Congratulations! A tip about those stripes. And the KICK-A-THON.

… to all of the students who successfully graded up tonight! It was a great turn-out for an excellent grading.

The Senseis would also like to give a special shout to Sensei Cara for all of her work organizing and preparing the grading forms! Thank you, Sensei!

Regular classes resume next week.

KEEP GETTING THOSE PLEDGES FOR THE KICK-A-THON!! Pledge forms and funds are to be handed in to Sensei Kevin. Our kick-a-thon activity will be held on Tuesday, February 18 during the regular class times.

Here’s a tip for our new members trying to figure out what to do with those stripes!!

The stripes should be sewn onto the belt on the plain end (the side without the label). They are usually placed about a finger width apart just so they look good and organized. That also makes it easier for the Senseis to see just how many stripes the student has. The sewing doesn’t have to be some fancy stitching. Just enought to keep it from falling off.
