CNGK Instructor's Retreat

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.

Consistent Repetition

written by Renshi Mike Robertson

Happy New Year!  The celebration of the winter holiday is one of my most valued traditions.  I find this season to exemplify transformation more than any other.  The vibrant spring flowers, summer grasses, and fall foliage dim in comparison to the vast emptiness of winter.  Change is everywhere.  The universe is in a state of expansion. The earth spins and orbits around the sun.  Relationships, directions and dreams are in constant flux.  As the Greek philosopher Heraclitus said, “The only constant is change.”

Written by Sensei Tom Cako

I have met many people in my life, in different countries, cities and towns. Everybody is going different directions and doing different things. I look around at the people around me and see people that have success in different areas of their life. Success can be measured in many ways; business, family, relationship, financial, professional etc… But what is the one thing we all have in common? CHANGE. There is nothing we can do about this! Change is going to happen If you like it or not. So why not change for the better?
