Raffle Extended! Plus some other stuff…

We hope you are all staying home and staying healthy!

We have extended the draw date of our raffle in order that people may be able to sell more of their tickets. The new draw date is MAY 26, 2020.

You will need to turn in your tickets  by May 22, 2020.

You will receive an email with details on how to turn in your tickets and money once you are finished selling them. You do not have to wait until May 22 if you have already sold your tickets.

Hopefully you have been keeping up with your karate practice at least a little bit. We haven’t yet made any videos or done any live-streaming, but many dojos have. Our friends at Bushido Karate Association in Edmonton have had great success with their Zoom Virtual Dojo, and they have invited us to attend their classes online. Here is their information…

Classes will be running from 6:00 – 7:15 pm, with the following focus and schedule:
Tuesday – Advanced (Blue and Up)
Friday – All Ranks
Sunday – All ranks
This schedule starts Sunday, March 22.
To access the class, you need to have a safe location with plenty of space, access to a device with a browser so you can run Zoom, and use the following meeting coordinates: https://zoom.us/j/2997718316

Please email us to let us know if you plan to attend one of their classes and let us know how it went. We can update your attendance on our records which will count towards your next grading.

Don’t forget that kata is the application of the techniques we learn in class. It is through kata that we learn how to use the techniques should we need them. Be sure to continue your kata practice, and remember to “Keep it Real!” Practice kata with intensity and focus. Like Sensei Ron says, “Do every technique as if you are breaking 4 boards.” Do your kata slowly with focus on stances/body position; then do them in sequence; then tournament style. Be fussy! Video record yourself and review yourself honestly.

Most importantly…  STAY HOME – STAY HEALTHY!

See you at the dojo… eventually!
