April 2016 Newsletter

2015-tournament-1We are very excited to bring you our 19th annual Rising Dragon Tournament on April 16, 2016 (date tentative). Every first place will receive a beautiful trophy and 2nd and 3rd places will receive medals in each category.

This is a family and friendly tournament that provides all students and teachers an avenue to test their skills, improve themselves, and have fun. Students will compete by age and rank. While this is a school event, we are likely to have students from several other schools also competing.

You can pick up a tournament application online at or at the school.
