Happy Birthday in February

The Dojo Shiai
is just around the corner and we trust all competitors are practicing hard. Action begins @ 9:30 AM (doors open @ 9:00) on Saturday, February 15th at the Dogwood Gym, Vernon Recreation Centre. We will open with the singing of our national anthem followed by a demonstration by our Little Ninja’s and Leadership Team. The Black Belt kata and weapons divisions will start the action and we will continue with our White belts, Yellow Belts and up. It is difficult to gage exactly what time each belt division will run so we ask that participants listen for their event to be called and practice the word of the day, PATIENCE! Sensei is still looking for sponsors for this event so if you or your business are interested in helping please speak with Sensei.
