This summer has been wet and fast. Our student enrollment has ebbed and flowed like the rain waters. All in all, Our dojo is remaining steady. We have some young students with some serious dedication. We have some adult students that are just as serious and developing as well.
Our affiliation with the USMAA continues. Sensei Treem is a regional coordinator for the organization which requires outreach to other dojo that are part of the USMAA within Vermont. We are also affiliated with TUMAA out of Bloomington, Illinois. Our chief instructor and others teach at the annual training camp there. Some of our students have been visiting schools in other states and interacting with folks that study different arts, styles, or ryu. We are non wavering about our commitment to self defense and no student studies here without learning the simple basics. We adhere strongly to the philosophy that every technique we teach is defensive.
