Last week we celebrated Holly's ascension to 1-Dan.  This week we will not have classes on Wednesday the 27th nor the following Saturday the 30th.  Let everyone have a good Thanksgiving and then come back the following Wednesday to start practicing again and work off some of that Turkey.

The Saturday of the 7th we'll be right back at having our celebration classes.  That day will be for Max for also getting to 1-Dan and on the 14th we'll have our celebration for Derrick.

Please come and help us celebrate their new ranks.


November 9th

Classes are going as scheduled.

The summer heat has gone but our winter isn't too cold yet.

Today we had the birthday bash for me and there were 10 people to show the love.  The next four weeks will be to celebrate the ranks earned by Ziplock, Holly, Max and Derrick in Chicago last week.

Please come and help us celebrate their new ranks.
