All Team HK students who can make it this Friday(Nov. 28) to Manoa Valley District Gym #2, 2721 Kaaipu Ave. Honolulu, HI 96822 at 5pm. Students will meet at University Square at 4:30pm and carpool down to the gym at 4:45pm. Those who miss the carpool will just have to meet the team at the gym. This is to help George Kotaka to set up the mats for the international tournament held the following day on Saturday, Nov. 29th. Students will be asked to haul mats into the gym and then set up a total of 7 rings. George will coordinate the formation of all 7 rings and make this process run smoothly. Mat set up will take approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours to complete. Your help will be greatly appreciated by George and the rest of the IKF family.
Also I wanted to thank all members of Team HK for all their support in my trip to Tokyo. Sorry for taking up mat space during your training sessions but I do appreciate all the time and consideration. Thanks to Kyle for hands-on training with my judo throws. Thanks to Kevin and Nick as well. Most of all, I would like to thank Sensei Todd for being my BAHDY. You got my utmost respect as a friend and as a martial artist.
