Great Last Class before Christmas!

Thank you to everyone who came out last night!

It was fun to work a bunch of different techniques and drills with everyone.

We want to wish all of our students and web site subscribers a very Merry Christmas, and all the best in the New Year!

We are already eagerly waiting for January 8, 2019 when classes resume!

The 1st Annual Regina Tournament takes place on January 25/26, 2019! We would love to see many of our members attend that event to kick off their first tournament with a bang! Details to follow soon! 

See you at the dojo!

We need help…

… bringing the cans and bottles to Redvers Sarcan on SATURDAY… Tomorrow!!

If you can come to the same shop where we did the bottle drive to help load them into trailers, that would be great!

If you can bring a truck and/or trailer with you, that would be great also!

We’re meeting at 9:30 am on Saturday, December 15 at the bottle drive shop.

See you there!

Congratulations!

… to everyone who participated in the grading on Tuesday! The process of simply participating in a grading is a great demonstration of character for a karateka.

Congratulations, also, to all those who advanced in rank. The belts we wear in the dojo are lasting evidence of the hard work we have done, and the commitment we have shown to our karate training. Way to go!

If you didn’t advance, try not to look at it like a failure. Instead, approach it as an opportunity to do even better at the next grading. Your Sensei look at many aspects of your karate development when deciding to advance your rank. Whatever the reason, they have your best karate interests at heart, and ultimately want to see you do well. Awarding a student a rank for which they aren’t ready is actually more of a disservice than a favour.

Remember… karate-do is a “way” not a destination.
