Master Charles is taking action to fix the tuition payment and registration link and he is also forwarding it to the DSSI webmaster momentarily.  So, by the time you get this message you will be able to go back to either the site or to and execute your tuition payments thank.
I am asking that you communicate with me at this email address
Outlook is once again sending my DSSI emails directly to spam even though you are all on my allowed listings.  I am looking into fixing this issue.  I apologize for any inconvenience.

Next belt test is 17 April 2021
Sarah for Blue Belt, Leia for Green Belt, Little Dragons for Gold Belt.  Please submit your registration forms at your earliest convenience thanks.

First class of each month will be devoted to kata bunkai and one step applications or, how the power of kata is effective in combat.  These sessions will enhance your understanding and performance of kata and life protection skills.

Next class we meet at the Pearl Club instead of Makai Center.  An MWR representative has booked our access for the entire month.  No new schedule or time change has been yet confirmed.  We will have lots of space for sure and brand new mats thanks to Master Charles.

The DSSI competition team from the Shihan Cesar Fernandez school AKA the "Boys of South Florida" competed at the 5th Annual Space Coast Winter Tournament of Florida the last weekend of January, 07.

Shihan Cesar Fernandez taking 1st place in weapons division, Sensei Antonio Gomez taking 2nd place in weapons, and Sensei Gregorio Gomez taking 4th place in weapons are all all DSSI students winning at this tournament showing the pride of the DSSI Okinawa Kenpo Karate Kobudo system.

Also in Kata, Shihan Cesar Fernandez returns and takes 1st in Kata division for the 2nd time for the past 2 years.  Sensei Antonio Gomez takes 3rd in his division in Kata , and Sensei Gregorio Gomez takes 4th in his division.  For the grand champion Shihan Cesar Fernandez takes 2nd but, the crowd did not seem very happy with that as they thought he had won the Grand Championship for the second year in a row.

Congratulations to the Boys of South Florida that are representing DSSI.
