August 19th - Midwest Smackdown
This event is for adults and teen black belts. Held in Northern Kentucky, we leave the school at 1:00 p.m. sharp and return later that evening. It is a great opportunity to spar people from other schools before the national testing. If you are planning on doing high rank testing any time in the next year, the more of these you go to the better.
August 21st - Sunbury Buddy Day! - Sunbury
Wear you Buckeye gear or the gear of your favorite team and be prepared to have some fun. Bring a friend with you for a fun exciting class and the tailgate party after. If you bring a buddy, you and your friend both get to spin the wheel for some fun prizes.
August 21st - 22nd - Forms Clinics - Westerville
On these two dates, there is no need to bring your gear to class because what we are going to focus on is forms, forms and forms. If you get a new form or want to polish up your current form, this is the time to do it. On this day, I would like all 2nd Degree kids to come to the teen class regardless of age. Teens and adults should bring their gear to class that day.
August 26th - Summer Picnic McNamara Park 1pm-4pm
We provide the hotdogs and hamburgers and everyone brings a dish to share. We will put up a sign up sheet at the beginning of Aug. There is kickball, corn hole, and of course the biggest water gun fight of the Summer. The instructors always have something up their sleeve for the water gun fight and claim to be winners but they are the wettest in the end. The entire family is invited to this event to enjoy the fun. Because it is an event outside the school, kids are not to be dropped off.
August 31st - Buckeye Buddy Day! - Westerville
To celebrate the opening of the season, why not have a tailgate buddy day on the day of the first game? Wear you Buckeye gear or the gear of your favorite team and be prepared to have some fun. Bring a friend with you for a fun exciting class and the tailgate party after. If you bring a buddy, you and your friend both get to spin the wheel for some fun prizes.

September 20th - Break-A-Board Buddy Day
While we will be having normal classes this day, we want you to invite your friends to the 6:00 pm class. If you bring a buddy that day, instead of spinning the wheel, both you and your buddy will get to break a board at the end of class. It will be a fun day so bring a friend to class.
