Fall/Winter Uniforms

This month we transition to uniforms of gi top, pants, and belt. For help with belt tying, visit our vimeo page. Please wear lightweight shorts and tshirts under uniforms rather than denim or collared shirts. Attending class in full uniform regularly is a testing requirement. If you or your student needs a gi, contact Sensei Sharaze.
Dietary Requirements
If you or your child has a food allergy or restriction or keeps kosher, please email to let us know. We occasionally have Japanese treats for Japanese holidays or instructor birthdays and we want to be sure everyone can participate!
