Having fun with the photo op…. Little Dragons student OT and Sifu set up for an ‘action photo’.
OT has just completed several months of the Little Dragons program (ages 4-6).
This Thursday morning at 10:30am (July 30) will be the last Little Dragons class until the first week of Sept. The class will resume the first Thursday in Sept. from 4:00-4:30pm
The class will be limited to 10 students…. so sign up early to reserve your spot.
Sifu and Little Dragons graduate GR. GR has completed on full year (two semesters) of the Little Dragons program and now has two red stripes on her White Belt.
This past Thursday the Little Dragons class graduated from the winter/spring semester.
Four of our students were not able to be there for this picture because the families were out of town. Only three students graduated from the entire 6 month semester. The remainder of the students had started within the past several months. Out of the three that did attend the entire semester only one was present this past Thursday. GR received a certificate and a ‘red stripe’ on her belt in recognition of the ‘time in rank’.
There will be a Little Dragons class in July, but it will meet on Thursday morning from 10:30-11:00 AM.
The Thursday afternoon 4-4:30 class will resume the first week of September.

Having senior students assisting with the junior students is the tradition in Martial Arts.
It models correct attitude and behavior and helps the junior student to set the ‘standard’ for their art and their life.
The junior student gives the senior the opportunity to look at the material from an entirely different perspective!
