Spring has come and gone… and so have most of the tournaments!

Posted by on Jun 16, 2016 in News

Congratulations to our Spring Referral Challenge winner Daniel de Matos!! Spring is a time where the weather is a mixed bag, from one day to the next, and even from the start of the day to the end of the day… you have to bring 6 outfits to ensure you will be comfortable. The great thing for CSMA athletes is that they’re used to this type of packing, as many of them need about five outfit changes at each tournament. Over the past two months there hasn’t been a weekend without at least one of our CSMA athletes competing, nationally or internationally. However, there has also not been a weekend where Team  CSMA has not returned without a first place trophy, so that’s pretty good I guess… (okay, it’s pretty amazing). The students train hard all year, compete hard all tournament season, and for most they do so with one goal in mind, to make Team Canada. The weekend they have been waiting for just passed on June 11&12th in Montreal. Fifteen CSMA athletes went and left everything out on the mat in efforts to qualify for Team Canada. Congratulations goes out to those of Team CSMA who qualified for the WKC National Karate Team, as well as the WKU National Karate Team. Those who qualified will be representing Canada at Competitions in Dublin, Ireland, and Orlando, U.S.A this upcoming fall! Stay tuned for more exciting CSMA updates. Come check us out at the KRC Hill on Canada Day!   Cheers,...

It’s that time of year again…

Posted by on Jun 16, 2016 in News

Every spring the sun comes up, the flowers bloom, and Team CSMA finds themselves at, at least one tournament every weekend. Not only are we present, but we are dominating! This past weekend Team CSMA represented at The Martial Artist Open, and the KJS Open, with Sensei Ryan competing for his first time ever! Many of the students achieved a number of firsts this weekend, from going to their first competition ever, to trying out new routines, overcoming old injuries and returning to the sparring division, and even winning some of their first medals ever! It was a very satisfying, and exciting weekend for all! On top of that the Charity Dodgeball tournament was a huge success! We raised $400 for the cause and a large bounty of non-perishable foods. The hustle and bustle at CSMA will not stop, be sure to stay updated on everything going on, to make sure you don’t miss a thing! Until next...

Registration is either 5 canned food items, or a $10 donation. – Feel free to donate to the cause even if you don’t intend to participate, all donations are welcome! Grab your friends and come throw some balls around to help support those in need within our community. If you are interested in playing but cannot get a group of people together have no FEAR. There is a sign up sheet at the front desk where you can place your name and leave your teams fate in the hands of the CSMA Staff. Sign-up is open until SATURDAY.
