#Sato Cup 2016
To all fellow Karate-ka, family and friends,
I am excited and honored to welcome each and every one of you to the beginning of a new Karate year with Shoseikan Karatedo (Western Canada Division).
This Karate year-term will be a year of setting and reaching attainable goals, working harder and smarter and taking our club and member achievement to the next level of greatness.
This year, you are looking forward to encountering a highly intensive and challenging program that will push you to work beyond your limits. However, I am confident that all of you have the capacity and ability to meet our expectations. Our goal is to ensure that all members are enjoying the training and the time with Shoseikan Karate.
On behalf of the Instructor Team, I want to again welcome all of you and thank you for being a part of Shoseikan Karate. We are truly on the path to greatness and Karate-do.
Shihan, Henry W Chan
The temperature's rising, school's out of session and our Karate year comes to the end. It is time to have some outdoor fun.
On August 14, 2016, Shoseikan Karate has an outdoor training and BBQ event at Locarno Beach Park.
Instead having training at Dojo, some of our new members has experienced the training on the sand under the sun. It makes the warm Summer day more fun with games and BBQ. Parents, friends and members all had a great time. Also, fare-welling to our great senior member, Jeffrey Yu, who's moving to Toronto for University. We are going to miss him for a few years. We wish that he's having a great time in the east side but never forget Karate. Please come back to our force in the future.
It is our pleasure to celebrate our 10th years Annual General Meeting on June 24, 2016 at Vancouver Marpole Dojo.
Ten years for sure is a milestone and we would like to take this chance, to thanks all the parents, instructors and students. Thank you for supporting us, your efforts and contribution builds today's Canada Shoseikan.
Special thanks to our honor guest, Shihan Alan Chan. Also, thanks to all the helpers and to our MC, Tiffany Mo. Your hardwork makes the success of this event.
