Did You Know?

Did you know our USA Director, Mr. Dwight Scales, retired a few years ago but now serves forty hours per week as Character Coach for a charter school in addition to teaching karate classes?  As Character Coach he handles conflict resolution, provides counseling, offers support, and encourages as needed.  He also provides general services in whatever capacity is required.  Role models are sorely needed today and Mr. Dwight’s strength, compassion, and humility provide an excellent example for the kids at the school.  And for those of us in the GKK as well.

GKK Karate Tournament Argentina

I am pleased to announce that on November 30th we held the First GKK Karate Tournament in Argentina named Miyagi 2013. It was very successful since a good number of our students, children, teens and adults as well, participated.

The system we used for children allowed all of them to get a medal, following the concept that they are all winners, as a means of helping them overcome the fears of their first competitive event.

For the older crowd, we offered prizes for the first, second and third places in each category. The Tournament had two main activities organized for the different ages of the participants:

Kata Competition in Teams and Individual Kumite
Everybody enjoyed the Tournament, and we were supported by many families who came to share the event with our competitors.
