WHERE TO PARK

We've provided a map that shows all the places you can park for free indicated by the blue location markers. If necessary, we have some parking passes, but are limited.

OUR FACILITY

Here's an inside view of our space. There are mats everywhere so that you don't get injured when you're on the floor or near a wall. For sanitary reasons, please remove your shoes outside before stepping onto the mats as we don't want to bring in dirt from outside.

Once inside, place your shoes on our shoe rack. Then hang your coat and bags on our bar with hooks located underneath our custom painting. We also have a shower with soap on the wall and clean towels if you want to shower. We have one bathroom and behind the mirror there are hair ties as well as feminine hygiene products.

If you're thirsty, please try to bring a water bottle. However, if you don't have one, we have compostable cups for you to use to fill up.

ETIQUETTE

We pride ourselves on our culture. It's one of those things that you can't buy. Here are some quick insights about the etiquette at the gym

ATTITUDE

This isn't a tournament. There is no need to break your training partners. These are training partners, not opponents. We like to make sure everyone is having fun and also very safe.

HYGIENE

Cleanliness is next to godliness. We keep a clean facility and spray down the mats each day. Please do not walk onto the mats with your shoes and if you already have a gi or other workout close, please arrive with them cleaned and not already sweat filled. Additionally, please try to keep your nails trimmed and cleaned.

TIMELINESS

If you arrive a couple minutes late, it's no problem. However, please do try to be on time. If you are more than 10 minutes late, you may be asked to participate in class later or the next class as the instructor is already running class for those on time.
