Spring Tournament

To parents and students; a reminder to you all, the preregistration date for the Guelph Tournament is this Tuesday.  If you have not signed the sheet to register, please do so before Tuesday at the end of class.  We will be sending the list of registered participants, along with the fees that night after class.  Students who have not signed up by the end of the last class on Tuesday can still do so, but the cost will increase to $60.00.  This event is for charity, and all proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington.


Kids Grading

This year we are trying a different approach.  Kids will be graded together in their class.  Students are reminded that they are graded on listening skills and paying attention as well as kata and technique.  Fees for the grading will be posted at the dojo following the Guelph Shia.  Students are also reminded to wear proper footwear as we will be going outside if the weather turns nice.  Fingers crossed.


Belt Presentation, Certificates and Year End wrap up

Our year end barbeque will be held on Saturday June 22 rain or shine.  The new belts will be awarded at this time. The barbeque is for all our dojo families.  Parents are encouraged to bring siblings.  Hotdogs and hamburgers will be provided. This will conclude formal classes at the dojo.


Summer Classes

Summer classes will run from July 2 to August 1.  These are condensed all belt classes. Fees for summer classes will be $10.00 per class.

                White – Blue kids; 6:00 to 7:00 pm Tuesdays and Thursdays

                Adult all Belt; 7:00 to 8:00 pm Tuesdays and Thursdays

The dojo will be closed for the remainder of August for cleaning and renovations.


Canada Day

Any students wishing to walk with us in the July 1st parade, come with your Canada hats, red shirts, Gi, and belt.  We will meet at the Elora Community Centre at 9:45 and will finish at Bissel Park on Mill St. Freezies will be provided after the march.  It is a fun and great way to celebrate our Nation’s Birthday.


Domo Arigato,

Sensei Bill Stimpson
