I see you have some students of Dave ie Ticky. He was me next door neighbor growing up. I was twelve studying Wado Ryu and he fans just become the English coach. Did he ever tell you the story of the robber and the katana?
Being able to train "with" Sensei Greg and everyone in the community again is such a great feeling, knowing that, while we are apart, we are really together. We may be in our own homes (possibly many miles from one another) but we are one unified front. Train hard everyone, train on your own with the pre-recorded videos too. It's important to keep doing physical things while in our homes. Stay healthy and continue practicing.
Bryce and I just finished the 9th kyu online training from Sensei Greg Rubinson. Very good practice and training. Origatogozaimasta!
How is my kata guys?😅
After spending half my life training with you all, I moved four hours away for college and I didn't realize until today how much being away from the dojo took out of my life. It was so good to train with everyone again, I miss you all!

Please note that training on Mondays and Wednesdays starting tonight and until further notice will be on Zoom. Training time is 5:00-6:00 (PDT) for everyone; brown and black belts should plan on staying an additional half hour or so. All Wado Academy members and friends are welcome, not just Westchester/AWKA students, although the focus of the training will be on the needs of Westchester/AWKA students.

The link will be the same every Monday and Wednesday so please make a note of it: https://ucla.zoom.us/j/98139287841

If you log in from the Zoom website, you can use this meeting ID#: 98139287841

Please try to use a computer laptop or desktop with as big a monitor as possible. You will have trouble seeing if you try to just use a phone.

Please be on time. Once we bow in, you should turn your microphones off. Be sure to position your camera so that I can see as much of your body as possible. I prefer it if you can place your camera on something that is chest-height, rather than putting it on the floor and tilting it up at you.

If you have a question during class, please feel free to ask. I will also leave a little time at the end of each class for questions.
