Howzit!

My work has (fortunately/unfortunately) brought me and my family to Atlanta.  Any of the ohana out here?

The only instructor I know of in Geogia is Prof. Walt Andrae in Augusta.  I don't know how close that is to Atlanta, but if your interested in visiting him PM me for his email address.

Thanks Professor.  Augusta is a ways out from the ATL, but once we get settled in, it might be worthwhile to visit him occasionally.

Happy Holidays.

It's a bit of a trip, but Professor Andrae is a fantastic teacher and a fountain of useful knowledge.  I do suggest contacting him ahead of time because he runs a fairly busy schedule and does not have a regular "class" as such.

Walt is a great teacher.  I studied and received my brown under him.  Because of his teaching I was ultimately able to achieve my 1st degree BB.  I think I may possibly be the only other Kaju BB in the ATL area (Kennesaw).  My personal email is iqknowles@yahoo.com if you would like to know more about Walt.  I don't think he actually holds classes anymore.

Good to hear from you, Mr. Knowles.  I knew there had to be some Kaju bro or sis out here. 

I'm gonna try and get myself ready for the Battle of Atlanta, so I may touch base.

Any update on schools in Atlanta since this post?  We have a student looking for summer training in Southwest Atlanta.

Blackshear, GA here.  Close to the Okefenokee Swamp in Waycross, GA and a hour away from Jacksonville, FL.  My style is Kai Ling Do and teacher Sifu Lee Tipps.  My teacher is from San Diego, CA where our style's founded by Sigung Gary Reignhardt.  I was starting to think we were all alone out here in Southeast U.S because a lot of people unfortunately don't know what Kajukenbo is around here.
