Our Friday night Sparring class (6:30-7:30) is on hiatus until 6 weeks before the next tournament. We are expecting the next tournament at the end of February but we don’t have a confirmed date yet. We will announce when the class resumes. All other Friday classes remain the same.
Team Montclair had a great turnout and great results at the tournament on Saturday! All of our competitors made us proud and showed great sportsmanship and attitudes in addition to their karate awesomeness. Thank you to all of our dojo parents for making the day a success! Without your support and effort the team and the tournament would not have been a success. We are so grateful for you all!
Montclair Shukokai will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday from Wednesday, November 21st through Saturday, November 24th so that all of our students, families, and staff can celebrate the holiday with their family. We will have a special Little Dragons class on Tuesday, November 20th at 4pm so that you can come to a class this week.
There will be a tournament on the 17th in Metuchen, NJ (Sportsplex). We will have our regular Little Dragon and Ninja classes that morning, Samurai and Adult will be canceled.
Entry forms and other information have been sent to your email address on file with the dojo and the forms are due this week. The absolute deadline is Tuesday, November 13th at 7:30pm. Please get your forms in early.
Go Team Montclair!!
