Hey dojo fam! I’m going live on zoom at 6:00pm tonight. Going over the cover step in boxing and creating angles...and of course an excellent workout as always. See you guys there! πŸ€™πŸΌ
Just wanted to drop a quick line to everyone at SASDA and those who travelled from Scott Gonzales's Arizona studio, to attended this weekends SASDA Kenpo camp. First of all, what a great experience for students and instructors alike, this is the second camp I have been fortunate to attend and they just keep getting better. That said, I want you to know that it is you guys that make the camp not the instructors, for we can not do it without your participation and enthusiasm, and of that you all excelled, outstanding. The comraderie and spirit every one brought to camp, along with the high standards shown by yourselves and instructors are the foundation on which our Kenpo family grows, salute to all. It is always an honor and privilege to teach and share the mats with both students and instructors, I look forward to doing so again, thank you. And last but not least, a special thanks to our host Donnie Jeffcoat for inviting me, you have created something special at SASDA, congratulations, a true family, and I am sure I speak for my fellow instructors when I say the Kenpo flame is burning brightly. Salute.
Sat in on my first class last night. Studying martial arts something I wanted to do ever since I was little but was always too scared. Even now, I psyched myself out several times before coming in last night due to whatever fears my mind had for me.

But, I made it.

I didn't think I would be able to make it the full 90 minutes, and there were several moments where almost couldn't.

But, I made it.

I may hurt for the next few days β€” and now realize where my physical limits are.

But, I made it.

Thank you for creating an environment that is not only challenging but inspires success.
Hi Donnie

We spoke when you were in the UK at Damian Abbott's seminars. I'm in LA from 16 Nov for a while and would like to visit your school in North Hollywood on Sat 18 Nov.

My email address is [email protected] and grateful if you could contact me.

Thank you.

Cheers,

Diane

CINCO ESTILOS URBAN ARNIS class tonight! In keeping with the them of "Street Week," please wear your regular attire tonight in class (you can wear your Cinco Estilos shirt, tho :) ), bring a belt (your uniform belt will do). And let's get URBAN, tonight! 7PM! Thank you!
Thank you Sensais for an awesome test day!

Whether you want to get in shape or unleash the warrior within you, SASDA has the perfect training program. Come try out a free week of group and private instruction and let the Martial Arts begin to transform your life!

The instructors at SASDA provide personalized self-defense programs that will accommodate your goals, personality, and lifestyle. We teach Kenpō Karate. Our syllabus blends speed, agility and circular movements of the art of Kung Fu with the harder, more linear, 'striking art' of Japanese Karate to produce an incredibly effective self-defense system. Our students experience the beauty of the trad

A few more pictures of the recent tests here at the dojo. There was a huge amount of heart and dedication that went into these new ranks. Job well done and let the road to black belt continue. Congratulations!

Congratulations to this group of loyal and dedicated students! They endured a 4 1/2 hour, grueling advanced test, coming out on the other end of a challenging evening stronger, sharper and closer to their common goal. This awesome crew will be our dojo's next generation of black belts and I couldn't be more excited for them! A SUPERB test and excellent presentation by all!

10 Years! We've made it!! Thank you to all of the families that have supported SASDA throughout this journey, we could not have done this without you. Thank you to all of the instructors that have walked through our doors to share some martial knowledge. And a big Thank You to the hundreds, if not thousands of students that have trained on our mats. You have learned, sweat, worked hard and have all become part of the SASDA family. Our dojo and small part of the community has grown and we could not be more proud of all the work accomplished in the past decade!

Here are a few shots of our 10 year celebration and hoping we can do this again in another 10 years! Whether you're a current student or haven't been in the dojo in a while, you will be forever part of this family and we can't wait to see you all again soon!

Sometimes the first test or two are the most important for character growth. These kids pushed hard, practiced and really let it out during their belt test. Job very well done for this group of ninjas. Congratulations!

Martial Arts is an individual journey that allows growth in mind and body. We take class together but as the journey progresses, the student learns not only about self-defense but about character development. Each one of these martial artists have grown so much since their last test. Congratulations.
