Wear your uniforms and belts for the next 2 weeks if you have them.
A reason not to go to Panera, Starbucks, Target, or Chipotle …
Panera joins a growing list of food and retail chains that are trying to make their establishments gun-free zones
“WASHINGTON — Panera Bread on Monday asked customers not to bring firearms into its restaurants, joining a growing list of retail and fast-food chains that have declared their establishments gun-free zones.
The company said it wants to ensure that “customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome” in its restaurants.
“We ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer,” the eatery chain, which boosts 1,800 locations in the United States and Canada, said in a statement Monday.
“Panera respects the rights of gun owners, but asks our customers to help preserve the environment we are working to create.”
Chains such as Starbucks, Target and Chipotle already have adopted guidelines asking patrons not to bring guns into their locations following pressure from gun control advocates, principally Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
Panera’s decision followed talks with the gun control group, which is funded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.”

“Two men called cops when another man began shooting at them. Fair enough. Oh, but wait. There’s a bit more to the story here. It turns out the two men had allegedly broken into the third man’s home and began beating him on the head with a baseball bat. He eventually got away, grabbed his gun, and fired two warning shots in the air. This is when the alleged intruders actually called police.” …

Class tonight (Mon Aug 25th) is canceled due to the heat index.
Class tomorrow (Tues Aug 26th) is at my house, since it is usually a small class.
Class will resume at “HQ” on Thursday, unless the heat index is in the 100’s again. In that case, class will be at my house on Thursday Aug 28th also.
No regular class on Monday, September 1st since that is Labor Day. If anyone is interested in getting together in a park or something for a picnic and/or workout then let me know ASAP.
Nice sheepdog reference on the back.

Please see the message below from Randy Breadon regarding the upcoming seminar and Rakkasans board meeting at CODA Martial Arts on Sunday August 17th.
>> The turn-off from Old Gravois Road is at the blue US Post Office mailbox. <<
CODA is in the back of “Gravois Industrial Plaza”
“After a greatly needed break for many of us we would like to invite all to an upcoming free seminar at CODA on Sunday August 17th from 1:30- 3:00 PM that will include self defense, knife defense, and multiple attackers.
We will also have a Rakkasans meeting immediately after (at 3:00 pm) that everyone is welcome to attend (especially the Senior Board Members). It will be a short meeting (30 minutes).
According to the board member’s response to our last email it seems that all agree to nominating the next generation of Rakkasans board members. It is a good next step in Rakkasans and in order to take that step quickly we hope the seminar and meeting will accomplish two things at once.
Our meeting will offer the opportunity to discuss Rakkasans, the board, how it operates, among other things. At that time the senior board members can discuss nominations for the additional board members.
I would suggest that only the senior board members make nominations, while taking into consideration, not only their experience, but also their teaching ability. And for clarification those board members referred to as ‘senior’ are 6th Dan and above. Nominees should rank 4th and 5th Dan.
Any black belts that are due for promotion to 4th Dan and above need to submit their thesis before this meeting to the Rakkasans board or to me and I will be glad to forward it to the board.
Hope to see you there. An RSVP might be helpful.
Brother John Glendening says this needs to go on the website.
The language in the song is not exactly work-appropriate.
Thank you to everyone who helped make our last Gathering of the Ohana a success!
Also, congratulations to everyone on their promotions!
It is official, thanks to Doug, Ms. Cindy and Steve! Thanks all.
Doug’s house: 513 Oakwood Dr, Fenton, Mo 63026
We’ll shoot for meeting at Doug’s around 18:30.
Doug is making ribs and Steve is grilling chicken, I think. Guests are encouraged to bring drinks, side-dishes, chips, etc.
We are going to eat, talk story, maybe watch a movie, whatevah.
It is our way of saying “aloha” to Adam and John who will both be out for a while.
Try RSVP so we can plan accordingly.
Mahalo nui loa!
Brother Jim sent this one.
Those of you who have seen “Kali Means to Scrape” or know anything about PTK will probably recognize the little Filipino guy.
I shared with Uncle Frank all the condolences. He is happy, thankful, and appreciative.
If folks want to send cards or gifts, they can send to:
P.O. Box 336
Blanchester, OH 45107
It will then be forwarded to Uncle Frank. If you would like to make a monetary donation you can do so at:
Paypal@ordonezkajukenbo.org and indicate in the memo line it is for the Aunty Lydia Memorial fund.

From GM Jason… I guess he did not want to spoil everyone’s holiday.
Regretfully, Aunty Lydia (Uncle Frank’s wife) passed away on Monday, June 30, 2014. The funeral and burial will be at Mililani Mauka Mortuary, on Saturday August 23, 2013 from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. Flowers can be sent there. Info to follow if you wanna send a card or gift.
Aunty Lydia was active, known, and loved by many in the Kajukenbo family. Her passing was unexpected. She will be truly missed.
Take care, God Bless.”
