He is a 3-time member of the Shintani National Team having represented Canada in a number of events.

Exciting Workout!

Great work on Tuesday, everyone! It’s so nice to see so many karateka on the floor working hard and sweating hard! And you never know what’s going to happen to make the evening even more exciting! All’s well that ends well!

Keep up the good work everyone and try to practice at home between classes. It only takes a few minutes to work a few techniques and run some “carpet kata” at home.

See you at the dojo!

Workout Tonight!

Just a reminder that our regular workouts resume tonight.

We’ll be trying out our new “Barcode” sign-in method today for the first time! Please be patient with us as we implement these gradual changes in an effort to better organize the operation of our club.

Just for your information… So far we have registered 80 students from age 5 to 45! We are so lucky to have a great group of karateka working together in our part of the province. Keep working hard, everyone!

See you at the dojo.


Tomorrow is the first night of karate classes for the 2013-14 season!

The “Just for Kicks” (JFK) group is from 6:30 – 7:30 pm and the regular Adult/Jr group is from 7:30 – 9:00 pm.

If you were unable to attend the “Registration Night” last week, don’t worry! You can still register tomorrow at the workout.

If you, or your student, don’t have a gi then you can simply wear sweats and a t-shirt. Plain colors are best and sweats that have elastic cuffs or do not drag under the feet are preferred.

See you at the dojo!

Great Turnout!

What a great turnout to our Registration Night tonight! It was nice to see so many familiar faces returning to our dojo. It was equally nice to see many new faces of different ages joining our club for the first time. Thanks for coming out!

If you couldn’t make it tonight, don’t worry! You can still register at a regular class.

Regular classes begin next Tuesday, September 17, 2013. The Just for Kicks class (age 5, 6, and 7) at 6:30 and the Adult/Jr class at 7:30 pm.

See you at the dojo!
