Winter 2018 Belt Test

 

The winter test is upon us and it’s time to shine!

All students are expected to be here for the test to support and witness the accomplishments of the students being tested.

This is a super important part of the dojo culture. All students are given class credit and are remembered for their support when it comes time to their promotion. It’s also a practical request because those not testing can help the others warm up and practice their basic 3 or 6.

Thank You!

Sensei Steve Ota

On August 26th Miye will celebrating her 100th birthday, so let's give her some love the day before as she becomes a centenarian!

Thank you to those who celebrated with us honoring Sensei Kenji Ota in May. Please come visit again and if you can't make it this time, then come visit another time that is convenient for you.  Miye loves having visitors and parties.  This won't be the last one! 

Please send your memoir of you and your time spent at the dojo. Short or long. We are writing a book! Your letter will be part of the Ota's dojo history.  

Adults Only - No Kids

Please no presents or flowers.  Feel free to bring some munchies or drinks to share if you are so inclined. There will be light snacks and refreshments provided.  

We appreciate having you in our lives.  

With love and ki,

Miye and Sensei Steve Ota
