The CNGK Elora Championships 2017 were a huge success! Goju Ryu Karate Students of all ages and ranks from 15 dojos across Ontario competed in today's championships. Participants demonstrated kata, kobudo, and kumite. Hosts, Sensei Barbara Lamble (Elora Karate Dojo) and Renshi Mike Robertson (Elmira Karate Dojo) welcomed black belt judges and guests that have trained for over 30 years. "It was exciting to see such quality kata," said several visiting judges , "It's great to see everyone's progress over the years." Both hosts Barbara and Mike said, "It's a great opportunity for students to learn in training. We are so proud of each competitor for having the courage to step up and compete."
Special thanks to all competitors for fine demonstration of excellent character. Thank-you to all black belt judges and volunteers for your contributions towards the event. Special thanks to everyone for your support of this special day! We wish you all the best as you continue your training!

The CNGK Instructors Retreat at Barry's Bay was a fantastic experience this past weekend! This is an important time of training and planning for C.N.G.K. Instructors and Dojo Heads. The weekend included personal karate training sessions with Kyoshi J Purdy and Tai Chi Sessions with Renshi Mike Robertson. A few braved the ice for hill runs and hauling logs. Every meal was an incredible treat and everyone was spoiled with Brenda's home made treats including a turkey dinner! The delicious meals were followed by more hauling logs, incredible music performances, more training, more amazing food, fantastic fellowship, fun, and relaxation on the beautiful lakefront property. It was an excellent time of training, planning, and connecting! We are looking ahead with anticipation to each of the upcoming C.N.G.K events! We are also looking forward to another year with all our CNGK families! Special thanks to Kyoshi Jay Purdy and Brenda for their kind hospitality! It is wonderful to be part of such a fine group of quality practitioners in the CNGK family.
