Karate Begins and Ends with Respect

Here are a few photos of our Karate Kids practicing “Kumite” (freestyle sparring). This is an opportunity for students to test their skills (mind, body and spirit). At SCK, it’s not uncommon to see students wearing “bogu” (protective equipment) when practicing Kumite.

Although, all students work hard and push each other to greater levels, it’s important to acknowledge the presence of “reigi saho” (Etiquette, Manner or Conduct). All students are encouraged to “intentionally” develop what respect means to them and how they choose to demonstrate respect in the dojo and in all areas of their lives.

Karate Bringing Sunshine Coast Families Together

Here is a family to keep an eye out for in 2018. Frazer and Zac have been training for a little while now and have become quite competitive on the tournament circuit. Now, we are excited to welcome Zac’s younger brother, Ethan to SCK. Good times ahead for our Evett Family.

We have been fortunate to work with many families on the Sunshine Coast since the year 2000. It has certainly been a great way to to bring families together and work together to bring out the best in each other.

Growing Together at SCK

SCK Instructors Support Local Japanese Language Students

Japanese language teacher from the Kawana High School, Nicole Notting Sensei, continues to go above and beyond to provide her students with memorable learning experiences to not only develop their language skills but to also experience the Japanese culture right here on the Sunshine Coast.

Last Friday the 4th May, Notting Sensei organised a full day of activities for her students (30 students) which I’m certain will be remembered by her students for many years to come.  Dance, “suikawari” (a traditional Japanese game which involves splitting a watermelon with a stick), “mochitsuki” (pounding of rice to make mochi – annual tradition that usually happens around New Years) , lunch at a popular Japanese Restaurant at Dicky Beach and “KARATE”.

Sensei Martin did a fabulous job presenting an hour long karate training session of kihons (basics) which was delivered in both English and Japanese.  This was followed by a brief discussion of the history of Karate and a demonstration.

A big thank you to Notting Sensei for inviting us along to this special day. It is certainly a great opportunity for all Kawana High School students to advance their Japanese language studies and gain a deeper appreciation of the Japanese culture.
