Welcome to session of 1 of 2018! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s amazing progress this year! We have a lot of really fun things planned for this year. I will keep you updated as they come along. The first event we have on our schedule is with the new Cambridge dojo. We will be doing a demonstration on Sunday, January 14 starting at noon for the Health Expo. Our demonstation will be in the little theater at the Cambridge Elementary school.
We added 2 new classes to Jefferson this month. Saturday mornings 9:00 – 9:30 am is a little tigers program for 3, 4 & 5 year olds. Then from 9:30 – 11.00 is the new open class. This is a “double” class for all ranks and ages 6 through adult. If the scheduled classes during the week don’t work for you, this is a great opportunity to train on the weekend! Open classes can be a lot of fun because you get a lot of different perspectives as well as getting to train with new people. You also learn a lot!
This session, we will be doing a lot of pad drills to help you get better at your katas and bunkai. Hitting pads is always fun and it’s a good workout too! As always, we will be sparring the last week of the session, so please make sure you have your mouth guards that week. We will work in a couple of testing days this session as well.
Do you have a friend that is interested in karate and self-defense? Check with Sensei Bolton to see when you can bring your friend to class to give it a try!
