Ms. Finnemore was the women Black Belt grand champion in sparring and Mr. Pomes was the grand champion in weapons.
We had an exciting night of fireworks, food and moon bounce here. Click here to see photos. Thank you to Linda, Ms. Finnemore, Mrs. Lengyel, Mrs. Hopkins and Ms. Solitro for all your help at the fireworks cookout. You were great!
This week we will be doing board breaking. Board breaking will test your courage, focus and perseverance. Breaking must be done under the supervision of an instructor. There are a few ways to test your technique. One, use the technique effectively while sparring or break a board. These measure the power, spirit and martial intent of a student. Yes, some will be easier than you think and others will be extremely challenging!
Next week - weapons of the NINJA! Blowguns, throwing stars and more.
We are still taking new members for our demonstration team. We will hold a practice Wednesday at 6:20. If you can please come a little early and practice.
