Beach day canceled today

Due to weather conditions at the beach (it’s raining sideways!) our beach day is canceled for today. We are so sorry it didn’t work out today and we hope to see everyone soon.

Beach Day!

Montclair Shukokai will be having our beach day on Sunday, August 19th. The plan is to meet between beaches 2 and 3 in Avon by the Sea, NJ starting at 9:30am. Look for a flag designating our spot. Pizza will be provided on the beach at 12:30pm for those that have RSVP’d. Please bring all necessary beach items with you including drinks and note that there is a charge to go onto the beach.

Update: In the event of rain we will meet at 12noon at Vic’s Pizza in Bradley Beach, NJ. There is a pinball museum and arcade in Asbury Park that interested people can go to after lunch, more info available at lunch. We hope to see a bunch of smiling faces on Sunday! We miss you!

June 23rd and Summer training

Hello everyone!

We want all of you to know of the goings on at the dojo these next few weeks as well as for the summer. Saturday, June 23rd will be the last time we will be hosting the World Tournament team for training before the event in Sweden next month. We will have all of our regular classes that day, a promotion test for those that are testing, WT training, and then a BBQ! The BBQ is open to everyone and we hope to see all of our students and families there. BBQ will start around 7pm.

The dojo will be open over the summer! We are still working on our schedule for the summer and we want to hear your interest and availability for summer training. We do have a sign up sheet on the door of the dojo but you can also email us at montclairkarate@gmail.com to give us your availability for training over the summer. We will try to offer classes for all age groups with some classes being combined. If you have questions please don’t hesitate to ask us. The last day of the regular dojo year is June 30th and we will start the summer training in July.

Hope to see all your smiling faces soon!
