Updated Schedule for Thursdays

Starting this week, Thursday nights we are bringing back our 8-9pm class. We will be focusing on rondori. Everyone is welcome to come throw what you know.

New Thursday night class schedule is:

6-7pm General Class
7-8pm General Class
8-9pm Rondori* Class

Rondori is an exercise where we focus on building your instincts.  There is less coaching of individual points and nuances and more on the big picture.  All ranks are encouraged to attend.  Can't stay until 9pm?  That's ok, please join and step off when you need to go.

Yup, it's a snow day.

The Dojo is closed tonight.  Stay warm.  Have fun shoveling.

Snow Day??

We're supposed to get wolloped Wednesday.  Please check here before venturing out for class on 3/12/14.

I will make the call Wednesday PM, because if I do it now, the storm will just pass us by and there will be a lot of angry kids who didn't get a school day off because of me.  :)
