May and June News!

It has been a busy past two months. Here are some of the highlights:

Gage Sensei and His Family at JMAC!

After spending nearly 28 years training in the Greater Tokyo area, the head of the Nihon Jujutsu system, John Gage Sensei, has moved to Ann Arbor, MI. It is a privilege to have the most accomplished living representative of the late Sato Shizuya Sensei teach and train at the Japanese Martial Arts center. The Ann Arbor martial arts community is honored!

The Lotus Blossom Fundraiser

The Japanese Martial Arts Center did an excellent job raising funds for the Nepal Earthquake Relief. Almost $2000 were raised between the Dexter Rotary Club and JMAC.

Kids Karate Promotions

On June 6, the Kids Karate class had a belt promotion. Congratulations to promoted candidates!

9th Anniversary

On June 20, the Japanese Martial Arts Center will celebrate its 9th Anniversary! It will be a potluck-style event, complete with a bouncy house and games. This is a family-friendly event and certain to be the talk of the year!

In the morning, there will be a special Gage Sensei Seminar. This is open to JMAC members exclusively.
