Good job Aleckzandare Davis on earning your Orange belt.
Do you have Aikido or Kendo?
When I was a little guy I grew up an went to school with John's son, an I use to go with them threw the summers to all his dojos an trained with them daily, they were like my second family...the respect an confidence they taught me was amazing I would recommend anyone to start there if interested in martial arts, no mater your age or skill level's been many years since I walked threw the doors an bowed but now so many years later I'm getting ready to take my daughter there to join...I just hope Sensei John and his wife are still around an teaching, it would really be great to catch up on old times.
Congrats to Renshi Ray!!!
My son and I attended karate lessons from John Kraemer in the late 1980s when he taught at the Chamber of Commerce Building in South Bend WA. Even in the early years of Morning Star Karate, John had built up a reputation as one of the best instructors around the Pacific NW and at competitions his students would always prove they had the right stuff and received the most awards for their hard work. That was about 28 years ago, I was 34 and my son was 7, he is grown and I am nearly 63 . My son and I still talk about how we enjoyed taking lessons together Father and Son and thankful for the bonding time and good physical challenges we shared John if you read this , God Bless you for the decades of instruction and mentoring you have provided to our youth, young adults and families. and thank you for my wonderful memories Ron Black Sr. former officer Pacific Co Sheriff Dept.
Hello Morningstar! Sensei Pete here- I'll be in town this Saturday for at least one more guest teaching day before the busy summer of music starts for me. Be there!
Hello Morningstar! Sensei Pete here. Great class on Saturday! I know the black belts offered plenty of constructive criticism for many of you lower novice and lower advanced belts- especially on kata. Don't forget to practice at home now. To aid in this, here are a couple of insights as you train on your own: In the pics below, what stance happens even before the very first stance of Pinan Ichi (Japanese to English)? Also, for Jacob Jr., what is the translation of Passai Sho? I will take your answers next Saturday!

City of Destiny Classic

Yesterday Governor Inslee announced the closure of all Washington schools through to the end of the school year. Plus, the stay-at-home order was extended until May 4th.

Sadly, we will be cancelling the Rainier Triple Crown Classic on May 16th. This tournament will be back in May 2021.

We will continue planning for the Tri-Cities Triple Crown Classic in Kennewick in July. In early June we will re-assess the situation and will make a decision then whether this tournament will happen.

Everyone stay at home (if you can) and stay safe.
