There's only one day a year where the dojo is filled with chocolate, candy, more candy, (did we mention chocolate?), candy canes (yes, they're candy but they deserve their own mention), and an assortment of Christmas treats.
And if you don't know what panettone and torrone are, then you're truly in for a wonderful experience!
Yes, it's time for the Dojo Annual Christmas Party – the 2023 edition!
This year, the Dojo Holiday Party will be held on Saturday, December 16th.
As per tradition, this is also the same day as the last rank-testing of the year.
(As a point of trivia, this is the eleventh-year anniversary of holding both events on the same day – in 2011, the year of the founding of the dojo, those two events were held on separate days).
The party starts when the dojo opens at 11AM and continues throughout the day to around 4PM.
All Goju karateka and family members are invited to attend, share some snacks, cheer-on the kids rank-testing (adult testing of course is a closed event), and share in the joy of the season!
