December, the most wonderful time of the year.  It is a season of giving.  This is the month to accomplish your 2022 goals and set your 2023 goals. 


Christmas will soon be here.  We have all the perfect gifts for the karateka on your list.  Sparring equipment, gis, weapons, training manuals, crests and more.  Private lessons make the perfect gift for your favourite martial artist.  Give the gift of health to your family with a gift certificate for marital arts lessons or personal training! 


It is important that you continue to sign up for your classes via 


Please remember to bring all your equipment to class.  There have been quite a few people forgetting and this makes it hard to train properly.  If you need anything it can be ordered through Soke.  Sparring equipment is mandatory for unlimited members after their first three months. 


In the event of inclement weather, a remind notification will be sent out.  Please ensure that you have joined our classes via the Remind app.  We will do our best to email students as well.  There will also be a posting on Facebook.  If in doubt call/text the dojo.  Should we have to cancel in-person due to weather a link will be sent out for interactive online class so that you won’t miss any training!  


Mark your calendars –   The dojo will be closed (all locations) from December 24, 2022 – January 08, 2023.  Classes will resume Monday, January 09, 2023.  Enjoy your holiday with your family and loved ones.  Memberships will be extended for all members in good standing. 


We will wrap up competition season for 2022 with the Toronto Tournament of Champions.  Stay tuned for next year’s tournament lineup.  Let’s see how many we can have representing Team Maizis in the upcoming 2023 tournament season. 


Set your goals this month for the new year.  Pair up with another student to be your training buddy.  It is great to have someone to help motivate you and share in your successes! 


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. 


Have an amazing month, train hard!
