It brings us immense joy to announce the start of our fall karate semester and to welcome you back to the dojo! The dedication and passion of our members for karate have always been an inspiration to us, and we are excited to continue this journey together.
As we resume our training sessions, rest assured that we have taken every precaution to ensure your safety and well-being. Our instructors have been eagerly preparing to provide you with top-notch training, engaging workouts, and the camaraderie that makes our karate family special. Whether you’re beginning your training, returning after a break, or continuing your journey from where you left off, we’re thrilled to have you on the dojo floor. Your presence contributes to the unique energy of our program, and we’re looking forward to achieving new milestones together.
In addition, we are thrilled to share that this year marks a truly special milestone as we celebrate our 30th anniversary since our inception in 1993. This three-decade journey wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication and enthusiasm of members like you who have been an integral part of our karate family. As we reflect on the past and look ahead to the future, we are filled with gratitude for the incredible memories and achievements we’ve shared together.
