2. SPRING TOURNEY
HSK�s 20th annual spring tourney is scheduled for Saturday, May 17, from 9 am to 2 pm at Noelani cafetorium. ALL MEMBERS ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE!!! Each member will be competing in two kata events: 1) age groups and 2) colored belts. All green belts and above will also be expected to compete in the kumite event. Each event will be further divided into smaller categories, depending on the number of participants.
To help with the cost of the trophies, each member will be required to pay a small entry fee. White, yellow, and blue belts will compete in the kata events only, and will pay $10, while green belts and above (kata and kumite) will pay $15. Payment should be made as soon as possible to your branch instructor!
TRAIN HARD AND PREPARE YOURSELVES!!!
3. YELLOW / BLUE BELT EXAM
HSK�s next scheduled exam for all members seeking yellow or blue belt ranking will be on Saturday, May 10, from 9 am to 12 pm at Noelani. Those planning to take the exam should prepare themselves well. White belts at all branches have been working very hard in preparation of their very first exam, and should do well.
For the information of our newer members, and as a reminder to all our �veterans�, satisfactory school reports are a prerequisite to exam-taking. Each member must receive an �S� or better in all three categories to qualify to take exams (an �S-� is not acceptable). School reports will be issued to all school-aged yellow and blue belts the last week of April.
TRAIN HARD AND DO WELL IN SCHOOL!!
IT�S YOUR TICKET TO SUCCESS!!!
4. NOELANI CLEAN-UP
Noelani school�s annual clean-up is scheduled for Saturday, April 26, from 8 am to 12 pm. HSK is asking all Manoa dojo adults to help with this annual event, which involves cleaning the very cafeteria that we train in.
HSK reminds those who are planning to help to be sure to wear your HSK t-shirts and to remember to sign in on clean-up day. No training on this day!
