Congratulations to our dojo members selected for the 2018 Karate Alberta Provincial team!  Returning team members are Sempai Mariah Blunt (8th time team member and gold medallist in her U21 kumite division), Ethan Baker (3rd time) and Diego Ruiz-Silva (3rd time).  Making their debut on the team are Darshleen Singh, Hafid Ben Mahmud and Muhimen Ben Mahmud.  They will compete at the Canadian National Karate Championships, being held in Halifax on March 9 to 11. We know their perseverance and hard work will be rewarded and we wish them the best as they represent themselves, our dojo and the province.  Well done to all!

Over the last month we have been working to help athletes prepare for nationals as well as belt testing.  With significant challenges facing many of our dojo members, it’s important to remember the value of positive self-talk.  Everyone has been working hard to perfect techniques, improve fitness and create the proper mindset for success.  But an important factor in all of that is confidence. And confidence is built not only on diligent practice, but also on reminding ourselves of the hard work we do each training session and the improvements that result from that. 

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.”
