This is a quick reminder… The coming Easter long weekend means that all classes on the  the last two days of the month… Fri., March 30 (Good Friday) and Sat., March 31, will be cancelled. As well, the first two classes of April, Sun. April 1 (Easter) and Mon. April 2 (Easter Monday) also will be cancelled. Please enjoy what we hope will be fine Spring weather with your friends and family on the long weekend!

Summer camp in Calgary is coming up June 23 to 29.… we very strongly encourage anyone who is interested in attending an outstanding week of training with Osawa-shihan to look into it and let us know if you have any questions.

Another great opportunity for training will come May 19-20 at a USAF seminar in Montreal celebrating Yamada-shihan’s 80th birthday. We strongly encourage you to attend if possible… it will be a great weekend of practice. Since that is the long weekend, there will be no classes in our dojo. Let us know if you have any questions.

As well, we are beginning a Spring promotion to get new members into the children’s class. Here are the details:

  • Coupons will be available to the kids to offer to their friends, good for one free trial class.
  • Any kid that joins as a result of this promotion will get a great deal… a beginners’ package that includes annual CAF dues, a gi and three months of membership for $125. That’s a savings of about $80!
  • Any kid who refers a friend who joins under this program will get a free month of dues for each friend who joins.
  • The program is effective from April 1 to June 1.
After class tomorrow night (Thurs., Mar. 29, approx. 8:15 PM) we will head over to Boston Pizza for a quick celebration of Jim-sensei’s birthday. Hope to see you there!
