UPDATE FROM SENSEI HOLZBAUER – December 7th, 2018
To all ABKA servants of our Lord Jesus Christ:
We will have our first Warrior Lodge workday.
When: December 22nd (2018) from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. – Any amount of timeyou can stay
Where: Dojo, Jennings
Who can come: Anyone breathing
What will be the work:
- Logging red oak and cedar trees
- Plaining the logs
- Cutting and squaring the logs
- Milling the beams and lumber on the sawmill.
What should I bring with me:
Chainsaw (if you have one) along with gas mixture and chin oil, bag lunch, gloves, dress for the weather. Only if it’s pouring rain will we cancel and you’ll be notified in advance.
In order to organize this for maximum effort and efficiency, you’ll need to let us know in advance if you plan to help, how long you’ll be able to work, and if you’re bringing a saw. To keep me informed (since I’m in TN and NC from Dec. 8-17) please contact Charles Mashek, our building director at email@example.com or (479)477-0754 or Christa, our chief minion at firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll notify Mr. Mashek.
There will also be a lot of firewood cut you can have for free, to the workers so if you need some, bring your pick up or trailer. I hope to see many of you reporting for duty that day.
Faith without works is dead,
UPDATE FROM SENSEI HOLZBAUER – November 15th, 2018
In June, Sensei Holzbauer broke ground on Warrior Lodge. When it is complete, the lodge will have a downstair dinning/meeting/training area with just a little more square footage than the dojo annex. There will also be a kitchen and shower rooms down stairs, two separate sleeping lofts upstairs, and the facility will be climate controlled so it can be used year round. The lumber used will be from three log cabin kits plus timbers he will cut off of his property and the dojo property. Much of the furniture will be hand made by himself and some of our other wood working black belts. There will also be specific work days scheduled for groups to come help as time goes on. There will be plenty of opportunities to help by way of work and funding. It’s a blessing to invest in the future of ABKA and even more so when we can work together.
Here are photos of the progress:
June 11th, 2018 – ground breaking
