News from the CKA  5/2/09
On Saturday April 25, 2009, I along with Sensie Tyler met with the Colorado Karate Association Board to discuss the recent decision to drop grappling from their venue. The Board has decided not to reverse their decision to drop grappling fronm their event. However we proposed that the CKA look at adding Sport Jujitsu to their event line up. The board was very favorable to this concept. USA-Jujitsu will be working with the CKA to introduce Sport Jujitsu at the state level. We at USA-Jujitsu are very excited about this as it will allow our studenht to compete the way we train. More to come on this.
