Some of the dojo's current members have been training since before the dojo officially opened in 1990; a handful who are still here were training with the dojo's founder when he was teaching outside his condo a couple of years before he opened it. Are they still learning and teaching the same things as they were back then? Of course not! In fact, students who haven't trained with us in the last few years - including black belts - would not be familiar with some of the things we currently do.    >>> read more

Dude, where's my blog post?!

Good heavens - it's been two months since we posted? What the heck happened?!

Been a busy fall and winter, is what - what with classes and seminars and holidays and (so far two) polar vortices and the attendant ice and snow, and now we're well into the prep sessions for our next set of black belt candidates... there's been hardly time to take a breath!

In other news, one of our instructors is teaching a 12-session self defense series at the fitness center at work (not on behalf of the dojo), which is being very well received - so much so that at the third meeting, the participants were already asking when it would next be offered. (And typical to such seminars, when the participants mention it to their friends or office mates, they are almost inevitably asked "what would you do if I did this?" - and attacked in a way for which they've already been shown a response. There's a reason we train common attacks first!)

We hope to be back to our semi-regular pontificating in the near future, and also to have some guest bloggers. Stay tuned!
