Adult Karate-Do rank testing 1.22.09

At this Adult Karate-Do rank testing Dennis Gobiel was promoted to Probationary Black Belt. Dennis started training with me at NMH while in high school. He is on JRRMAS Staff, helping with the youth and adult Karate-Do programs

I’ve just started this Studio Blog ( JRRoyMartialArts.blogspot.com ). This is my second post. I plan to start publishing everything from inspirational quotes to Kata’s (forms), tech, drills, exercises, qigong, pictures, short videos and my own original ideas that come out of my daily practices over the past 34 years.

I’m not sure the frequency for posting new material yet, but at least an ‘lesson’ per week to start with …maybe more…I know some of you have been waiting (patiently) for me to publish for years and I think I’ve finally found a format that works for me..stay tuned for more! I’ll be more inclined to work on the Studio Blog it if it’s being read…so please RSVP me an email or write a ‘comment’ when your in looking at it and please help to pass the word….ok?
