Tueday in Texas/Sushi Fest 2005

We had our first Annual Hut Texas Sushi fest. A day that Tokyo One lost money at their Sushi Buffet for certain. Chad demonstrating excellent technique by doing the most damage to the nigiri while keeping his system free of rice.

For training Tuesday evening Shihonage was the technique dejour. also did test preparedness training for Chad And Mark. each did well, and gained insight as to what will be necessary to reach the desired ranks 3rd and 5th kyu respectively. Happy Thanksgiving!! and to you folks across the pond we will kill a turkey in your honor. Gobble till you wobble

Greetings from across the pond

Hello gentlemen,
First let me apologize for our long absence on the blog. We have had quite a rough time of it the last couple of months, but I'm glad to say that we are back on track. We had to move from the gym we were at because of a dispute with another martial arts club in town that we shared a room with. Needless to say it took a while to find another place because nobody was interested in what we had to offer. Until I went down to the Boys and Girls club and talked to the director Tammy. It must have been my keen skills in persuasion because she was happy to take us in. We worked out a deal to use the room rent free as long as the kids there could participate in our class. We were happy to oblige. The adults had there first class at the new location on Monday. The kids will start after the first of the year. This will give me time to get back into the game and give the kids a chance to start fresh after the holidays.
I must go now, it's late and I need my rest. I have practice tomorrow. It's good to be back on the mat.
