October 31 falls on Monday this year. It has been my experience that attendance is very low when that falls on a class day. In an effort to enjoy the festive nature and see the creative costumes students (and families) are invited to wear their costumes next week Monday October 24. (Personally I hope to see some creative martial arts inspired costumes). We will take a group picture at 6:25 after the children’s class. If you are not able to attend that night (or want to wear it again) wear it on Thursday October 27.
Two rules: Your uniform is a special garment for karate training and should not be used as a costume (outside the dojo). The second no dangerous or breakable parts will be allowed during class. If there is some touch up that needs to happen there will be a minute or two before the photos.
Some may ask “What is the value in this?” From time to time it is important to practice in clothes that are not our Gis to see how this affects our ability to move. We will of course go gentle on the costumes. Most of all we are hoping to have some FUN together.
Please join us these nights regardless of your costume and enjoy the time together.
