Return to Summer Uniforms

I just wanted to announce that we are returning to our regular uniforms starting Monday, September 29 which is in one week.  All students must have their uniform tops, pants and belts, with school patches properly affixed to the left breast of the uniform top.  Any student not in proper uniform will not be able to participate in class that day, so please be sure to remember to bring the top as well.

Congratulations to our newest Junior Black Belts

I just wanted to take a moment to say congratulations to our two newest Junior Black Belts, Cian and Aneesh!  They worked very hard and seemed pretty exhausted at the end, but now they are able to start a new chapter in their Black Belt journey.  Congratulations!

Quick Update

Just a quick update on a few items.  First, I hope everyone is enjoying their back to school days.  I know some parents are!

First order of business:  Standard uniforms.  We will return to standard uniforms (uniform top) in the next couple of weeks.  I will post here and also send out an email a week or so before. Until then, enjoy the warm weather while we have it because winter will be upon us before we know it!

I have two rank tests scheduled for this month.  This is the reason we have not been sparring.  Once those are done, look for a return to sparring week.  We will once again start sparring the week of September 22 (which is a Monday).

Finally, my web page and facebook page are sorely lacking in photographs.  If anyone has any pictures they would like to share, please feel free to forward them to me.  They can be of rank tests, tournaments, normal class, or anything else people would like to share.  The studio pages are as much the student' as well as my own.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to teach.
