It was probably the worst weather conditions so far of the year. A whiteout in Syracuse and the surrounding areas. All classes ran as normal at Tai-Kai. I wasn’t sure if a lot of students would show up,but 30 warriors showed up tonight to train. There were Black Belts, Brown Belts, Purple Belts, Blue Belts, and White Belts there to train. It was a great night of training and it brought students even closer to train on a night such as this. I am proud of Tai Kai and the students for having such a great showing on a night such as this. Everyone deserves a BIG Pat on the back.
