Regular Class and Tournament Prep

Our tournament is only a couple of weeks away! We’ll be finalizing arrangements and going through tournament etiquette at the next few classes to prepare. 

Please be prepared to help out with the tournament. We will be needing volunteers to help with the canteen, prize table, and registration table as well as people willing to be timers and score keepers. We will be explaining all of these roles in the coming classes.

EVERYONE should be entering our tournament. The tournaments really are great places to meet new friends and extend your own “karate family”! Winning is not the focus. The focus is to try your hardest and achieve a personal best. Sensei Shintani, himself, said, “You are not finished when you lose; you are finished when you quit.” Come to the clinic on Friday, November 21 and the tournament on Saturday, November 22! You’ll be glad you did.
