Traditional Karate-Do Children's World Cup
I am very happy to announce that our youth will have the opportunity to compete in this year's Children's World Cup held right here in St. John's Newfoundland, at the Mile One Stadium (Please see attachment for additional information). The competition will take place from October 22 - 28, 2018 along with the top adult black belts from around the world. We are very fortunate to have the ability to compete in such a tournament.
Update: Tremendous turnout and a resounding success! Sensei Shimoji was engaging and insightful, as usual! The Dan-rank teachers sessions were superb!
We're very excited to have Sensei Toru Shimoji joining us again this September for a three day Seminar and Grading.

Power Karate Kids did an Outstanding Job!
This coming Wednesday, Feb 28th is being recognized as Pink Shirt Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about anti-bullying. The hope is to send a positive message that bullying, including cyber-bullying isn’t acceptable and won’t be tolerated.
Power Karate is based on the precepts of Respect, Confidence and Power, and on Feb 28th our karate students are encouraged to wear their pink shirts to class as a show of solidarity against all forms of bullying.
Students can wear their pink shirts, along with their belts and Gi bottoms if they like.
“Together we can make a difference!”
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Frosty Festival Parade this week! The kids had a ball!
Congratulations to Harrison Luff for winning the "Karate Inspires Us" Activity!
Harrison did a presentation using several different liquids to demonstrate how our minds can become busy and congested, and he then added more solution to show how breathing can help us become calm and clear our minds again. It was an excellent demonstration and Harrison's Dojo-mates loved it!
Well done, Harrison! Oss!
Thank you to everyone who submitted Arts or Letters for this Activity. They were all superb!
