Spring 2013 Session Started

posted Mar 21, 2013, 10:52 PM by Matt Wilkie

This session many Children's classes will be 1.5 hours so we have enough time to show some presentations on Japanese culture and history on the screen we have installed, also this will allow us to go outside to do weapons when the weather allows. The Adult classes now start at 6:00pm instead of 5:30pm.

As usual for the outside practice we will be in the park at the end of Cook street, next to the cliff. Sometimes we might go up the cliff as we have in the past to train in the trees area.
 
For Friday Youth class only:

Due to some professional l trips, this session will start one week after going back to school. So:

1st class:     Thursday March 28th, 4:30-6:00pm
all others:    Friday,  4:30-6:00pm
no class:      Good Friday, April 5th

Our Annual General Meeting will be Saturday Feb 2nd at 12:00 Noon at the dojo.

It's potluck, all are welcome. The business portion is over in 1.5 hours (or else!). If you're really averse to  business, come late (but we start with dessert!). After that it's just good food, companionship and whatever else we can throw into the mix.

Also in case you missed it, the Adult Schedule is out, and used uniforms are on sale for $20ea to the end of January.



Welcome to 2013

posted Jan 2, 2013, 4:06 PM by Matt Wilkie   [ updated Jan 8, 2013, 12:15 AM ]

Hello Everyone, welcome to a brand new 2013
Ready or not, here it is, so roll (or fly!) with it!

The Children and Youth and Adult Schedules have been set, visit the pages for details.

For the month of January all used uniforms are on sale for $20 ea. The effort for laundry is too much, and we'd like put the space used by them to better use anyway. (You'll see what we've been up to on your next visit).
