Dojo News for October

October 3, 2012

Our regional weapons seminar at Daiwa this past weekend in high heat and humidity was somehow both exhausting and exhilarating!  There was a high level of instruction from our teachers and students received lots of feedback. We have all returned with lots to work on. Thank you for your efforts to get there.

We are now looking ahead to hosting the seminar with Phil Vargas Sensei November 3rd and 4th.

Dojo News for August

August 3, 2012

Dear Members - first of all I want to congratulate Zana for passing her sankyu test,  Sara, Daniel and Jan for shodan, and Nate for nidan.  Their tests were inspiring to us all and a great credit to their consistent practice and preparation.

We hope to be showing a DVD of the testing at Saturday's celebration and goodbye party at Tim's house.  If you haven't heard about it yet, please contact Sara or ask at the dojo.  There is a sign-up sheet for food and drinks.

We also have some great photographs of the tests and these have been uploaded to our website. Please take the time to check our site.  It is changing all of the time.  We welcome your input.  Click here to view more photos from the test.

August is a relatively quiet month but plans are afoot for some Fall seminars.  I will let you know as soon as dates are confirmed.

Thank you and enjoy the summer.

- Sensei
