Updates

The Gopher Hill Festival is quickly approaching and, if possible, we would like ALL of our students to participate in our annual performance.  We will be working on pieces of the demo in every class between now and Oct. 7th so the students will be ready... but you must order a special t-shirt to be part of the show.  The shirt is only $12 plus tax and we encourage students, siblings, and parents to get one.  It will be a great way to show our "Dunamis Spirit."

Monday, 9/18, is the deadline to order, so call, text or email to give your size and color choice if you won't be in the school!

UNIFORM SPECIALS!

One of our martial arts suppliers is having a clearance sale on some colored uniforms.  While we can get them for a discount, we thought we'd stock up.  These uniforms could be worn during any class, but you will still need your traditional white uniform for belt testing!

How many of you would be interested in one of these great uniforms at a GREAT Price?!?












Limited sizes and quantities will be available!

First Come, First Served!
