A Note Regardinging COVID-19

Hey Everyone,

We have been following the COVID-19 pandemic as it progresses, and in light of what is happening in our world and in our community, we have decided to do our best to be apart of the solution and are temporarily closing the gym until we are allowed to reopen. We do not take this decision lightly. Our community safety and recovery is of our primary concern, and we have taken the necessary precautions based on governmental guidance to protect YOU, our Budo Family Members.

Don't worry though, you are not completely off the hook!! We will be posting workouts online and will try to set up some small pop-up classes here and there depending on weather, and as appropriate...we will try to keep you all nice and busy. Please make sure to follow us on our Instagram and Facebook accounts to keep up to date with our workouts, and news as it progresses.

As a personal favor, I ask you all to be patient as we collectively work our way through this challenging time. I know that it is a lot to ask, but I ask my peeps if it is at all possible, to please not put a hold on your memberships so that we can all have a place to come back to once all this smoke has cleared.

I will keep you all posted as things progress, and we will keep working through this unprecedentedly crazy time together. Please keep in touch via our social networks, and stay tuned on the FB and Instagram with new content, workouts, pop up classes etc, and hopefully, with all of us working together, we will all get through this.

Side note, we have hooked up with our awesome friends at SloVeg so that we can make sure our Budo Fam can get access to fresh produce...delivered to your door! Use the code "budoryu2020" in the promo code and get $10 credit towards your first box!

OK, my peeps. Stay safe, and wash your damn hands!! If anyone needs anything please, please let us know how we can help. - Eric Sandahl
