Black Belt Grading - December 3rd, 2016

Congratulations to all successful black belt candidates on fine demonstration of excellence at this term's C.N.G.K. Black Belt Grading.  Students demonstrated kata, kobudo, bunkai, board breaking, and kumite as part of curriculum requirements.  All students performed required skills and good character.  Chief adjudicator, Kyoshi J. Pudy commented on the evidence of 'time put in' and one's ability to 'begin learning' at the Shodan level - good reminders for all trainees alike.  

All Dojo Heads would like to extend congratulations to their students on fine performance.  Well done!

Guelph Open Karate Tournament 2016

On Saturday, November 19th, 2016, Tri-City Training hosted the 5th annual Guelph Open Karate Shiai.  Sensei Tom Cako began opening introductions by thanking his Sensei, Kyoshi J. Purdy, for the legacy that he began in martial arts so many years ago.  His influence has had lasting impact on many practitioners over the years.  

Participants from all ages and ranks demonstrated kata, kobudo, and excellence in kumite!  Special thanks to all participants, black belt judges, and volunteers for all your support.  Donations from the event will be submitted to charity, "Right to Play". The event was an enormous success - thank-you for being a part!
