I’m excited to announce that we’re hosting our first EVX Fall Fest!
On Oct 23rd from 10am to 2pm we’ll have a section of the parking lot blocked off for bounce houses, fun, games, and prizes. This is a family event, open to family, friends, and the neighborhood. The activities are free for all, but some activities will require a ticket to earn a prize; EVX kids will be given a number of tickets before the event for a chance to win prizes. More details to come!
We’ll also be holding our first in-house tournament that morning, starting (tentatively) at 9:30 am for Dragons and Warriors. Divisions include point contact sparring, grappling, form, and self-defense demos. Get your kids ready to show their skills!
Additionally, this kind of event takes people-power. We’re looking for members and parents who could volunteer at least 2 hours of their time to supervise a game or work a booth; it’s simple and includes collecting tickets, handing out prizes, etc. Also, we could use help earlier that morning in setup (tents, bounce houses, tables, etc). If you can assist in our event, please contact Shihan Josh asap.
By our state exemption, children 5 years old and above are allowed to be dropped off at our facility. However, it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure the child walks into the dojo. Please do not assume the door is unlocked and drop off your child unattended. Officially, we open 15 minutes before class time,…
Slightly contradicting a popular paradigm of self-discipline, I am offering a different idea of what it means to be disciplined, or more so, to practice discipline. Mistakenly we often look at people as either disciplined or not, “He is a disciplined person!” However, it’s not something you were born with; it is not a genetic…
