Self Defense clinic

On Saturday August 13, Budokan Dojo in Seattle will be hosting a self defense clinic. This is an opportunity to become a USJF certified self defense instructor. The clinic begins with registration at 7:00 and ends at 5:00 that evening.

The cost is $35 including lunch.
I encourage everyone to attend.

I am always pleased to announce new promotions. Each new rank demonstrates an increasing commitment to judo and self improvement, both of which are things that are important and beyond most people.

4th of July

Just a reminder that Monday is July 4th. The community center is closed. I hope everyone has a good holiday and we will see everyone on Wednesday.


Postponing Summer Swimming

Just a note that we are postponing the swimming party originally scheduled for this Saturday as the weather doesn’t look good (this is mostly intended to remind Sensei Oleg who seems unclear on the cancellation).
We may try for July 1 if that works for people.
Have a good weekend and see everyone at practice Monday.
