    SUMMER 2018 KICK-OFF Eskrima Stick Making Party!

    • 23 Jun 2018
    • 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    • Madrone Picnic Area - Roberts Regional Park, Oakland, CA

    The Eskrima stick making Party and Potluck will be held June 23, 2018 from 12 - 5 pm at the Madrone Picnic Area at Roberts Regional Park in Oakland. Click here for park information and directions.


    The event is open to all Oakland Kajukenbo Kwoon students and their families. We will be gathering at the Madrone Picnic Area and bowing in at noon. There will be a short training for everyone-students and their family and friends. Then Chief Instructor Lynn Keslar will help the whole training community lay a solid ground for a summer full of learning and growth and give instructions on how to begin making an eskrima stick for your own practice.

    We will eat together from about 1pm until we close the party at 5pm. There is a public pool so bring swim trunks. There is also a playing field so also bring balls and other games that everyone can enjoy.

     Students participating in Summer Section 2 - Eskrima from July 10 - 19, 2018 are strongly encouraged to come and make sticks they can break in this summer. 

    Please sign up to help with setup, cleanup, and/or bring a dish or drink to share https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16PUJr4RxRXHIvJjcVon1E_ddT728j9Ij7CDKtl0YjOI/edit?usp=sharing

    Tonight, Tuesday June 19th, is the first class of the Oakland Kajukenbo Kwoon Summer Training Session. Everyone age 12 and older is welcome-curious community members, new beginners, ranked colored belts or Sifus! 

    Classes will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 8pm. The Summer Training Session is broken into three two week intensive study sections.

    Section One   June 19, 21, 26, 28 Judo and Jujitsu

    Section Two  July 10, 12, 17,19 Eskrima

    Section Three July 24, 26, 31, August 2 Skills and Practice for Public Kajukenbo Demonstrations

    Students are welcome to come to any and all of the summer training schedule, drop in the middle of a given section or only participate in one section. Balance that openness with the understanding that training in the martial arts demands repetition of basic skills, building relationships with partners and the concentration that implies in order to benefit from the effort. Choose a training schedule that is possible but challenging and stick to it.
