Summer is coming, and many of you will miss some training due to vacation travel and other special activities. Just the same, be sure to come to class when you’re in town, and keep up your practice while on vacation so you won’t fall behind in your skills. Please remember to let your instructor know when you will be away.
We’re trying something new with the Summer Schedule this year. Instead of tying it to the calendar months of July and August, we’re matching it more closely to the Oakland Unified School District calendar, so the regular year-round schedule will be back in operation when kids return to school in late August. So (read carefully here!), here is the 2016 Redwood Dojo Summer Schedule:
Our regular schedule runs through Saturday, June 18 (a full week after school lets out). Spring students will then finish the month of June on summer schedule.
Summer schedule begins the week of June 20, as follows:
- No classes on Mondays.
- Peewee Karate meets TUESDAYS 4 to 5 p.m.
- All kids, all ranks, meet Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5 to 6 p.m.
- Teens and Adults meet Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6 to 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday Class, all ages (6 through adult), meets as usual, 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. OUTDOORS.
- Advanced adult workout 7:30 to 8:30 at instructor’s discretion
Summer Schedule ends and full schedule returns Monday, August 22.
Something else new this year: Sensei Didi will be taking the Summer Session off from teaching (for the first time in 25 years), in order to work on some writing projects. Don’t panic! Three excellent instructors have taken responsibility for the classes; they will make sure you get a great workout, learn new things, progress toward your next rank, and have fun. Sensei Didi will check in from time to time, and will return on August 22nd.
Meanwhile, you may still direct questions to Sensei Didi by email: redwoodojo[at]earthlink.net.
In addition, Sensei Didi will still be co-instructing the Martial Arts Summer Camps at Rohai Dojo in Berkeley. For more information about these week-long, all-day camps, download the flyer summer camp 2016, or call Berkeley Cuong Nhu Karate, 510-526-4880.
It’s going to be a great summer. See you at the dojo!
