Here at the dojo we are trying to raise money for Clic Sargent, to do this we are selling discount voucher cards called ‘Peel 2 Save’. The competition is this;

We are offering a complete weapon set (A Bokken, Jo, Tanto and weapon bag) to the student who can take the most orders from friends and family for Peel 2 Save cards. We are handing out order forms on the front desk and all requests must be recorded on the form. The cause is true, the prize fantastic so what are you waiting for?
