The Belt Ceremony has been scheduled for Saturday, October 23 at 11:30 AM. Adult classes are cancelled for that day. The ceremony will start at 11:30 AM and everyone that attends must be in their GI.

If you are a Blue Belt or above you should 100 % be there to show support. So lets have as many people there as possible.
