ANN ARBOR, Mich.
- June 24, 2020
-- Following Governor Whitmer's appeal of a recent ruling allowing Michigan gyms to begin re-opening, uncertainty has descended upon the Michigan fitness industry.
Whitmer's appeal is intended to keep some uniformity in quarantine measures and prevent a patchwork of regulation governing different industries and regions of the state.
Despite the uncertainty, the fitness industry is preparing for the eventual re-opening.
Ann Arbor's Japanese Martial Arts Center is implementing many new health and safety precautions in the meantime.
JMAC founder, Nicklaus Suino-Sensei, says: "Preparing to reopen has presented us with a unique set of challenges. Martial arts practice prepares you to be flexible in the face of adversity. We're rising to this challenge. We're committed to keeping all our students and instructors safe, and will be enforcing strict guidelines regarding handwashing, social distancing, and personal protective gear. Additionally, we are asking anyone that is or has been sick recently to not show up."
JMAC's target date for reopening for in-person classes is Tuesday, July 7th
The Japanese Martial Arts Center has been serving Ann Arbor and Southeast Michigan since 2006, with traditional martial arts taught by world-class experts. Visit their website for more information: https://japanesemartialartscenter.com/
