COVID-19 Precautions & Plans

We are excited to share with you the new things we are doing at Enso Center.

It has always been the goal of the Enso Center to have our Martial Arts and other programs work in harmony with the environment in a healthy way. Current WA State & King County restrictions have encouraged us to find ways to bring our workouts outside. To meet this new criterion, Enso Center has created two covered outdoor spaces - Cedar Dojang (Dojo) & Iron Dojang (Dojo). Each is close to 1,000 square feet and capable of hosting two classes at a time. Both dojangs will be a great way to keep our current Martial Arts, Tai Chi, Yoga, and Archery programs going as the weather turns and will provide great venues for future programs.

Cedar Dojang is the new name for our outside, covered deck space!

Iron Dojang is the new name for our outside, covered class area in the lower parking lot!

Enso Center COVID Exposure Protocol

  • Identify exposure or symptoms and quarantine the infected individual.
  • Consult most recent guidelines and medical professionals. Here’s a link to the CDC guidelines we will refer to.
  • Notify everyone possibly exposed via contact tracing.
  • Have our onsite instructors get tested.
  • Thoroughly clean & disinfect the center & all workout areas.
  • Pause or adapt programs to stop continued exposure.
  • Resume activities after two weeks (or as recommended per current CDC guidelines) without incident or known exposure.

Three Pathways to Practice

Enso Center is open and moving forward with a three path approach to continuing and improving our programs.

If you know anyone who is looking for a new and fun way to improve mental and physical fitness please send them our way.

Path One: Remote Online Classes

Enso Center is committed to taking advantage of the new opportunities technology provides.

Please join us for a Zoom class (Hapkido, Tai Chi, Yoga, Weapons) and help shape this path. Contact Us for more information about logging in.

Keep a look out for upcoming guest instructors.

Path Two: Safe Start Classes

We are taking advantage of small, in-person, socially distanced classes to give people a personalized workout in the following disciplines: Hapkido, Tai Chi, Yoga, Weapons and Archery.

Enso Center will be following WA State and King County guidelines and regulations as we move towards in-person classes with increasing physical interaction.

More information is available below or by contacting us.

Sign up early to reserve your spot.

Path Three: Online Support Material

For all of our programs, recorded classes and information will be posted to the relative pages.

Enso Center is in the process of updating these materials now.

Coming Soon!

Enso Center Safe Start Classes

These are limited capacity, outdoor, socially distanced classes as part of the ongoing phased approach for reopening businesses in WA State & King County.

Enso Center hopes to add an indoor version following state guidelines soon.

Enso Center can accommodate up to 5 students in each class. You will have to register in advance for these classes. A waiting list for each class is also available. Class Schedule

If you are interested in registering for Safe Start Hapkido, Tai Chi, Yoga, Weapons, Aerial Arts or Archery classes, please email contact@ensocenter.org so that we can give you access to the signup site. Then you can use the following process to register: Safe Start Registration.

What To Expect When You Arrive At Enso Center For a Safe Start Class:

Important Class Information:

  1. The Aerial Arts program is on hold until WA State & King County guidelines allow for small, indoor classes to restart.

  2. The archery field is closed for the winter.

  3. At this time, we are unable to have students (except families) working actively together. Enso Center has reworked our curriculum to allow for solo training under the guidance of our instructors.

  4. In order to meet WA State & King County guidelines for re-opening businesses, Enso Center requests that parents & caregivers do not remain in class areas. Please speak with the instructor(s) if you wish to watch part of class.
