. Please exit the area promptly following class.
    • The observation area for the martial arts will be open with a limited number of socially distanced chairs during JCCC’s operation hours (Wed – Sun, 10am –3pm). Starting February 1, the observation area will be opened also on weeknights from 6:30 – 9:00pm. This area is intended to accommodate those waiting for class participants and we ask that you limit the number of observers to 1 per family. We also ask that you remain in this area for the duration of the class.
    • Please note that proof of full vaccination will be required each time that a person enters and re-enters the building from the main entrance as outlined in our visitor guidelines on our website.
  3. Registration & Sign-in
    • To register, please make payment of fees in person, by phone or online, for your program.
    • Registration is not considered complete until participants have completed waiver forms, have active memberships and have paid class fees by 2 days prior to the first class and have received a confirmation email.
    • Anyone who does not complete the FULL registration process by the stated deadline will not be allowed to participate in indoor practice.
    • Proof of full vaccination (as outlined by the Province of Ontario) along with ID must be provided at the first class of a Series. The JCCC will accept this verification for the duration of the Series of classes. Proof of vaccination will be required for each Series of class.
    • The Province of Ontario screening must be completed within 24 hours of each class and shown to the head instructor upon arrival for each class. Links to access this screening will be provided in your class confirmation email. Proof of screening can be digital or physical (print out) and does not need to be retained.
    • The head instructor will be in charge of recording attendance and recorded attendance will be considered proof of completed screening.
    • Failure to follow the processes laid out in our Covid 19 protocol could result in a loss of opportunity to participate in the current martial arts classes until there is a revision in martial arts programming. Your return to martial arts participation will be reviewed at that time.
    • Should you find out that you have a confirmed case of Covid 19 or have come in direct contact with someone who has a confirmed case of Covid 19, please contact Yayoi Kawabe or Christine Takasaki or at 416-460-4598
