Welcome to term two.
Welcome back! This term, please be prompt with dojo fees, paying them on the first day. Also, VKR/AKR membership fees will be due this term by the first week in June. More about that closer to time.
Well done to Victoria in the recent AKCs. Both the men's and women's dan teams won this year!
Please enjoy this video above. Takachiho High School is in Miyazaki Prefecture, not far from Kagoshima. This video has English captions, so you can read what they have to say about training, especially Noguchi sensei, their kantoku. He has some really nice ideas and a very calm and warm personality by the look of it. I hope watching the video helps inspire you for the term ahead.
Speaking of which, we will have two weeks of interruptions this term: Sat 11 May and Sat 18 May. There will definitely be no training on the 18th (election day), but I will consider an alternative venue for the 11th. More info soon.
This means that term two is an eight-week term.
We will start Wednesday trainings from next week, 1 May. At the first Wednesday training we will have a special training and a small party afterwards to celebrate the start of the new imperial era. 令和になります！
