    Last Saturday, 25 November we had a number of students compete in the Karate Alberta All Alberta Karate Invitational. It was a great turnout, with several first-timers. The tournament was very well-attended providing some stiff competition for our Recreational competitors; there were also matches all day long in the Competitive league (Provincial and National athletes) who put on a great show of skill and high-intensity karate. All of our karateka did very well and also showed great manners, respect and fighting spirit – you made our club look very good! Congratulations to all.

    Calgary Chito Ryu is extremely proud of our newest black belts - Seaera Pouliott and Elijah Lukawitski.  Seaera will be moving to Vancouver this summer to attend college and Elijah has already moved to Crowsnest Pass with his mother (Sensei Jeannette Lukawitski) and his younger brother Paul where they have opened up Alberta's third Canadian Chito Ryu affiliated dojo!  We wish them all continued success in their lives and in their karate!

    And as a direct result of this upward pressure from our exceptional kyu belts, we have two new Nidans to congratulate as well - Lynne Buret and Jeannette Lukawitski.  Well done ladies...you are shining examples of what peace, perseverance and hard work can accomplish!

    Isshin!!!!

    I am entering into a fundraising event called Shredibility  with the Rocky Mountain Adaptive Sports Center. This is a non-for-profit organization which offers adaptive programming for people with disabilities so they may access different sports they would otherwise be unable to participate in. I am a ski instructor with them and think they are doing an amazing job at supporting this community. 

    For this event my teammate, Megan, and I will be participating in an all-mountain scavenger hunt as we race other teams for victory. We are the Davy Jones' Daughters, and we will be dressed as pirates! Any support will be greatly appreciated  as this is for a great cause very close to our hearts! 

    Megan and I met through CADS (the Canadian Association for Disabled Skiers) a few years ago and have been skiing together since! Megan is fully visually impaired but that in no way has stopped her from achieving anything and everything she wants out of life. Please help her, my students, and everyone in this community continue to be able to access the sports they want with the help they need! 

    Thank you,

    Lynne Buret
