Unfortunately due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic we have been forced to comply with rules that allow for ZERO contact between athletes engaged in combat sports. This makes it completely impossible to teach the martial arts practiced here at Stratford BJJ.

Despite other team sports being granted special rules that allow for slightly modified play, no updates have been granted to us by the powers that be.

We continue to fight for reasonable restrictions for our industry that will keep both our members and the community safe.

Until an update is made to the emergency act, or, we are given the same treatment as other contact or even non-contact team sports we are unable to open.

We apologize to you all.
