Community service for black belts

The Mariposa Martial Arts Academy Black Belt Candidates for the 2014 Black Belt Test will be holding a Bully Proof seminar at the Oakhurst Boys and Girls Club on Thursday, November 7, at 3:30 p..m. The seminar will be geared toward Kindergarten through Fifth grade. We will teach the younger children how to deal with being bullied and what steps to take if they or someone they know finds themselves in such a situation.

While the original dojo is in Mariposa, the school also has a dojo here in Oakhurst with classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There is also a dojo in El Portal with classes on Sundays. All are welcome to attend classes to see if there is an interest in attending one of the three schools in the mountain area.
