Today, March 12, 2020, the Ontario government announced the closure of all publicly funded schools after March Break until at least April 5th, 2020 to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 ("Coronavirus").

Following suit with the government, the South Western Ontario Region (Caledonia, Hagersville, Paris, and Waterford) clubs will be cancelling all events until at least this date. This includes:

  • Regularly scheduled classes beginning tomorrow, March 13, 2020
  • March Break workouts
  • Ju Jutsu clinic on March 29, 2020

While COVID-19 is not particularly dangerous to most of our students, we feel an obligation to protect everyone involved, from our students and instructors, to their family and friends who support them at the club and at home.

Further news will be shared through various mediums, including the MAPDA site, Facebook pages, and club communications (text messaging and email). To keep up-to-date as the situation progresses, we'd ask that you check back here occasionally, or follow your club on Facebook:
