Weekly Signs, Busy Monday

Published on September 16, 2013, by in Blog.

So a new week is upon us and it’s already getting crazy!!!

We have the Kids Seminar (Saturday the 21st) and the Adults Seminar (Thursday the 19th) this week and next weekend is the Grading (Saturday September 28th). All those attending the seminars get ready to have some fun and learn a bunch. If you’re getting ready for the Grading remember to smile!!! Here is this weeks sign. I like this saying. If you feel bad, afraid, nervous, sad, happy, excited etc remember that it’s what you do after you feel that, that counts. Have a great week,

Here is last weeks sign. Ironically, I got busy fixing a few other things that Last weeks sign slipped through the crazks. Oh Sensei, listen to your OWN advice. LOL. Enjoy.

Weekly Sign

Published on September 9, 2013, by in Blog, News.

Hello Everyone!

It’s been a great start to the month and it’s getting better. This week’s sign reminds me of an old set of Dojo Rules.

1) Don’t sweat the small stuff.

2) It’s all small stuff.

Remember to look around once in a while.


p.s. (We are having a few computer problems so no picture of the sign for a day or so).


Weekly Sign, Schools Back

Published on September 3, 2013, by in Blog.

School is finally back! Kids sigh, parents cheer and everything gets back to “normal”. It was a great summer and it’s turning out to be a great year. We are getting even closer to that 1 year mark. But pay attention for more posts about that later. This week after the long weekend we have a sign reminding us not to force things all the time. Enjoy, and I look forward to seeing everyone back and training.

Weekly Sign… Batman IS Watching

Published on August 26, 2013, by in Blog, News.

Hooray/Boo, school is back. As the summer winds to a close, kids go back to school and vacations end remember to enjoy our last week before life gets even crazier again.

A little reminder the Dojo will be closed on Monday September 2nd for Labour Day. Enjoy that sun!

All the info for the seminars next month is posted on facebook and is available at the Dojo. Click on each link to go to the correct page for more info, KIDS SEMINAR    ADULT SEMINAR.

Also, our next Grading is on September 28th and I have a feeling it will be a big one so get ready. If your aim is next month keep your focus and don’t let up!

This weeks sign is simple. Always remember what the most important weapon is that everyone has. Also, DON’T FORGET TO USE IT! Keep it sharp, focused and in shape. You only get one so don’t waste it.

Have a wonderful day and see everyone soon


p.s. I saw this sign on the weekend and wanted everyone to feel a little bit safer around the neighborhood. lol

Busy September! Weekly Sign

Published on August 19, 2013, by in Blog, News.

Hello once again EVERYONE,

Been a great summer and it looks like the hot weather is going continue a little longer. I for one am ok with this.

First: Computer is back up and running. Took a bit of time to sort everything out but I can upload everything to the net and update info. Our first update is for Knife Self Defense Seminar. We have two dates, one for kids and one for adults. For the kids the seminar is going to be on Saturday September 21st, at 3:30pm. It will be two hours long and included a rubber knife and Pizza dinner at the end of the seminar. The adults will have theirs on Thursday September 19th at 7:45pm. The seminar will also be two full hours and include a rubber knife… No pizza though. Lol.

Second: Our next two Gradings are as follows. The next one is on August 24th at 4:00pm. It will be a smaller grading as there are many families still on vacation. The one following will be on September 28th also at 4:00pm. So if you miss the Grading coming up, there is another soon. Don’t worry.

Third: A reminder that Bell’s will be adjusting class times slightly as of October 1st. A full list of all the details will be posted tonight, so check them out and be aware they will be in effect on October 1st.

Computer :(

Published on August 17, 2013, by in News.

We had a few computer problems this week, but all the info regarding Seminars and Class Adjustments will be on line and in the Dojo on Monday. Sorry for the delay, took a few days to get everything moving.



Class Adjustment

Published on August 13, 2013, by in News.

Hello Everyone,

Sneaking ever closer to the one year mark! Come October we will be adjusting the class schedule to accommodate the growing student population. Most kids classes will have a bit more flexibility (one class slightly earlier, one slightly later), as will the adult classes. There is going to be an added Green & Blue Belt Class for the adults, because we should have a few green belts by the end of the year if all goes well 🙂 . Please don’t worry though, if you have had a class on a certain day it will remain on that day. I am also considering adding one or two afternoon classes but I can not say for certain if that will absolutely happen. All this info will be posted by the end of the week along with the Knife Self Defense Seminar information so keep those eye lids peeled! Thanks again to everyone and I look forward to the Dojo turning one year old. Have a wonderful day!




Weekly Sign For Another Week

Published on August 12, 2013, by in Uncategorized.

Another week.

CRAZY!!! The Dojo is in it’s 10th Month of operations, we have almost hit the one year mark. Firstly I want to say thank you to all the students, parents friends and family who have helped make this possible. Thank you. For our one year mark the Dojo will be having a big Halloween party for the kids and adults. My “Uncle Earl” will be coming down to help with the party and just to warn everyone there will be candy. We will also be having our second Board Breaking Seminar, hands down my favourite kind of seminar. It’s something that not a lot of people think they can do, but it is quite possible and a blast. Next month we will be having a Knife Self Defense Seminar which will come with a free rubber knife. We will host both a children’s seminar and an adults so keep you eyes peeled this week for details.

Of course, the weekly sign. Peace is found in movement. Don’t forget anything worth having is worth sweating for. Have a wonderful week and see everyone soon,


p.s. Going to watch out for those spelling errors… Super bout with that, but I am going to get better.

Weekly Sign, Grading, New Seminar

Published on August 6, 2013, by in Blog, News.

Hello Everyone,

So first thing is first, I have almost handed out all the belts from the last Grading. For those who missed the last Grading our next one is on August 24th at 4:00pm. Last one before school starts back up and everything starts settling into Fall. Again, make sure you enjoy our last half of Summer.

I am not exactly sure when, but at the end of September we will have a Knife Self-Defense Seminar, one for adults and kids. The focus is a bit different for those two groups so they will be at separate times. Each one will include a rubber knife and the the two hour seminar.

Our weekly sign is a short and sweet one. The more you put in, the more you get out. Have a wonderful week and see everyone soon,
