September Newsletter

To all parents and students, we hope that in these strange new times you were able to get out to enjoy your summer.

To all the students who participated in our summer classes from July to August, thank you for coming out, it was fun!

We have decided to close the dojo for the month of September.  We feel this will give everyone a chance to get back into some sort of normal routine.  The time will allow us to prepare the dojo floor and the rest of the building with a deep clean to sanitize it for your return classes starting Monday October 5th.  The first class will be for ages 6-8, All Belt at 5:45.  We will be sending out another letter with more info on return protocol, schedule, etc. at the end of September.

We hope this will allow everyone to return to routines safely and most of all healthy.

Yours,
Sensei Bill
