Yes you read that right, we will have a Jodo workshop on the 17th of February at 20:30! Willem Neuteboom (ex Yoroshika!) and Aad van de Wijngaart from Budokai Leiden will show us the ways of Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo, the art of using the jo. For karatekas especially this workshop may be of interest, as some advanced katas use the jo as well. For participation, please register at the bottom of this post.
Secondly, as most of you probably know already, Valentine’s Day is next week. Therefore we would like to have a celebratory Pre-Valentine Drink at Cafe X on February 13th. We encourage everyone to bring their (potential 😏) uke to the drink and to the free tryout beforehand!
The Free Tryouts are next week, so as said before you can bring anyone to any of the classes! These Free Tryouts also marks the start of the Krav Maga Advanced addition to Jiu Jitsu Advanced, so bring your buddies to the training on Thursday from 19:30.
We would like to announce the next Yoroshi event for next week: the Eskrima workshop! It was one of the highlights from the Martial Arts Day, and since a lot of people were not able to try it out we invited Eskrima Rotterdam to give another training. Eskrima is a fast and direct martial art that uses sticks and knives to quickly end the fight.
It will take place on January 16, at 19:15. You are expected to wear a t-shirt instead of a gi, as the sticks can get stuck behind the lapels of the gi. You can register below.
After training at 21:00, we will have this year’s first General Member Meeting. It will be a low-key get-together, mainly to give you the opportunity to give us your ideas, feedback an suggestions, and discuss the New Year’s Resolutions of Yoroshi 🎉. It will be combined with our Monthly Drink of January, so you’re also more than welcome without any input!
Please register here for the Eskrima workshop:
Sorry, the registration limit has already been reached!
We would like to announce the next Yoroshi event: a Nunchaku-do training in the Dojo on Thursday the 28th of november, at 19:15! So channel your inner Bruce Lee and get ready for some intense action! To sign up please send a mail to email@example.com, as the workshop has a limited capacity.
The event will be followed by the Yoroshi Birthday Drink, starting at 21:00 in Cafe X, since it is the 30th birthday of Yoroshi! We will have pie and a Yoroshi quiz, so make sure to drop by!
Don’t worry if you missed the Martial Arts Day, as the next event is right around the corner: Krav Maga Outdoor, on the 24th of Oktober at 19:30 (during jiu jitsu advanced). We will gather at the dojo, after wich we will venture outside in front of X and Dick will show us how to defend ourselves on the streets. This event is for Yoroshi members only, please send a Whatsapp message to Matto (+31 6 37478233) or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to join! After training Yoroshi’s 2nd monthly drink of this year will start!
We hope to see you at the Krav Maga Outdoor training, or otherwise around 20:45 in Café X!
