Q3 Instructors Clinic

All Brown and Black-belt Students,

Reminder. There will be an Instructor’s Clinic next Sunday September 18 from 12:00 to 3:00 pm at Grandview Heights Community Hall.

As we head back into training and welcome new students, there are certain principles we want taught, and we’ll also revisit class structure and discuss age-appropriate development and training techniques.

Tournament Training

Students, our next tournament team training event will be hosted at Grandview on April 10th from 3:30PM-5:30PM.  Sensei Scott hosts these trainings, and are recommended to students blue and up who have a tournament (or grading) focus.  Kata and kumite skills will be honed and polished for any upcoming events.

Northern Alberta Black Belt Pre-Grading

Students, a reminder that the Bushido Karate Association will be hosting the Northern Alberta Pre-Grading on March 20th at the Derrick Club (10AM-2PM).  This event is recommended for any students looking to grade at the Provincial Grading in May.  All students brown and up are encouraged to attend this event.

Back to Karate!

Students, our 2016 term is in full swing!  There have been some slight changes made to the schedule of some of our classes, so be sure to check your class hours to ensure you or your child are attending the correct classes.  Reminder – it’s not too late to start for beginners!  If you have friends or family members who are interested in joining the program, they are welcome to attend class and try it out.

In the winter season we see a variety of training opportunities across the province for our members to attend.  Please check out our events section online for up to date information on clinics, tournaments, and gradings coming up in the next 6 months!

Black Belt Pre-Grading

Brown/Black Belts, we will be hosting the Northern Alberta Black Belt Pre-Grading this Sunday at the Derrick Club from 10AM-2PM.  For more information, please check the events tab of the website.

Thanksgiving Weekend Classes


There will still be classes held at usual times at Grandview, McKernan, and the Derrick for youth and adult programs on Friday and Saturday.  However for Thanksgiving, we will cancel the Sunday night workout for teen/adult members.

If you are going down to Calgary for the Nishimura clinics this weekend – have fun, and we’ll see you there!
