From Sensei Didi:
There will be a special Martin Luther King Day workout in the park for the Monday classes: Peewees at 4 p.m., age 6 & 7 at 5 p.m. Please wear shoes (no flip-flops), and if it’s cold out, dress warmly! The 5 p.m. class might end early (instructor’s discretion) since it gets dark by 6.
In other news… The year is off to a great start, with kids’ classes bigger than ever. We love the high level of participation, and are also alert to the problem of keeping things focused and orderly in large groups. The instructors and I have many tricks up our sleeves, and we’ll pull them out as needed! Feedback from parents is always welcome.
Martial arts isn’t just for kids; in fact, this is a great time for parents and other adults to get involved. Karate is such a popular activity for children these days, I think people sometimes forget that its origins are very serious and “grown up,” and traditional martial arts continues to be an excellent, long-term activity for adults interested in mental and physical fitness. Come check out our Adult Class on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m., or Teen/Adult Class, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6.
