Dojang Etiquette

Due to Covid19 we have been doing our best to prepare our Dojang to be inviting, clean and safe to practice Martial Arts. Please read below for Covid19 Protocol. Protocol will be updated according to CDC and NYC guidelines.

Safety Rules


All unvaccinated children must wear masks.  Adults and children/teens who have been vaccinated must also wear a mask even after showing proof of vaccination.


Please wash hands upon arrival, either with soap/water (preferred) or provided hand sanitizer.


After putting away your shoes, please wash your feet at our foot washing station before stepping onto the mat. Please bring in-door slippers (Dojang slippers) to use while walking around the Dojang.

Thank you for doing your part

There are many traditions in Martial Arts and here at MSA we intend to uphold many of them. Proper Dojang etiquette is encouraged and keeps us all mindful of respect, for the space and each other. You will need to bring your own Dojand sandals (any clean soft bottom sandal) and clean small towel. Upon arrival please put your shoes on the shoe rack provided and switch to your Dojang sandals. Next please wash your hands and feet at the cleaning station provided (using the clean small towel you brought to dry your feet). Change into your workout gear if needed. All workout attire must be clean with no excessive buckles, zippers, or other sharp objects that could damage the mats or injure your training partner. This is your Martial Arts school so please treat it like your home. Welcome to Martin Striking Academy.
