Upcoming Youth Kata Clinic & Youth Shiai

posted Jan 22, 2014, 6:23 AM by Todd Elliott



Sensei Hiro Okazaki and Sensei Amy Okazaki have invited us to participate in a youth kata clinic and youth Shiai (mini-tournament) on Sunday, March 23, 2014.  The event will start at 11:00 am and will end at 1:00 pm.  The clinic and Shiai will be held at the Palmyra Community Center (30 West Broad Street, Palmyra, NJ 08065).  The kata clinic will run for 45 minutes, immediately followed by the Shiai.  

This will be an opportunity for our youth competitors to get some practical experience prior to the April East Coast Championships. Since our hosts have use of the entire indoor basketball court at the Community Center, this will be a great opportunity for new youth competitors (and veterans too) to get the feel for what it is like to compete in a large open space.  

There will be pizza and drinks following this special training.  Our hosts request that you make a small donation of $3.00 per person to defray the costs of the refreshments.  Please let us know as soon as possible if you will be attending so we can let Mr. & Mrs. Okazaki know how many participants to expect from our club.  The should be a fun day and a great opportunity to get in some tournament practice.  Let's go visit the Okazaki Karate Academy and train with really excellent instructors!  Osu!!
