Congratulations to everyone who tested at the kyu rank test!

Saturday’s kyu rank test was a terrific event with lots of spirit and energy!  Congratulations to everyone who tested!  We look forward to seeing you continue in your martial arts journey!

 

Dan Rank Exam Sunday 4/26

The Dan rank test will be held Sunday, April 26th at 8am.  Anyone of Dan rank (black belt) is invited to the test to observe or participate in the testing.  3 students will be testing to advance so we will need lots of help with kumite!  We are requesting that everyone be at the dojo by 7:45am.

Kyu Rank Exam Saturday 4/25

The Kyu Rank Exam will be held next Saturday 4/25 at 8am in the morning.  Regularly scheduled classes are cancelled because of the exam.  Good luck to everyone who is testing!  We look forward to seeing you in class this week as your polish the final details before the test! Osu!

Kyu Clinics Scheduled

Kyu Clinics are a great opportunity for you to get targeted help on the new material for your rank.  Black belts will be there to work with you on polishing the new katas and self-defenses you have been learning while also brushing up on older material.  These clinics are extremely important in helping you prepare for the upcoming Kyu rank exam and for developing the mind set of a black belt- that you can always learn something new and always learn to do things a little better.

Yellow Belts- Sunday 3/29 10am-12:30pm

Green Belts- Sunday 3/29 1pm-3:30pm

Brown Belts- Sunday 4/12 10am-12:30pm

Forms to sign up are available at the dojo.

Dojo open tomorrow 2/16/15 Presidents’ Day

Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean we are! The dojo is open tomorrow night and all week. Stay warm in this cold weather! Osu!

Dojo closed tonight 2/9/15 due to weather

At the risk of sounding like a broken record:

Due to predicted unsafe road conditions from our local weather advisories the Dojo will be closed for all activities this evening. Stay safe and warm! Osu!

Take this opportunity to continue training on your own tonight.  Some suggestions:

  1. Not a lot of space at home? try doing your katas without moving your feet.  Don’t worry if your head explodes- frustration builds learning!
  2. Get in front of a mirror and practice your punches and blocks: start slowly and make sure you are targeting the right places.  Remember- a good high punch should be right in front of your own nose! For higher ranks use the mirror to practice 4 block drill and shuto drill.
  3. Read a karate book or search for some interesting things to read about karate online (kids- make sure you have a parent’s permission and supervision).
