July/August Newsletter

June 30, 2015

Our original Summer Dojo Challenge is almost over (June 1 – June 30), but there’s still a chance to see your name on the dojo wall and win a free patch. Another calendar will be available, beginning July 8 and finishing August 8. Join the fun and finish the dojo challenge!

Karate Fun Days were, well, FUN. We awarded over 200 medals to students over the two-day event. Participants won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals for kata, kihon, and kumite. Also awarded were medals for Best Kiai, Best Bow, and Best Effort. Teen/adult classes broke boards, and every student was a winner!

Happy Summer, Closed on July 4th

June 13, 2015

With school years wrapping up, students and parents get overwhelmed with events. We have a few dojo announcements, or rather reminders, for everyone that may have lost the information in the shuffle.

1) Our new Saturday morning class schedule is in effect! Tournament Training (Black Belt Club or by invitation) is 8:30-10:30 and All-Levels Class (appropriate for make-ups) is 10:30-11:30.

2) Belt testing is next Wednesday. Testing is by invitation only, but we encourage everyone to come and support their fellow karate-ka. Youth testing is 5:30-6:30 and Teen/Adult testing is 7:00-8:30. There is no formal warm-up, so please arrive 15 minutes early for independent warm-up. If you’re not testing and regularly attend Wednesday classes, you can make up the following Thursday evening or attend the Saturday All-Levels class.

3) Early Bird Registration for Summer Day Camp is closing next Monday, June 15th. Sign up now to get the Early Bird Discount!

4) Don’t forget to participate in our Summer Dojo Challenge. The challenge consists of 30 days of karate fitness and can be completed in any order. A parent, senpai, or sensei needs to initial each challenge completed. When you succeed, you’ll earn a USA Karate Academy patch and a certificate to be posted in the dojo. All belt levels are encouraged to participate.

5) The dojo is closed Saturday, July 4th for Independence Day. Have a safe and happy holiday!

As always, feel free to come into the dojo or call us with any questions. Enjoy the beautiful weather!


Holiday Schedule, Saturday Morning Family Class cancelled

May 16, 2015

We will be CLOSED all of Memorial Day weekend. We’re taking this opportunity to give the staff a small vacation by closing the Saturday before our regular observance of the federal holiday. No classes from Saturday, May 23 through Monday, May 25. Regular schedule resumes Tuesday, May 26.

Due to chronic low attendance, Family Class (Saturdays at 11am) is cancelled, until further notice. We can’t maintain this offering with consistent attendance of fewer than five students. We apologize for any inconvenience and encourage students seeking additional practice time to take advantage of Thursday’s Open Gym at 6pm. We will be restructuring the other Saturday morning classes in the near future, but this is the only current change.
