There will be a dinner (free-will donation), a bake sale, and a silent auction. Events will be held at Concordia Jr/Sr. High from 6 – 9 pm. Please plan to attend and help out for this great cause.

If an organization is going to survive, it has to be willing to make changes over time. The karate school that I went to as a kid would not survive in today’s world (you just can’t hit students like you use to). As such we are going to make some minor changes to our rates, our hours, and our policy.
At the beginning of every class we recite the Dojo Kun. For the rest of this month we will be working on “We Karate-ka shall seek perfection of character.” Master Funakoshi wrote “The ultimate aim of Karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the character of the participant.”
