‘Tis the season to be jolly while training! Well I suppose that is every season because training is awesome! Here we are in the last month of 2023, and what a fantastic year it has been.
Congratulations to Paige and Addie for their outstanding performance at the Orangeville Open Martial Arts Championships.
The next big tournament we are planning on attending as a team is February 24, 2024 in Burlington, ON. Let’s see how big of a team we can bring. More 2024 tournaments will be listed in the January newsletter. For more information please see Soke.
Quick reminder about inclement weather class cancellation. The notice will be sent out via Remind (make sure you are signed up) and we will do our best to post on our Facebook page and notify local news stations. Those signed up for class will receive a link to do an interactive online class.
Join the Remind App if you haven't already, to keep you up to date on all dojo information. Class codes are: Stayner @stayner, Thornbury @thornburyd, and Collingwood @cwooddojo. If you need a link sent to help with this process let Soke know.
Please follow the sign when parking at the Hombu so as not to block traffic. Thank you.
There is still time to shop for the favourite karteka on your list. New sparring equipment, new gis, weapons, manuals, crests, private lessons all make great gifts. A gift certificate for our school is also an excellent idea.
Mark your calendars; there will be no evening classes December 05, 2023. There will be no classes December 09 due to the grading. There will be no classes December 18, 19, 2023. Tai Chi will be on December 21 instead of December 19. The dojo will close for Christmas holidays from December 24, 2023-January 07, 2024. All classes will resume Monday, January 08, 2024. Please note that memberships in good standing will have this time added.
Quick reminder to make sure that you sign up for all of your classes online at www.picktime.com/karate. This is extremely important. Also please remember to bring your sparring equipment (not mandatory in rec class), weapons (if required at your belt rank) to each class.
Have a wonderful holiday. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
