We are sorry for the VERY short notice, but classes are cancelled tomorrow night (Thursday, Dec 14th) for adults and children.

We have a scheduling conflict that will prevent our instructors from teaching tomorrow. We attempted to secure a substitute instructor, but our other dojo instructors were unavailable to fill in due to prior commitments.

Sorry again for the short notice. See you next time!
