Hey, karate family, I hope you had a great holiday!

Sensei announced a few upcoming karate events and asked me to share them with you.

"Hi Everyone,

This fall there are several karate events for students of The Empty Hand.  

Fall Camp
Our east coast family will hold our annual Fall Camp at Camp Green Lane in Harleysville, PA September 9th through 11th.  It should be a great weekend of training!

Next Kyu Exam
Our next rank exam is scheduled for the evening of September 30th.  Sensei Judson Sumbler is the expected examiner.  The class/exam is scheduled to start at 6:30 PM on the 30th.  More info to come in a few days!

2nd Annual Amin Karate Seminar (youth and adult)
On Saturday, October 1st we have all been invited to attend the 2nd annual Amin Karate seminar in Hagerstown, Maryland (about 2 and 1/2  hours away).  The instructors for the seminars will be Sensei Najib Amin, 8th Dan and Dr. Farid Amin, 7th Dan.  immediately following the seminars, I will lead a youth shiai (mini tournament) for all the youth participants.  It was a fun day of training last year.  This year's event should be just as much fun.  The seminar starts at 9 AM with check-in at 8:15 (see the attached flyer for more info).

ISKF US Nationals
The ISKF US National Karate Championships will be held locally this year.  Usually we have to travel to get to the Nationals, but this year they are being held in Valley Forge, PA.  The Nationals will run from November 11th through the 13th.  As soon as we receive the Nationals packet we will send out the sign up sheets so you can participate.  With the Nationals [located] so close this year we should all try to attend and participate!

Keep Training!

Sensei Elliott"

See you in class!
