November 12th Promotions

All of us at Montclair Shukokai were amazed by all of our students testing for belt promotions on Saturday, November 12th. Not only did all of the students pass there was also an incredible amount of support from the parents and families as well. We are incredibly grateful for all of you and thank each and every one of you for your support.

Mark Saturday, October 8th on your calendar!!

Greetings all!

Montclair Shukokai will be having a special training session with Sensei Gavin Armstrong (6th Dan) from 2-5pm on 10/8. All adult students as well as all green belts and higher are expected to attend. The cost of the training session is $50 (cash please). It is really an honor to have Sensei Gavin come to our dojo so a good turnout is essential. This is our chance to train with Sensei Justin’s Sensei!

We will be having a BBQ and party starting at 6pm, please let Sempai Lynn or Sempai Chris know you will be attending the party (we want to have a lot of food for everyone). The party is to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the dojo as well as to celebrate our medals in the 2016 KSI World Tournament in Berlin, Germany back in July. All students and their families are welcome at the party as it is a community event. We hope to see everyone there!

Please note there will not be an adult class on 10/8 but all other classes will be held that day as usual. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions. Thank you all!
