The new decade is here and so are we! We hope you all enjoyed the Holiday Break with your friends and family and are feeling rejuvenated and motivated to start hitting those 2020 goals in all aspects of your lives, including your Martial Arts training! Keep reading to take a look at what's coming up this month at the Dojo.
But first, a recap! Before heading into the break we had a busy December, beginning with the USSD Winter Orange County Tournament at Santiago Canyon College in Orange. Team San Clemente certainly made our presence known by dominating in all of the Martial Arts events (Katas and Point Sparring). Congratulations to everyone who competed, and a huge "Thank You" to all of the friends and family who came out to support the Team!

Our last event of the decade, the annual Dojo Family Potluck, was a celebration of our hard work and accomplishments over the year. Great food, great fun, and we also were able to fill the donations box with toys for FAM to help struggling families in our community have a merrier holiday season. Thank you to everyone who pitched in for the potluck and toy drive!
Another Congratulations goes out to Wyatt T., our final Student of the Month winner of 2019! Great work, Wyatt!
Now looking ahead to the coming months, some of our students will get a chance to hit some of their 2020 #DojoGoals very soon at our first Belt Tests of the year.
The first Teen/Adult Belt Test is scheduled for Friday, January 31st at 6:00 pm.
The Kids Belt Test is scheduled for Saturday, February 1st at 10:00 am.

This year's self-defense summer camp is scheduled for Wednesday, August 5th through Friday, August 7th, and registration includes entry to the Ninja Sleepover on Saturday, August 8th for all of our registered students.
