Sensei Louis Jemison passed away peacefully at 2:15am on Wed 7/28/21 from complications of pancreatic cancer. Sensei Jemison always had lessons to give, stories to tell, and a life he happily shared with all who crossed his path. His generosity was never ending and his smile genuine and warm. Sensei, thank you for sharing so much with so many of us.


This coming week, training will be at 6pm on Thursday 7/8 rather than on Monday.


For those that would like to train with us, meet us at 6pm at Torrey Meadows Neighborhood Park on Monday night. Please bring a bo if you have one.


What better way to celebrate the New Year than a socially distanced training tonight at 6pm in the park?! See you there and please bring your bo if you have one.


Socially distanced training tonight at 6pm in the park. See you there!


NEW TIME & LOCATION: 6pm at Torrey Meadows Neighborhood Park on Monday night.


With the sun setting a bit earlier each evening, training on Monday night at Hilltop Community Park will now start at 5:45pm.


Due to the unhealthy air quality in PQ today, tonight's class is cancelled. See you all next Monday night.


Looking forward to seeing everyone again at training at 6pm on Monday night at Hilltop Community Park!


We will not have training on Labor Day next week and instead will meet on Tuesday, 9/8, from 6pm - 7pm at Hilltop Community Park. Our Monday night training will resume on 9/14 at 6pm.


"Train with diligence, tolerance, patience and an upright state of mind. Live with honor, love, compassion and a gentle heart. Seek pleasant sensations, enthusiasm, a sense of belonging and significance but most of all remember to live the present as if there is no other." ~ Sensei Raymond Castilonia (1945 - 1999)


Please come join us tonight, Monday 8/17/20, at 6:30pm at Hilltop Park. We will socially distance and there will be no partner work. Please bring your bo; we will have some extra available if you do not have one. See you tonight!

I wanted to share with you that our dear friend and student David Prouty passed away yesterday morning after a long battle with cancer.

David was a gentle soul and a wonderful person. He was a martial artist who will always be remembered for his love of children and cooking, his love of the sword and the kata Kensei, his searing kiai that could even scare the sensei, his love of the natural world, his easy smile and willingness to help others and of course his multiple 1st place finishes in the World Championships of Tai Chi push hands at Arrowhead Camp.

As Dave neared the end of his life, although his body was failing, he maintained his positive attitude and optimism, his sense of humor and his easy smile--a tribute to his years of training.

We will miss Dave, but his energy and influence on our lives will still be here.


Sensei Paul Billimoria
