First of all, congratulations to all Redwood Dojo members who competed in the Hoa Sen dojo kata tournament today! We had a great turnout, and the competitors showed excellent spirit as well as technique. We’ll post congratulations by name once the official winners/participants list is provided by the host.
Next Saturday, December 10th, is Rohai Dojo’s annual Spar Wars tournament – a fun, low-cost opportunity for some friendly sparring competition, as well as padded sword sparring for purple belts and above (sword sparring is open to all ranks teens and adults). Visit the Rohai Dojo events page for flyers and registration forms, or call Rohai at 526-4880 if you have questions. The event begins at 12 noon.
Our December Free Workout for Adults is coming up this Tuesday. Click here to pre-register. We know it’s hard to fit in extra activities during December – but think of it this way: You’ll be getting a jump on your New Year’s resolutions (you know you’re going to be making them again: health, fitness, self-defense, new challenges). Try out the class and get registered now. One less thing to worry about over the holidays, and when January comes, you’ll already be on your way.
