This week is all normal schedule, Mon through Sat. Shout out to everyone who was in class last Friday night–excellent, excellent work in all 3 classes!
We will have directions to the tournament and a gear checklist by the end of the week. Mark your gear with your full name; there will be a lot of students at the tournament and someone may share your initials. Make sure new mouthpieces have been fitted.
The NWSMA sparring and demo team members have been decided on. Demo team members will be getting a sheet with notes, commands, and formation.
Weekly Challenge: Do some shadow boxing (sparring an imaginary opponent) outside of class this week. Push yourself in class.
We’re now on Pinterest, so follow us there for inspirational quotes, cool photos, Sensei-approved snacks, martial arts cupcake ideas and Ninjabread men.
Sempai Yudanjanim went to TMA Overlake on Thursday night for a judging clinic. All black belts please be sure to check in with her this week for important notes about judging. It is likely you will be asked to help out.
