January Training Session and Promotions

Sensei Justin will be teaching a training session for all Montclair students on Saturday, January 14th from 10:30am – 1:30pm. There will also be promotions held from 1:30pm – 2:30pm.

The cost for the training or promotion is $50. If a student just comes in for regular class time and stays only for their regular time they will not be billed nor will anyone be billed for both training and promotion.

Pizza party for all Montclair junior students (kids) and parents will be from 2:30pm until 3:45pm.

Get together for all senior students (adults) and parents will be from 4:00pm – 7:00pm in Montclair but not at the dojo.

Please RSVP for all events to Sempai Chris at christolynch@aol.com. Thank you and a happy 2017 to all!

Dojo closed 12/17

Due to the snow and icy conditions this morning the dojo will be closed today. The promotion test scheduled for today will be postponed to Thursday night (12/22) at 7:30pm.

We value the safety of all of our students and families and the icy roads are a hazard to all this morning. Please be safe everyone.
