On October 24th, Josh took his third and final brown belt test and showed just how hard he’s been working over the past few months. His kata was solid and he endured a lively sparring round with three black belt opponents. He’s now on his way to preparing for the big one – his first degree black belt. Congratulations Josh!
We had a great time at the Halloween party! Thank you to everyone who participated and to the adult students for helping out.
Here is Faustina with her newly-earned junior yellow belt and certificate. As usual, she came in well prepared and passed her test easily with a solid performance. Congratulations, Faustina!
This year’s Halloween party is on Tuesday, October 29th at 6:30 PM. All students in the kids class are invited. Be sure to wear your karate gi, not a Halloween costume. Get ready for games, treats, and lots of fun!
New this year! Do you have a friend between 6 and 12 years old who would have fun at the party? Bring them along!
We’ll need volunteers from the adult class to come and help. Adults can come in costume!
