Sensei LJ Veszi from Saskatoon was selected as one of the Middleweight members of the team. Congratulations Sensei LJ! The media release is attached for your perusal.
Have you been working on your karate during the summer?
It only takes a few minutes to run through the katas you know and go through a few techniques. You want to keep working during our off-season so that you’re ready to start where you left off when the regular season begins again in September.
You can work from the ground up. Begin by practicing your stances. Make sure they are deep and stable. Use a digital device propped up on a sofa or a fence and record yourself so you can see what you are doing. From there you can add techniques like tsukis and geris or even create your own combinations. Keep it interesting and you will stay interested!
See you at the dojo!
