Summer T-shirts

During the summer months of May through September, students are allowed to wear a Dunamis Karate t-shirt in place of the full gi top. Only Dunamis Karate, Chun Kuk Do, or Black Belts for Christ t-shirts are allowed. If you do not have one of these tees, you must wear the full uniform including the gi top.

Right now we are taking pre-orders for our newest t-shirt design for summer 2010. Order before April 15 and save $ off the normal price.

Mission Trip

One of our Black Belts is going on a mission trip this summer ... You can help.

Read his story:

Hi! My name is Dani Neiderhiser and I am going on a mission trip this summer to Nazlini, Arizona. It is a Navajo Indian community, and I will be going with other teens from South Carolina Nazarene Youth International. We will be doing work projects on the church property in the mornings and helping out at a VBS (Vacation Bible School) for the children there in the evenings.

I am excited to go on this mission trip but I need to raise funds. That’s where I need your help. I would like to work for you for donations toward my mission trip. I could do yard work, do laundry, do dishes, babysit, etc.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Spring Break Boot Camp #1

We had 3 students participate in the Spring Break Boot Camp #1, Emma, Dustin & Jared. It was a tough 4 days of training ... 4 hours each day. The students sharpened their traditional skills, learned some new one steps and a new kata. They worked on break falls and forward & backward rolls. They learned some kicknastics ... Emma & Jared, by the way, can now do a very nice cartwheel. We practiced some grappling as well as the nunchucks. I have posted several videos and photos from the camp on our facebook page

The kids were real troopers, even though they were tired, they pushed through to the end and will very likely do well enough on their belt testing in a few weeks to skip a belt! Over the course of the four day camp the kids did a minimum of 500 jumping jacks, 500 situps, 250 pushups and 50 laps! WOW - that in itself is quite an accomplishment!!

I am so proud of each of them and how hard they worked!

Spring Break Boot Camp #2 starts next week, April 5th!!!
