|BEYOND KARATE'S 2019 Karate Camp
indeed was EPIC!
Five days of friendship, fun, games, creativity
On the first day we had karate training,
sparring, swimming, origami swans & ninja
stars, ninja fight and foremost friendships and
On day 2 we made models of Torii Gates, the
traditional entrance seen all over Japan!
Our gratitude goes to Heisha Freeman &
Anthony Freeman who donated and
constructed these amazing kits for us to
assemble and paint. Thank you!
Day 3: Today we learned that Torii Gate is a
symbol of transformation, process from the
mundane to extraordinary. From regular life
to the Karate-Do life of respect, integrity and
|Another art project, fun at the basketball court
and a bit of dancing.
Day 4: Swim time! These kids are awesome!!
So great to see their personalities shine.
In the morning we talked about how to make
friends: spend time together, smile at each
other, do things together, help each other,
call each other.
Then... Campers brushed a word of their
choice in Japanese kanji. And signed their art
with their names in Japanese.
We saw our friends from HEROES Camp too.
On our last day, we celebrated with pizza and
awards. It was five days of friendship, fun,
games, creativity & karate.
