… to each of our members who attended the Selkirk tournament this weekend!

We had 7 members make the long drive out to Selkirk to participate in the Manitoba Provincial tournament and they all represented our club very well. Good job, everyone! We’ll ask how things went for you at the workout tomorrow.

DON’T FORGET… to tie your belts properly and to line up your shoes neatly along the sides of the entry to the dojo so people aren’t tripping over shoes and stepping in watery mud in the middle of the floor as they enter the dojo.

See you at the dojo.

Duffle Bag Update

So it seems that Under Armour has changed their product line and the bags that we had previously used are no longer in production. Our supplier is meeting with the Under Armour reps to see about any availability of our bags and to look at the product that will be replacing it. Unfortunately, if we have to go with some kind of new product, it will not be available until mid-July. That means waiting until the fall to receive our bags.

We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.

Good luck to those members who are travelling to Selkirk this weekend for the Manitoba Provincial Tournament.

See you at the dojo.

Good Work and Tournament Reminder

Good work tonight, everyone!

Just another reminder about the Manitoba Provincial Wado Kai Karate Tournament being held this weekend in Selkirk, MB.

Good luck to our members who said they would be attending. Remember to leave yourself plenty of time to get there. It “Googles” around 450 KM so it will take about the same amount of time to get there as it does to Saskatoon.

Here is the info and registration forms.

Watch out for the mud!!

The parking lot at the dojo is a muddy disaster! Good luck with the white gi!

Also, remember that Sensei Jayson will be checking your belts and the shoes and boots at the door should be lined up neatly and to the side.

See you at the dojo!

Another Tournament!

The Manitoba Provincial Wado Kai Karate Tournament has a new home and date this year. The new date is APRIL 27, 2013. That’s just around the corner. So anyone into tournament mode will appreciate that!

We don’t get too many other tournaments that are within reasonable driving distance from our club so when they do come up it’s great to try to support them. We’ll have the information and registration forms at the workout on Tuesday.

According to Google Maps, Selkirk is roughly 450 km from Carlyle. About the same distance as travelling to Saskatoon. It is just north and slightly east of Winnipeg. There’s a map at the bottom of this post.

Here are the forms:

… to everyone who attended the Saskatoon/Warman tournament this weekend!

The tournament was held in the brand new Legends athletic centre in Warman, SK. What a huge and beautiful facility. The tournament was well attended, although we could have used a few more black belts, and our club was well represented in many divisions. We look forward to hearing about your tournament experience at our workout on Tuesday.

If anyone took any photos while at the tournament, please contact Sensei Kevin and we’ll find a way to share them here and on our photo page.

See you at the dojo!

Good workout yesterday!

Good work last night everyone! It was great to see so many people out on a holiday week.

Good luck to those who will be attending the Saskatoon/Warman Tournament this weekend. It’s great to see so many of you going and supporting another Saskatchewan tournament!

Remember to check the posts below and print your registration sheets early in order to speed up the registration process at the tournament.

For those who are not sure where the tournament is being held, here is a small map of Warman. From Saskatoon, Head north on Highway 11; Turn Left (West) into Warman on Central Street; Turn right onto Centennial Blvd and follow that until you see the Legends Centre on your left side.

Good luck and see you next Tuesday!
