At the end of each year, the dojo nominates a student for Sensei’s Annual Award of Distinction.
The recipient is someone who has, in the past year, embodied what we all strive for at Edmonton ISKF, and demonstrates the principles of the Dojo Kun:
Seek Perfection of Character – trying to improve who they are, showing empathy and compassion for their fellow students
Be Faithful – showing commitment to the Dojo and their training
Endeavor – showing growth in spirit, karate skills and school
Respect Others – demonstrate humility and respect at all times for Sensei, other karateka and the Dojo
Refrain from Violent Behaviour – remains calm under pressure, not showing anger or irritation in training or in difficult situations
All students can nominate someone (not themselves) that they feel is deserving of this award.
Please see Sensei between Nov 30 and Dec 7 to get a nomination form, and return it to him by Saturday Dec 10. State who your name, who you are nominating and write a small paragraph why.
The award will be given at the Christmas Party.
