Dan Earns Yondan

On November 8, 2018, Dan came to class just like every other time over the last few years.  But that day was different because it was the honor of Odayaka Martial Arts to present him with his yondan (4th degree black belt) certificate.  After years of work, lots of prerequisites including a terrific project that is now on this website, he completed the final exam with over 90% correct.  Congratulations, Dan.  Well done.

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.

Elizabeth Gains Green-Stripe

On August 7, after patiently waiting a long time, Elizabeth finally qualified to take her Green-Striped White Belt test.  And boy did she nail it!  One of the best tests in a while thanks to all the practice she put into getting ready.  Congratulations, Elizabeth.

Congratulations to Jo for passing her sandan (3rd degree black belt) test on Saturday, June 2nd! It was well deserved – she showed what hard work and many hours of preparation can do. Great job Jo!
