Wed karate cancelled

Hi all,
I'm canceling wed karate class.

I got about 10" of snow around my house, and travel is a little rough. Also, the temp is going to be only 15 degrees and I'm sure the gym will be freezing. See you all Monday.

Karate Fall NEW HOURS (M,W 5:45-7:00pm)

As I previously mentioned, I expected some changes this semester because of room availability at the gym since there is some construction. Because a lot of activities are scheduled in the basketball court, our practice time needs to be changed, at least in the short term (or permanently if people like the times). Therefore, classes will be held on Monday and Wednesday 5:45-7:00 at 5th floor basketball court in thePayne Whitney Gym.

If there is interest, an additional 30 minute black and brown belt class can be held following the regular class.

Classes will start tomorrow on 9/11.
