CONGRATULATIONS

– Mr. Johnston
– Mr. Ye
– Mr. Dull
– Ms. Malamut

DAY TRAINING CAMP

We have put together a single-day Karate Camp on August 17th. This will be an excellent opportunity for new students to check out the camp along with their parents so that you might feel more comfortable sending your child off to the camp next year for the weekend.

Aside from that, all students are welcome to participate in a day that is going to be full of activities, some training, and a lot of fun. Please see your instructor for a brochure.

SHIAI/SEMINAR

Right now, we are working on a Shiai scheduled for Sunday, September 22nd that will also include a full day of various seminars taught by Master Advincula, the master of our style of karate, Isshinryu. We haven’t confirmed our visit from Master Advincula yet, but the Shiai portion of the day is definitely scheduled for that morning from 9am to 11am….so mark your calendars. That portion of the day will be mandatory for all students…..the rest of the day will be optional with various seminars on various aspects of our curriculum to be announced.
