2018 Kyu Rank Testing & Youth Shiai (Tournament)


  1. We will be having KYU rank testing on Thursday January 25th from 6:30 - 7:30.  Those eligible to test will be posted by Monday the 22nd and normal adult class will follow starting at 7:30.  Our next testing will be in April with a date to be determined.
  1. Our friends from Anderson Karate have invited us to participate in their Youth Shiai which will be on Saturday, February 10th.  This tournament is open to Shotokan students and is very well run.  If your student would like to participate, I will need their completed registration form and payment by Friday, January 26th.  Here are the registration form and information:

  1. It's that time of year to renew our annual membership in the WTKO.  The annual student fee remains $25 and will be added/due to the February tuition.  I will have WTKO passports and renewal stickers in early March to update your registrations.
  1. Please know the dojo is open based on its schedule, not specific school schedules.  If weather is deemed to be an issue, please check your emails and www.japanesekaratedo.com for open/close updates.
  1. Finally, I will be out of the country next week with sporadic access to email and no access to phone.  Please see Steve, Josh or Umang if you have any questions or send me an email but know my response may be delayed.
