The Maritime IKD would like to welcome the Sunrise Shotokan Karate Club to the family. Sunrise Shotokan Karate is location in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia. Classes are instructed by Sensei Enid Schaller. Sensei Enid began training in 1998 and has been a long standing member of the ISKF. Members of the Maritime IKD who have been training for some time may remember Sensei Enid from ISKF Tournaments and Clinics. Sunrise Shotokan Karate will be starting new classes on February 1. More information on the club and Sensei Enid will be available soon.
Over the last 4 weeks, Sensei Norm Robitza and Sensei Roy Stuart each tested for ranks in the IKD Kenshusei program (Instructor Intern Training program). Sensei Robitza is now an IKD National level Instructor. Sensei Stuart is now an IKD Senior Provincial Instructor. The IKD Kenshusei program is a special training course to prepare future master level instructors and examiners. Shihan David and Janice Pyke have both graduated this program. Congratulations to Sensei Robitza and Sensei Stuart.
