As the kata has been removed from our testing parameters, we have added a kata class for those students interested in keeping up their skills for tournament purposes. Starting in January, Sensei Denee will be teaching a ½ hour of kata on Mondays from 6:45 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. that will be open to all youth excel students. There is no extra charge for this class for the students that are on the “silver” program, however will be subject to a drop-in fee for those students that are attending only once a week.

On behalf of Scheer’s Martial Arts and the SMAA Board,, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Hope to see you Sunday!
