Dear Parents and Families,
I am very excited to share with you that we’ve officially begun our preparation for the 6th United Uechi Invitational Karate Tournament being held on March 14th at Gordon College. This will be our dojo’s sixth year co-hosting the event and we are thrilled to be able to once again provide our students with a rare opportunity to participate in such a high quality event. We’ll be working hard over the upcoming weeks preparing our students for the tournament, and look forward to seeing the progress and growth that accompanies our efforts as all the students begin their preparations.
This tournament is open to all children in the Karate Kids program as well as all adult students. I sincerely hope that you will encourage your child to participate in the tournament, so that they can fully benefit from the process of preparing for the event. You can pick up a tournament registration form at the dojo, or print out the attached copy and return it to the dojo. As always, please let me know if you have any questions or need any assistance in filling it out. We’ll be spending a lot of time over the upcoming six weeks educating students about how the tournament will be run and how to best prepare for their kata performance.
If you have any questions about what the tournament entails and how both you and your children can get involved, please feel free to contact me. Below I’ve also included a list of FAQ’s which I think will answer many of your questions. We’re really looking forward to making this a fun and exciting event for everyone involved! Thank you in advance for your support and assistance.
Sensei Chip Quimby
