Thank You Sensei Schlosser

We would like to thank Sensei Kraig Schlosser of Shuri Ryu Karate Academy for coming out to Chardon and teaching this afternoon. We learned about pressure points, joint locks, some self defense applications and even a new kata.

Also thanks to Kevin for being the sacrificial uke for the demonstrations.

Saturday Summer Hours

Beginning on June 1st, we will return to our “open mat” class format on Saturdays throughout the summer.

The dojo will be open on Saturdays from 10:30am until 12:00pm for Little Dragon, junior, and adult students. There will not be a formal class – students are expected to come prepared to work on their own material. Black belt instructors will be present to assist and work with students individually when needed.

Students may come and go at any time, but they must train for at least one hour to receive class credit towards their next rank. There will be a sign-in sheet on the desk for students to sign in and out.

Saturday summer hours will run June 1st through August 24th. The dojo will be closed on Saturday, August 31st for Labor Day, and we will return to our regular Saturday schedule on September 7th.

Holiday Schedule

There will be no tai chi classes on December 24th and 31st.

There will be no karate classes on December 25th and January 1st.

All other classes will be held as usual (weather permitting).

Kids Halloween Party

We will be having our annual Halloween party on Tuesday, October 30th. All students in the kids class are invited. Be sure to wear your uniforms, not Halloween costumes. Get ready for games, treats, and lots of fun!

We’ll need volunteers from the adult class to come and help. Adults can come in costume!

Saturday Class

Don’t forget – there’s only a few Saturday open mat classes left before we go back to our regular schedule after Labor Day. It’s a great time to practice your techniques, get ready for your next test, or get in some meditation time. Black belts are on hand to help if you need it.

New Summer Hours

Beginning Saturday, June 9th, the Saturday classes will be combined into one class for all students regardless of age or rank. The class will run from 10:00 am until 11:30 am and will be conducted in a more Okinawan manner. That means that instructors will be on hand to work with students who are present but there will not be a formal bow-in to begin class or a bow-out. Students should arrive and depart as it fits their schedule or stay the whole time to work on individual material. The dojo will return to the usual Saturday schedule on Saturday, September 8th.

Tai Chi Summer 2018 Schedule

We have just two Tai Chi classes left before our summer break! Our remaining classes are May 21st and June 4th.

There will not be class on May 28th (Memorial Day). After June 4th, there will be no Tai Chi classes over the summer. We will resume regularly scheduled classes in the fall. Have a great summer!
