On behalf of Sekishinkan Karate, as well World Shoseikan Karate and our instructor team, we welcome you to a new Karate year. It continues to be a sincere pleasure and honor to serve another year as your Chief Instructor.
We are definitely excited for the new year ahead! With the start of the new Karate year in September, we will return to pre-pandemic operations, with a continued focus on hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, staying home when sick, and optional wearing of masks. Yes, mask is no longer a mandatory in our dojo training, we will leave it as an option to the student. We still recommended to wear it as a protection for everyone. However, if you or your child is sick or has any symptoms, please do not come to the classes.
We strive to maintain a safe and caring environment that allows our members to feel like they are a viable and important member of our club. This goal requires all of us to work together as a team to make that environment a reality.
This year, our goal is to remain the motivation and improving morale in our dojo. In addition, to encourage more commitment in the tournaments. We all suffered the damage by the pandemic in the last few years, it is time to stand up again and move forward. Let’s cheer up and been together for this change.
Shihan, Henry Chan
