Fall, ‘17 Newsletter & In-house Tournament Results

November 18, 2017

From Shihan:

As I look forward to my 37th year in martial arts, I am grateful for all martial arts has enabled me to achieve as a person and to offer to our great community. It was a blessing in disguise letting go of our Annual Pacific Northwest Karate-do Classic tournament this year as it allowed us to host an in-house tournament for our very own dojo members.

Our in-house tournament gave us the opportunity to demonstrate the art and sport of karate-do in a fun, non-intimidating environment. All our students’ karate skills shined brightly at every level. Newer students were able to get a glimpse of what a karate tournament is like and parents of our students had a chance to get to know one another.

The new leaders of our dojo (senpai) were able to practice judging, officiating, refereeing, and organizing.

For those of you who may have missed the event, we announced that Sensei Justin Wilson is returning to the dojo as our new Program Director. After 4.5 years, Sensei Justin returned from living in Japan where he worked in private education. He is eager to utilize his experience in education to refine our classes and operations at the karate school. Sensei looks forward to getting to know our dojo family, so please introduce yourself if you haven’t already.
