ECMA Family Consent Form

We have created a family consent form to be sure that any and all prospects and members understand what it means to attend a public organized activity during this pandemic. We have taken our safety protocol and cleaning procedures way past the CDC guidelines to keep our Staff, members and guests safe. The consent form will need to be signed prior to arriving for your 1st class at ECMA.  Click Here to download form.

Check In and Check Out Guidelines

ECMA has adopted strict guidelines for our check in and check out process.  In order to follow the CDC, State and County regulations we modified some of our guidelines, procedures and protocol. 

To attend classes, we need both the parents and the students to understand the process so it goes smooth. Please click here to download the document.

Sincerely, Master Tommy

please complete before leaving home on your way to class.

We recommend families check their child’s temperature and the temperature of the person bringing them to class. We cannot admit anyone into ECMA with a temperature of 100.4 or higher due to CDC guidelines.

1) Please be sure that you bring a water bottle to class. The water fountain will be turned off for safety measures.

3) Out of respect for others, we ask that you wear a clean uniform to ECMA when coming to class and sanitize your hands before entering the building.

When will classes officially start?

Classes officially started in Annapolis on Friday June 26th, 2020.

Classes officially started in Edgewater on Monday Sept. 1st, 2020

Why did we need to select new class times?

Selecting a class time allows the student secure a specific day and time and lock it in for the current cycle. Each cycle students much elect to keep their current schedule or transfer to another time. We only allow 9 – 12 students in each class so being timely will allow you more choices.

Why are there new guidelines and limited class sizes?

There are new guidelines and limited class sized due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We want our students, staff and guests to have a safe place to train. Everyone has different beliefs and values and we will respect them all. Please be sure to abide by the guidelines. The guidelines are located above this section.

Phase 2: Why was Annapolis open in June and Edgewater not until September 1st?

Why was the Annapolis Studio the only one open initially, why not Edgewater? This is a great question. There are 3 basic reasons. 1) Staffing: Due to the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the strict protocols ECMA is requiring, it will take the entire ECMA staff to teach 1/3 of our students. We felt this may take the staff and students about 1-2 weeks to adjust and get in a rhythm. 2) Training: The first week we needed to make sure all staff and students are following procedures and protocols. This was our 1st time to adjust and pivot to this new way of running ECMA due to the pandemic. We wanted to be sure what we offered worked and the structure was good before opening both studios.  3) Compliance: Making sure all the students followed the rules and guidelines to ensure that safety stayed in play as well as the class structure and enjoyment of classes.  We knew everyone was also new to this, including ECMA. We wanted our 1st week to be as smooth as possible. It took a full staff and volunteers to pull this off due to the outside training and check in procedures. 4) Class structure: We wanted to be sure the class structure, instructors and curriculum was working as planned.    UPDATE: It was a success. now you can open next dropdown and read about Phase 3.
