[singlepic id=307 w=320 h=240 float=right]The event was held on February 25, 2012 at the Charleswood dojo, and while we got off to a late start due to “technical difficulties”, the rounds went quickly and smoothly. Results can be found on the IDSL page as linked above.
Thank you to the officials and timekeepers, and to the competitors as well. We had representation from not only Charleswood Karate, but Winnipeg Budokai, Victoria Karate Club, Fort Garry Shotokan, and Heijoshin Karate. And let’s not forget the competitors from Lac du Bonnet Karate who came in from outside of Winnipeg!
Before I go any further, I’d like to invite the NEW brown belts to keep an eye out for when the next IDSL event date is announced. We’d love to see some new faces coming out to have some fun, while meeting people who train at other Shotokan clubs around Winnipeg, and getting some low-pressure competition experience in as well. Sensei Phil said he expected the next event to be held early in April.
Be sure to become a fan of the IDSL page on Facebook if you hang around on there.
We’ve got a lot of video content from this event – 36 videos, in fact!
To make it easy, I’ve put all the videos in a big list, and broken it down into sections:
Hi, my name is Jill, and if you haven’t noticed me skulking around with a camera at the last few IKD seminars and IDSL events, you’ll probably begin to notice me now.
I started helping Charleswood with its Social Media content in December, livening up the blog, the Facebook page, and introducing a YouTube channel and Twitter profile as well.
All of this is to give members a number of ways to keep up with what is going on with the club, and also, it’s to spread the word about Charleswood Karate. You can help by sharing our videos and pictures and blog posts on YOUR blog, Facebook page, YouTube account, or on Twitter, and linking back to the club’s website.
And of course, if your friends or family have questions about karate, let them know they can train 2 classes for free to check it out some time!
[singlepic id=286 w=320 h=240 float=left]Karate is a sport that children as young as four can safely get involved with and benefit from.
Charleswood Karate is a place they can make new friends, learn the basics of Shotokan karate, and be encouraged to focus, be respectful to themselves and others, and participate with spirit.
Our “Young Tigers” program is designed for children aged 4-6, once a week for 10 weeks. Certificates for achievement are provided for discipline, strength, and karate skills.
Parents are welcome to watch, and the club provides a seating area to the side to make it comfortable!
The Young Tigers program for the spring session will start in April, right after the spring break, and progress for 10 classes.
Children can progress to the more advanced regular youth program designed for those 6-12 years of age after one or more sessions of Young Tigers.

THIS EVENT WAS IN 2012 AND IS COMPLETE!
Stonewall Karate Club is hosting its 16th Annual Interlake Karate Competition on March 10th, in Stonewall, Manitoba.
Costs and registration forms for the various events can be found at the dojo, and the registration deadline is March 1, 2012!
Sensei Debbie Hinds, Head Instructor of Stonewall Karate Club, has let us know that this year the tournament will be open to all Shotokan Karate organizations in Manitoba, regardless of club or affiliation.
Unlike the IDSL match events we’ve been hosting at our club which are restricted to brown and black belts who train Shotokan karate, the Stonewall tournament is open to competitors of all ages and ranks, and is an excellent opportunity for anyone who trains at Charleswood to try something a little different from our everyday training.
If you’ve never entered a tournament, join us! You’ll have a lot of fun!
