Reopening News, Update    :-)


Shuyokan is scheduled to reopen the week of Monday, September 14th, 2020.

Email from Sensei Dye


To All Members:

I sincerely hope that all of you and your families are doing ok and holding up under these trying times.

I am very happy to announce that the Shuyokan Dojo will be re-opening to resume training starting the week of Monday, September 14th. The modified training schedule for class times and days and all other information that was originally sent out and emailed on June 9, 2020 to all members with the attachment, will remain the same as will the class times and days that each of you reserved in advance.

In addition to regular class training, the focus of the training will be in preparation for Brown and Black Belt testing that is scheduled for all of you in November as was outlined in the email to all members and sent on August 11, 2020.

Below are additional requirements for students who will be returning to resume their training:

     1. Please email me in a separate individual email as to your intention to return and resume classes no later than September 12, 2020. If I do not receive an email from you by that date I will assume that you will not be returning to Shuyokan to resume your training and your membership will be changed from Active to Inactive.

     2. As a requirement of our Dojo insurance, memberships for all returning students must be current and up to date in order to resume their training. Those members whose memberships need to be brought current and up to date will be able to do so and must be done on their first return date.

     3. All rules that were in the June 9th email attachment will remain in force.

I look forward to seeing all of you return to Shuyokan and resume your training. I have also attached another article to this email for you to read on the History of Belt Colors and Ranking Traditions. Enjoy.

Be Safe, Be Healthy
In The Spirit of Shuyokan
Sensei David A. Dye
