Statement on Vulnerable Populations (CDC At-Risk Populations)
- Persons falling into this category are those who are 65 years of age or older, or who have any of the health conditions listed on the CDC website. If you fall into any of these categories, and you wish to participate in indoor training at ASBK, you should first confer with the ASBK Chief Instructor who will make sure that you are fully aware of the risks of training in the dojo, of the mitigation efforts we’ve implemented, and of the other options for safer training that we offer. Those latter options include our on-line ASBK Virtual Classroom and our outdoor weapons training class.
