Ashihara Karate held its annual awards ceremony at the League of Friends of the Blind (Lofob) in Grassy Park last week.
Since its inception in 1980, Ashihara Karate has viewed themselves not only as a sporting organisation, but primarily as an educational institution.
Children and adults are not only taught, but in most cases are shown by the example of their instructor the true meaning of decency in personal conduct and respect for all life and property.
Many parents do not realise the depth and scope of good karate training. It offers a lot more than just surface value. Along with proper guidance from parents, the study of Ashihara Karate is an invaluable aid in creating a well adjusted human being.
Several students were honoured for their hard work during 2016.
