Dunamis Karate News
March 2018

Congratulations to everyone who tested and earned new ranks last week.  Your hard work and dedication are paying off.  Remember as your rank gets higher, more and more will be required of you so don’t slack off!

Thank you to everyone to who took part in our Super Hero Parents Night Out last Friday.  We had a BLAST… in fact, it was SO MUCH FUN, that we are planning another one in April so stay tuned.   Here is a link to the highlight reel if you want to get a glimpse of just how much fun we had.

We created a private group on Facebook for our students, parents, and friends.  The purpose is to ensure our students and parents stay up to date with special events and announcements.  We also want to provide valuable, entertaining, and inspiring video, pictures and written word.   Click HERE to join!  Feel free to add any other local parents/friends who may benefit from our posts!

Is a youth test easier than an adult test??  ABSOLUTELY NOT!   Our youth will be tested by the same requirements as the adult ranks and we don’t cut them any slack because they are “youth.”  Feel free to come watch as we test 5 candidates for 1st and/or 2nd Degree Youth Black Belt in the Chuck Norris System.
