We are looking forward to our upcoming Black Belt Alumni (BBA) Class this Sat., Feb 28 at 1:30pm. This class is open to all Kadan & PaaMano Eskrima Black Belts regardless of physical fitness level or current physical ability. The BBA Class is open for as much or as little physical participation as inspired. Our BBA are free to bring a donation and either participate in class or visit and reconnect.
The main goal of our monthly class is to re-inspire our inner Black Belt by giving back and by reconnecting to the 5 tenants of Taekwondo 1. Courtesy 2. Integrity 3. Perseverance 4. Self-control and 5. Indomitable Spirit and the most important Kadan Black Belt tenants of all "Living with the attitude of gratitude and Think globally and act locally". Our monthly get-togethers are about being of service, reconnecting with old friends, making new ones and putting good-works into action.
As many of you know our family is all about adopting shelter and rescue animals. We have three shelter dogs ourselves. (You can learn more about our first foster story on the I Love Shelter Dogs Blog.) The organization we are helping this month is Doggy Hydeaway Rescue Rehab in Valley Center, CA. They are an amazing organization dedicated to helping dogs that have been through challenges and traumatic experiences find their balance, relax and learn to be happy healthy dogs again. They also work with rescues. They are committed to rehabilitating and helping find homes for dogs that would other wise have no other options. You can take a look at some of the adorable dogs that are looking for their forever homes here http://www.doggyhydeaway.com/Adoptable_Dogs.php
"Doggy Hydeaway Rescue Rehab
is a home-based facility specializing in behavior rehabilitation, modification and socialization. We are located on a beautiful 10 acre property in Valley Center CA. Our rural setting provides a completely natural habitat where a stressed out dog can decompress in a quiet atmosphere. There is ample shade throughout the property due to an abundance of trees. We also have a fully enclosed swimming pool which provides a great way to keep cool in the summer months, or for a no impact way of exercising dogs with arthritis or hip issues." We are asking for donations of blankets or/and Diamond Natural Lamb & Rice Kibble.
Remember you don't need to train in class to participate in the #KadanBBA class, the studio is open to those that want to participate by stopping by with a donation and a visit as well. We'll even have some seats outside for the Black Belts that want to support with a donation and a visit instead of training. It's all about connection and giving back. We hope you'll be inspired to join us, you'll be helping a great organization and we'd love to see you.
