Looking forward to our "Annual Beach Training" this Saturday. We will meet up at the far right corner of the beach by the big rocks. See the map. Nearest parking structure is off 1st street. Contact Sensei for additional information. Printed maps are available at the office. Plan to arrive early. Training starts at 9:30 am. Lunch at 12 noon.
Big event at the dojo is coming up. Our promotion test always brings an added excitement and focus among our students. They've been working hard trying to prepare themselves to earn their next ranking. This Saturday September 28 they'll get their chance.
It's so nice to see our kids growing up in such a safe and positive environment we call dojo. Their training is not limited to self defense practices. I'd argue the focus is even more on developing behavioral skills. Ideas such as hard working attitude, positive mentality and improving communication skills are common subjects in our classes. The question is how much of this dojo learning will they be able to use in every day life situations.
Only time will tell but I'm very very optimistic.
For children, participating in sports has many benefits, and this might help realize an interest in or natural talent for a specific sport. They’ll also gain new friends and a support system that can encourage them to follow their dreams and figure out what's important to them. It doesn't matter whether he or she chooses soccer, gymnastics, basketball, dance or martial art, ask your child to choose a sport, and sign them up.
