Please welcome Cassandra Hudson to the Japan Martial Arts Centre team.
She will be doing a lot of the administrative and promotional work. She has such great positive energy and we are excited for her to join our Dojo.
Here is an introduction by her:
My name is Cassie Hudson and it is an honour to be helping out Kancho and Hiromi Sensei with admin work for our wonderful Dojo. I'd like to share a little bit about myself. After graduating from The University of Toronto in 2008 with a degree in Film Studies and English, I did what most every English major does: I moved to Japan to teach English for two years. I had a blast there and fell in love with a beautiful and mysterious culture. But I hadn't had enough travelling yet. I lived both in Tanzania, Africa and London, England for a bit after that before coming back to Toronto to settle into a stable career. I currently work at Urban Post doing closed captions.
I look forward to meeting all of you. Thank you for your enthusiasm and patience with me as I learn more about our Dojo and the wonderful art of Karate.
See you soon!

Some of the Medalists and Cup Finanlists from the Grand Opening and Children's Tournament. Congratulations!
When a person trains two or three times a week, one's body and spirit benefit.
Training in the form of karate reflects the union with those who trained long ago. Subsequently, the person benefits form the previous karateka training and meditation.
In essence, those in the past help the person who trains in karate now. In the same fashion, the current karateka help prepare those in the future who will start karate training.
Thus the study of karate-do becomes eternal. In thre refinement of karate-do no, the student intensifies the link between the
past, present, and future of this ancient martial art.
A person helps someone in the twenty-second century by training now in karate-do.
Karate will intensify in importance to many people. Its spirit and scientific principles will be a great asset in the approaching centuries. I, as a Kancho, will teach those who are not yet born yet So, in a sense, I subtly teach the unborn.
