As a reminder, whether it be holidays or inclement weather, the school where we have classes follows the same schedule as Merrick schools. So, as a rule of thumb, if schools are closed for whatever reason, there won't be Judo class that day.
Now that school is back up and running, so is Judo, and we will start again tomorrow, Wednesday, November 14.
See you there.
