2015 Guest Instructor

Well, I hope everyone is ready for an exciting semester. I hope to have a guest instructor come midway through the semester. I have invited sensei Margaret Thomas to teach a class.

Sensei Thomas holds a 6th degree black belt with the Japan Karate Association and is one of the highest-ranking women in the country. Sensei is also an accomplished competitor in sport karate. She has been a member of the USA Karate Team numerous times and has received regional, national, and international kata and kumite (sparring) awards spanning more than a decade. Sensei is an internationally certified JKA Instructor, Rank Examiner, and Tournament Judge.

Remember that winter camp is right around the corner and is a great opportunity to have instruction by some of the worlds leading instructors at a very affordable price. If you need me to forward the information again, please let me know. Several students have already expressed interest, so car-pooling is probably very possible.

Self Defense Class Mondays 8-9pm

Also, following the Monday class, Dawn and I will be holding a 6 week self defense class that will include self defense techniques and gun disarming. It's a very fun class, the cost is minimal (I think around $20 for all 6 classes), and it has received a very warm reception in the past. This class is different from the one that was held in september.
All are welcome to join us following the Monday class from 8-9 on the 5th floor of Payne Whitney Gym . Even if you cannot make Monday karate classes, feel free to come to the self defense class.

Nov 7-8 UConn Fall Mini-Camp and Tournament

This year's UConn Fall Mini-Camp and Husky Cup Competition will be held on Nov 7-8 at UConn. As in past years, this will be a great learning experience for students to be introduced to competition in a less formal and intimidating envirnoment. The competition will also give budding (and experienced) judges the opportunity to practice and get feedback. Note that the Saturday morning practice will include a judging seminar.
There will be junior events and if there's enough interest, separate categories for older (9-13 yrs) and younger (5-8 yrs) children.
Details are attached and posted on our web page:
Hope to see you there!
