New Year, New Training!

posted Jan 11, 2016, 7:10 PM by Sherrie Hines

Happy New Year Everyone! We hope you're ready to get back into regular training, and we look forward to seeing you at our next class. We've changed the order of the schedule so that the regular class now starts at 7:00 pm and the advanced class starts at 8:05 and goes to 8:45 pm. Note that on Thursdays, we ma have to meet upstairs in the aerobics room for the next month or so while the kids basketball program is going on. We'll have more certain details about that once it starts on 1/14/16. 

We have other ideas for how we can reinvigorate our training program, so be sure to check back for more changes in the coming weeks. Osu!

Saturday Classes Suspended, Super Fights, New Assistant Instructors

posted Jul 21, 2015, 6:20 PM by Sherrie Hines

Superfights are coming up this weekend. Ms. Powell will also receive her black belt at Superfights too, so whether you plan to compete, help judge, or just be supportive, please plan to attend. Saturdays class is CANCELLED due to Superfights.

Additionally, congrats to Ms. Bono for defending her thesis today. I understand there are a few more hurdles to jump through before she'll receive her PhD, but we are excited and proud of her. On that note, she has already moved to Loganville and will be beginning a new job there in early August. This will of necessity keep her from attending our classes as regularly as she had before. As a result, Ms. Vang (as I believe you already know) is now our Head Assistant Instructor. Under her, Mr. Smith is now our primary assistant instructor.  Thank you so much to Ms. Bono (our previous Head Assistant Instructor), Ms. Vang, and Mr. Smith for all that you do to make our class the excellent teaching environment that it is.

Finally, having taken feedback from you all, our Saturday class is officially suspended indefinitely. Instead, all weekend training will occur at Sensei Hofmeister's class at 2pm on Sunday. Please see his website for directions: www.athensy.com  I am excited by the prospect of getting to work more with his students, and to have his students working more with us. We all have unique perspectives to bring to our martial arts training, and I am confident that this integrated class will help both of our dojos improve!

Congrats to all of our students who tested recently! Megan Powell promoted to 1st kyu, Brandon Smith & Steven Davis promoted to 3rd kyu, and Heather Moore promoted to 10th kyu. Next test will be scheduled after Winter Camp. Be aware that because of conflicts with the youth basketball schedule, our Saturday classes will be held from 12pm - 1pm until further notice. 

Also, check out the new and improved WYKKO website where you can go ahead and register for Winter Camp online. The site was redesigned by Athens Yoshukai's Krystina Francis, so be sure to thank her when you next see her.
