Happy New Year!
In September 2011, Charleswood Karate introduced a new specialized class for female students at the beginner level. Taught by women for women, this introductory class is designed to give women the opportunity to try Shotokan Karate in Winnipeg in a environment of laughter, learning, sweating and challenge!
The instructors of the Women’s Beginner Karate session are female black belts Jana and Heather (who are also part of the Manitoba competitive team), and their inaugural session from September to December 2011 was quite successful and a number of new students tested in December for the first time, being awarded their yellow belts for their efforts. Congrats to everyone!
Now as January approaches, the second session of the Women’s Beginner Karate classes are about to begin.
