A Morning of Action with Kentokukan!

A Morning of Action with Kentokukan!

The Kentokukan karate school held a public jamboree in the Sun Youth gym.

Karate encourages tolerance, respect and self-fulfillment. These values were present during the Shorinjiryu Kentokukan Karatedo junior jamboree which was held on October 14th in the Sun Youth gymnasium.

The Junior Jamboree is an annual event where students from different Dojos in the Montreal area have the opportunity to showcase what they learned, perfect their skills and make new friends. For another year, this event open to the public focused on presenting karate to children who may have an interest in this martial art. During this action-packed morning featuring students and their instructors, the participants had the opportunity to see a full session of karate practice.

The Jamboree was a great warm up for the upcoming Kentokukan Fall Classic, which will be held on November 18th from 8:30 am – 4:30pm. Hundreds of kids from dojos across Quebec and Ontario will take part in this tournament benefitting Sun Youth’s Youth and Social Mentor’s Anti-Bullying and Conflict Resolution program. Last year, the tournament raised over $2,500 for the program that fights bullying and promotes conflict resolution by placing a social mentor in various schools. For 16 years now, this program has been making a difference in public schools around Montreal by providing schools with social mentors who are working with the school staff in order to foster positive relationships between students, offer guidanceanddevelop extracurricular programs for students. This program helps counter bullying and intimidation, strengthens social ties and develops team spirit.

If anyone is interested in attending the Kentokukan Fall Classic, it will be held at LaurenHill High School’s Junior Campus, 2355 Rue Decelles, Saint-Laurent, QC, H4M 1C2. The tournament will also be an opportunity for Sun Youth to gather food for those in need. This year, anyone bringing non-perishable items will receive a discount on the price of their ticket ($3 instead of $5).
