Summer break. There will be no classes during the month of August as we take a month off to recharge.
Last class before the break: Friday, July 29.
First class after the break: Friday, September 2.
We are looking forward to seeing you in September. Please take this time to rest, study your notes and continue to practice your basic movements daily. Remember, it only takes 5 minutes a day.
Dear students, parents, volunteers,
After nearly two years of uncertainty, I am happy to confirm that regular training will resume on Monday, January 31st, 2022. The new location will be at the Christian Community building at 901 Rutherford Road just West of Bathurst St. I am grateful to the Board of the Community for welcoming us in their Community Hall.
I would like to thank all those of you who supported the club during the pandemic, who waited patiently, who trained diligently over the years and intend to do so again, and everyone else who committed their time and effort to help us spring back to life. I understand that restrictions and protocols mandated by the government have divided us and might not allow everyone to attend, nor would they allow for a completely relaxed training atmosphere.
I look forward to seeing you on the mats in January. Until then, I wish you health, confidence and the drive to come to training despite everything that stands in your way.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first class. The new location does not have dedicated changing facilities or showers. You should come dressed for the training. If this is impossible, there are two private washrooms where you can change into Gi and back. Due to the COVID restrictions, the students should be inside the building only to actively participate in training. When you enter, a senior student or an assistant sensei will greet you and show you around. There are many things to do around the dojo. Four coffee shops, a Longo's grocery store and much more.
