Update from Darin Yee. . .
I’ve check out rumors about my seminar date being something other then April 9 and I want to reinforce and confirm this April 9th date.
We are going to hold this seminar on April 9th according to the email below.
Please consider coming and we’ll have a great time. I’ll get some soda and beer along with some munchies. It’ll be a great get together.
Wow!!! This year the series will include an Adult Division!!!
New England Tournament Series Ref/Official Training Sessions:
We have scheduled two seminars for referees, judges, and scorekeepers.
If there is anyone at your dojo who would like to be a scorekeeper, they would get free admission to each tournament (no spectator fees) and a ring side seat!
The first seminar will be held on Saturday, March 20 at 2:00 PM at the Brockton Uechi-ryu Karate Academy dojo. A workout is scheduled at 12:30 PM
The second seminar will be held on Friday, April 16 at 7:00 PM at the Budokan Martial Arts dojo in Plymouth. The address is 1 Park Place.
There are no fees for the workout and seminars.
If you know of anyone who would be willing to assist as a referee, judge, or scorekeeper please forward this email. We hope that you can attend one or both of these seminars.
Dear Friends and Sensei,
This year Manny Neves, Len Testa and myself have combined to run an all Uechi-Ryu tournament series. We feel this would be a great way for all our Uechi people to get together in friendly competition.
As we have done in the past, we will have an awards night to present the grand champions. The grand champions will perform their winning kata for all to enjoy. There could also be a demonstration by a few dojos who has already offer to do so.
All 3 tournament entries (competitors who will enter all 3 tournaments) will be given a discount on their entry fee and an award night pass worth ($30) and will have their name called to come onto the stage to receive an achievement award presented by the promoters.
Please go to our web site www.uechiryukaratechampionshipseries.info for more details. You can also download and print your applications from there.
Any dan rank who would like to help judge all 3 tournament will be offered a pass for our award night worth $30.
Any dojo owner with 20 or more complete 3 tournament entries will receive an award night pass.
This year we are including a adult division. Please check out our site for more information.
Please be informed the dojo addresses I have may not all be correct as some of my mailings have come back.
If your dojo would like entry forms and a poster for your poster board, please write me back with a proper address to forward our information.
Please be informed for those who have not judged tournaments in the pass, we are willing to run judging seminars at no cost to you or your dojo. We will also be running seminars for score and time keepers. Please contact me to set a date to either come to one of our local seminars or we can arrange to do one at your dojo if you have enough dan ranks interested.
