You can bring chairs to watch and hang out in, but we will also bring a cooler of drinks and have some tables and chairs set up.  Bring sunscreen!

It might be hot out, so you can wear your karate t-shirt instead of your uniform top.

Students can also bring their own boards to break - boards should be cut 10 - 12'' x 12''
