There have been updates and changes to the Los Angeles County mandates regarding Covid-19 and masking instructions, as well as a significant drop in overall COVID/Omicron cases. We would like to update our MuDo Community on how the changes will be applying to the MuDo IMA school at this time.  

  • Those who are vaccinated have the option to continue wearing masks or not. However, the School suggests students still bring a mask in the event they may be needed.

  • All instructors at MuDo IMA are fully vaccinated. However, instructors will continue wearing masks when teaching junior students.

  • At this time, we are discontinuing the Online Reservations System. Students no longer need to email us ahead of time using the website system to reserve spots in class.

  • Sparring, grappling, and partner-work will still be conducted at a reduced level at the School.  


We are continuing to monitor evolving City Mandates at this time and will adapt as needed. Thank you everyone for your cooperation and mutual respect for everyone in the MuDo Community!

Previous Updates:

Rules involving proof of vaccination mandates for COVID-19 are continuing to evolve as the LA City Council passes down more information. Currently, in compliance with mandates, we are asking students ages 12 and up to show proof of vaccination status. Students with medical exemptions will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

All of our staff at MuDo IMA are fully vaccinated.


Latest News on Los Angeles Vaccination Mandates:

As of November 4th, 2021, the Los Angeles City Council now requires patrons of indoor business including gyms and restaurants to require proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

Hello everyone,

Thank you all for your dedication to the safety measures we have had in place since last year! 


We are currently holding MuDo Open Classes for junior aged students (3 and 1/2 years through 14 years), as well as MuDo Teens (Ages 14+) & Adults Class (ages 18+). Students with frozen memberships are encouraged to come in for a Free Trial Class to try out the Outdoor program! Reservations are required, and can be made on our Reservations page. More details about safety measures and protocols can be found on that page as well. 

  • Out of respect to other MuDo families, reservations are still required each week for classes. This helps students to make informed choices about which classes to take each week, and assists instructors in preparation for the day's lesson plans. Please visit the Reservations Page on the MuDo IMA Website to sign up for a class! Reservations are cleared and reset at the end of each week. 

  • All instructors are fully vaccinated, but will continue wearing masks at the school

  • Masks are still required for students at this time until additional easing of mask mandates for LA County

  • The indoor viewing area is being converted into additional training space, and will soon include more equipment, such as additional weights, and cardio machines

Thank you everyone!
