Free Kyukushin karate lessons offered

2016-09-08 06:00

YOUTHS and adults are invited to join free Kyukushin­ karate classes at Marburg Secondary from Monday to Thursday every week.

Classes start at 3.30pm until 4.30pm for children aged six to 18 and for adults from 5pm until 6.30pm.

Sempai George Jaxa said the aim is to teach the youth karate and at the same time keep them off the streets and away from social ills.

“The objective is to instil the true spirit of Kyukushin­ because it is full contact karate,” said Jaxa.

There will be a provincial tournament on 10 September, in which members will take part.

Training will be at the Marburg hall if available, however, the school field will be used as an alternative.
