Last Day of Session 1

Today is the last day of Session 1. You can bring fees for the next session today if you wish. The sooner the better! Session 2 begins next Tuesday, December 4, 2018.

The grading will be coming up in early December. Make sure you are practicing and staying in good karate shape! Remember… “Don’t treat a grading as if it were like any other class. Treat every class as if it were a grading.” – Sensei Rathe. With this attitude, you will always be ready for a grading.

See you at the dojo!


Great Weekend!

Thank you and congratulations to everyone who helped make our tournament an outstanding success! It was great to see so many people attend our tournament and clinic.

We are so proud of everyone who competed in the tournament. It was great to see so many of our students step out of their comfort zone and  participate. Remember… Karate is a “way”, so the journey is just as important as the destination.

As a club, we would like to say some special thanks to a few people…

Thank you to Mike Lothian at Pure Chem for the use of the BBQ! He is always happy to lend it to us and we have to fight with him to pay for it! Thanks, Mike!

Thank you to Ashton Lisitza for making the beautiful shindo for our raffle! Thanks, Ashton!

Thank you to the staff at Kuzina Restaurant in Carlyle for a wonderful supper! We had nearly 60 people for supper and you guys were great!

Now to prepare for our grading!!!!!

See you at the dojo!

Regular Class Tonight; More Tournament Prep; Jacket orders due!

Happy karate day (Tuesday)!

As we continue to prepare for our tournament at the end of the month, please remember to pick up a small item for our prize table.

There will be sign up sheets for various aspects of the tournament as well. We always need volunteers to help with scoring/timing, the canteen, etc. None of the jobs are difficult and there is lots of experienced people around to help if you have any questions, so please sign up. 

We will continue to work on tournament procedures/etiquette along with more practice in kumite and the kata you will be performing. All of this all leads up to our grading in early December! Don’t hesitate to speak to a Sensei if you are having trouble with a kata or a certain technique. They’re happy to help!

Jacket orders are due today! Please bring your order form AND payment to class.

Regular Class this week… Tournament coming up FAST!

The tournament will be here before we know it! It’s time to finalize our plans and get people into place to help out. This year, the tournament will be held on Friday, November 23, and Saturday, November 24, 2018!

We encourage everyone to take part in the tournament even if it is your first year in karate! You will meet many new people, and make new friends who will likely be your karate tournament competitors all the way through the ranks. 

The Friday night clinic is also a great place to learn some new skills. Sensei Denis will be here to lead it, and he always has new techniques to share and new ways to share old techniques!
