Burke Centre Festival Volunteer Signup

Club Members,

Volunteer opportunities for the annual Burke Centre Festival are now open.  Remember this is an opportunity to recruit and demonstrate our learning.  We need a minimum of 2 people per session except opening and closing time slots where we need 4.  This is a great opportunity to work on checksheets and focused training as well as represent NoVa Isshinryu to the community.

Please click on the following web link (or copy it into your web browser if clicking doesn’t work) to go to the signup sheet:


To sign up, just follow the instructions on the page. It only takes a few seconds to do.

Thank you for volunteering!

Calendar is Updated

Nova Isshinryu Club – the calendar has been updated too reflect the dates Jim Miller Sensei announced last week.  Please check the calendar and plan to attend required events.


Be sure to get your checksheets completed ahead of testing and promotion this Friday!

Thank you!

Burke Centre Conservancy Fees

Dear Students and Instructors,

Don’t forget that the new session begins in May.  We want to be proactive about collecting fees and turning them into BCC.  Please bring your checkbooks or cash starting tonight and over the next couple of workouts to ensure that we have everyone’s part by the mid May.

Additionally, if you owe money for equipment then bring it tonight.

October 17 Seminar

Dear Instructors and Students,

just a reminder that the semi-annual seminar will be conducted in State College, PA on Saturday, October 17.  As usual we will meet at the Commons Community Center at 6am and carpool.  The members who live a little further out are encouraged to coordinate transportation so as to minimize their own travel time.  The Friday workout will be brief.  Unfortunately, the hosts are unable to allow karateka under the age of 18 to participate, but we will plan to host Sensei in our area in December.  That seminar will be open to all members of the broader PSKC association.  Attendance at both events is expected, unless otherwise clarified with the senior instructors.
