Thank you for finding so many new and creative ways to help us in our karate training this year. You offered us on-site day camp, group privates, special events, and you were available for private lessons at the same price as the other instructors. We may not show you all of the bumps and bruises to bodies and egos from our time at your dojo but we are very thankful for these as well.

Last Saturday was Rigby Karate Academy's Christmas Shiai and then Black Belt Banquet celebrating Sensei Rigby's 40th year of having a dojo. I was honored to be promoted to Go Dan, 5th. My previous +17 years of training with Sensei Klinger at East West Karate prepared me well to be accepted at another exceptional dojo, which was recommended to me by Sensei. I look forward to seeing all my friends at East West in the New Year. In the meantime everyone have a Merry Christmas!
