BIG NEWS Benefiting Kickboxers and Youth BBC Students

Oscar web picWe have a new face on the mat (new to some folks, and familiar to others…).  Beginning immediately, Mr. Oscar Gomez will be teaching Black Belt Club class and Kickboxing Classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  Oscar Gomez is the Physical Education and Bushcraft teacher at Easton Country Day School.   Oscar is a 2nd degree black belt and has been studying Karate, kickboxing and self-defense for over 16 years.  Nature and the outdoors has always been his passion, from woodworking to camping and primitive skills.

We are incredibly happy to see Oscar, and his enthusiasm for the martial arts back on the Dojo Fairfield Team.  His ability to provide a challenging workout in a personalized, instructive manner make him one of the most sought after instructors in the area — we are excited and fortunate that we are able to provide our students with this incredible training opportunity.

Please give him a hearty welcome at your next class!

 


 August Testing!

Last night we had our August test -and we could not be any prouder of our students.  Our youth Bo-Black students had the opportunity to perform a reverse wrist-lock technique on Mr. Max, who (unfortunately for us is heading back to UConn this weekend for his undergraduate education in physics).  We also had a few students earn their Yellow belt – which is always a joy to watch.  Keep up the great work, folks!

Congratulations and thank you everyone who came out to support the folks testing!
