The Montreal Kendo Club will finally resume classes and practices after more than a year. But this comes with many challenges.
 
  • All participants MUST wear a mask until further notice.  Plan to have many masks on hand if you need to change them during practice.
  • We are limited to 25 participants in our facility.
  • The children classes will be held in a different facility : The School Rudolf Steiner De Montréal.(more details below)
  • The change rooms will be closed, so come to practice dressed accordingly
  • All members 12 years-old and up must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • For people who will practice at the Monkland Community Center; you will have to show that you have received both doses (vaccine passport, QR code, etc). Your information will be captured by employees of the community center.

Visitors 
 
We will accept visitors from other kendo club in our region, but please note that we are limited to 25 participants and that priority will be given to members of the Montreal kendo Club.  Visitors will also need to show that they are adequately vaccinated. 
We ask for your understanding since we do not have a mechanism in place to predict the number of participants at each practice.
