Hi Karate Family,

You are invited to come train with us on this Thursday morning (Thanksgiving) to get some exercise in so you can at least feel like you've earned the right to eat all of that delicious food later in the day. The class will run from 9AM to 10:00 or 10:15AM and will consist of mostly kata (I may be persuaded to throw some sparring in there as well). By the way, this is a great way to get some extra training in if you're planning on testing next month and is also a good warm up for our upcoming 100+ Katas for Christopher Court event. C'mon out... It should be fun.

By the way, check out the attached pledge form for the upcoming 100+ Katas for Christopher Court event. Christopher was a student at Granite Forest Dojo (one of our sister schools) who succumbed to childhood brain cancer in 2011. His family and his karate school have been fighting tirelessly ever since to raise money and awareness in the fight against this devastating illness. Please help us help the Court Family and Granite Forest take another small step toward eradicating this disease. On New Year's Day 2019 The Empty Hand will host 100+ Katas for Christopher. Our goal this year is to raise at least $1,000.00 for more childhood brain cancer research. If we can get just 10 people to do 100 katas and they each get 10 people to donate just 15¢ per kata, we will easily reach (and surpass) our goal. Please consider participating in this worthy cause and event and using the attached pledge form to get your family and friends to support your efforts.

Please have an awesome, fantastic Turkey Day!
