January 15, 2010 update: Master’s Class offered – Thursday Nights!
Mr. Soliday, 9th DAN, is offering a Masters’ Class on Thursday nights. For Black Belts that are interested in training for their next rank, being able to work out with other Black Belts, or just wanting to get back in after being out of karate for a while, this class would be ideal. Some of the highest ranking Soliday Black Belts attend this class as well as the Masters who trained Mr. Soliday – Mr. Darrell Maggard and Mr. Bob Santine.
