This very powerful video was the introduction to the recent Goju Kai 40th National Championships held by the All-Africa Karate-Do Goju Kai Hombu Dojo.

Summer Camp - Nanaimo

Summer Camp this year was hosted by Shima Karate in Nanaimo, with over 100 Karateka attending. 3 of our members took the opportunity to challenge the Dan exams and we are proud to say that they were all successful.

Congratulations to: Brian, Ian, and Tessa. -- Now get back to training.

Camp this year included a special conditioning and skill portion which allowed those who intend to compete at the 2017 World Gojukai competitions to establish performance baselines to measure their progress. For those who will not be competing it provided an opportunity to challenge themselves and see how well they could do.

Everyone finished the day tired and satisfied.

Thanks to the wonderful folks at Shima Karate; Sensei Kurt, his wife Brenda and all the helpers who made this an exciting and rewarding weekend.

Canada Day Demonstrations

Canada Day was especially exciting for us this year. We were invited to perform a demonstration at the Coquitlam Canada Day celebrations. We showed an enthusiastic crowd a variety of the exercises and skills that we work on in our classes.

Although the temperatures were well above 30 C everyone was able to perform with energy and enthusiasm.

Here are some photos from the day.
