Hey everyone! We hope that you had a great weekend, as some of us sure had a busy one!
This past weekend was the 12th Annual CKKA Gathering Weekend, held this year in Vaughan, Ontario. Over 250 students and instructors attended for association meetings, tournament competition, martial arts seminars, awards banquet, and various gradings.
It was a great chance to see again, work with, talk to, and meet so many familiar and new friendly faces visiting from all across Canada, Texas, Arizona, and new to this year, Hawaii!

We want to thank everyone who attended, we hope that you enjoyed the weekend! We are looking forward to next year’s event for 2019, tentatively planned for the end of March in Waterloo, Ontario, hosted by The Waterloo Kung-Fu Academy.
This week at the dojo is ‘Pre-Testing Week’, so make sure that you are in and working hard to get ready for your test next week. Our Karate Kids Program Schools are continuing to work hard in preparation for their upcoming end-of-year test!
Hope you have a great week, see you at the dojo!
