New Practice Location

Thursday September 1st will be the final class of practice at the Holy Cross school. After a long history of practice at the school, the Eastern School District has decided to close up the building. Sensei McDonald has been working very hard through the summer to find a new location, and we feel most things are in place. We will post the new location information as soon as everything is finalized.

Thank You for your patience during this time.
