KYU Testing Results (6/18/11)

UPDATE:  Belt promotion celebration scheduled for Saturday July 02, 2011 at noon.  See you all there for pizza and cake!  You are welcome to join us in class 9-10am (All Ranks) 10-11am (Brown and Black belts) in Studio 2 before the party.

CONGRATULATIONS to JKA NorCal students who passed their KYU tests.  I am most proud to see the hard work and training over the past 4 months presented well in your good performance at the test.

For those of you in the intermediate to advanced level (green, purple, brown belts).  I strongly urge you to stretch yourself beyond just classroom training and reach for other milestones in your training.  Upcoming in November is our 2011 JKA/AF Nationals & Collegiate Goodwill Tournament (held in Miami, Florida 11/12-11/13).  It is an opportunity to benchmark yourself to students around the nation and this year even internationally as there is an international goodwill invitation to our shotokan karate friends abroad.  See the links on our site for more information on the event.  It is also a nice forum to make friends; extend your vacation in South Florida and set a goal for yourself to improve and prepare for your blackbelt rank promotion.
