A strong family values oriented dojo

Seido Karate Palmerston North Dojo marks special occasion with Junior Shodan Grading – Saturday 5th November 2016

It was indeed a special day for Seido Karate’s Palmerston North Dojo…..

The Dojo’s first ever Junior Black Belt grading warmly supported with the attendances of the large gathering of Seido seniors, kyu grades, friends and families….and made even more special with the grading being taken by Hanshi Andy Barber….

The 4 talented Juniors Ayana and JP (sister and brother), Christina and William (also sister and brother) all demonstrating wonderful technique and spirit throughout the challenging grading test….

Koyshi John Rounce, playing a huge role in all their karate journey’s not only being proud dad to Ayana and JP but also being guiding instructor and mentor to all 4……

A wonderful day of celebration indeed for everyone….and Congratulations to the new Senpai’s Ayana, JP, Christina and William….

Warmest regards
Sensei Ken Szeto and all at Seido Karate Lower Hutt Dojo
