ohio responsible restart mandatory actions

We are happy to announce that on May 26, Budokai Martial Arts will be reopening all classes after the State shutdown!  WE THANK EVERYONE who stuck with us over this challenging time.  Your generosity has made this day possible.

A few changes to our process will be necessary to comply to the Ohio Responsible Restart Mandatory Actions.  Please assist us by following the actions.

  • Elimination of the waiting area (parents/family can view the classes live on the Budokai Martial Arts Mansfield, OH Facebook Discussion Group.  For privacy, Jr. Warriors and Warriors have separate groups.  See links below).

  • Active Students may choose to participate in classes at Budokai or at home through the Facebook Discussion Groups.

  • As before, scanning in before class is mandatory

  • Use provided hand sanitizer upon entry.

  • Stay home if you are not feeling well or have a fever.

  • We will not require facial coverings for students.

  • Maintain a six-foot distance from other students (unless within your family/friend unit, or with an instructor).

  • Lost and found has been eliminated.

  • Increased Budokai MA staff cleaning schedule.

Private Facebook Discussion Group Addresses:

Jr. Warriors (5 to 7-year-olds)

Warriors (8 to 12-year-olds)



Dear Budokai Martial Arts Community, 


While our staff and wonderful volunteers have been doing an amazing job keeping our facility disinfected, unfortunately, as of 9 p.m. tonight, we must temporarily close our doors.  Per the directives of Governor Mike DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton of the Ohio Department of Health, all gyms and recreational facilities are mandated to close through at least the end of the month.  We will look to guidance from the Ohio Department of Health as to when we will reopen.


In addition to being concerned about the welfare of our members, we are also concerned about the Budokai Martial Arts staff, and facility as a whole. They, too have families and mortgages.  For that reason, we ask that for those of you who can afford to keep your memberships in place, please do so. We are eternally grateful for the many who have come in today to pay ahead their memberships to keep this wonderful facility open until the ban is lifted. 


Our skilled instructors have happily agreed to stream classes live in our private Budokai Martial Arts (Mansfield, OH) Facebook Discussion Group, where you can access classes at your convenience.  We already have six classes filmed today ready for you to enjoy.  We will also be posting daily challenges to keep you moving and healthy.


All we know is we can only take this one day at a time.  From the bottom of our hearts, we look forward to seeing you online and soon in person.


If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact Mike at (419) 589-1234.


Stay safe and healthy,


~Mike and Sandy Messner
