Despite reports to the contrary, there is actually one more week of class at the Lionville YMCA before the summer break. We will have adult karate at the usual 8PM time in the usual place upstairs! Please spread the word to any other students, so that no one will accidentally miss out on class. 🙂

And, don’t forget about the Saturday class on August 16, at 10:30AM! It is open to brown belts and up, and the class is held in the same upstairs training room as the adult class.

At the end of each session at the YMCA, we like to have a test to allow the children to demonstrate their growth both to the instructors and to their parents. Here are some highlights from the tests! A big thank you to everyone who contributed photos from the test and if you have pictures you’d like featured on the site, please email them to me and I will add them to the collection! 🙂
