This Thursday's advanced class will be taught Hanchi Jonathan Kwok, Chief Instructor of SKI-U.S. Federation.
This invitation is for Satsuma Dojo Black and Brown belts. As always, brown belts are welcome to attend the sessions, do as much as you're able, and sit down for things you're not yet able to do.
Thank you to all who attended.
Kancho Nobuaki Kanazawa will be visiting Satsuma Dojo for one day only on Tuesday, June 14. See the attached flyer.
Kancho Kanazawa is President of the international organization of which we are a member, Shotokan Karate-Do International Federation, which was founded by Kancho's father, Soke Hirokazu Kanazawa. Kancho Kanazawa oversees an organization with 130 member countries and 2.5 million members. It is a tremendous honor and opportunity for Satsuma Dojo to host someone of Kancho's international stature, and I hope that all of you will be able to attend his class.
On the attached flyer, you'll see that we have a special schedule on the night of Kancho's visit. Our regular class will be 5:30p-6:45p plus another 30 minutes for autographs and pictures.
Again, I hope you'll all be able to attend Kancho's Tuesday, June 14, class! j
