Lots of dojo news to share. Here they are in no particular order!

Mike is now a Shidoin!

Yesterday we received in the mail a shidoin (instructor) certificate for Mike from the USAF. This officially allows Mike to promote students to ikkyu (first kyu) on his own. It has been a significant year for Mike in the USAF, as he was also promoted to godan (5th degree black belt). 

Women's Self Defense Class in the Works

Amelia, Jolie, Meipo, Meredith, and Sam have begun making plans for a women's self defense class to be held at the Parish Hall sometime this spring. Details are still on the works, but the committee is quite active in making plans.

Special Practice Offer from Meipo

Meipo would like to offer to pair up as someone's partner for an entire class from time to time. If you are interested in a bit of more intensive training with Meipo, please let her know before class begins. If more than one person asks, she will pair with the person for whom it has been the longest time since such an intensive practice was held.

Wednesday Night Practice This Week

Finally, it is the first week of the month, so don't forget we have practice on Wednesday, starting at 7:30

That's it for now. Hope to see you soon on the mat!

Meipo and Mike
