The Golden Shotokan Karate Society (GSKS) culminated the current training semester with a seminar and Kyu exam.

On hand to conduct the bi-yearly skills exam was Sensei Joe Dixon, Technical Director for ISKF of B.C. (International Shotokan Karate Federation).  Students were asked to demonstrate their skills and understanding in basic techniques, kata (forms) and self defence in partner drills. GSKS is currently in its 20th year of operation in Golden, offering self defence training to students of all ages, this year expanding the programs to juniors who were five to eight years old.

The next semester of  training will begin in September. Watch for announcements on how to get in on this rewarding experience and boost your confidence, self esteem and fitness.
