HUGE thank you to all participants, instructors, and volunteers to helped make the 2018 Train-a-Thon a massive success!!!!
After 8 memorable hours, the 2018 Chesterville Train-a-Thon is complete and we think it’s safe to say that everyone enjoyed themselves. Students all ages — from 6-60+ came out to try a number of different classes, including:
- Water Bottle Boot Camp with Renshi Carol Beauchamp
- Karate with Shihan Camille Cordick
- Kali Sticks with Kyoshi Norm Beauchamp
- Nanchuks with Sensei Pete Buma
- Jiu-Jitsu with Shihan Brian Lacroix
- Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with Sensei Greg Nilsson
- Knife Defence with Renshi Daniel Gasser
The final hour capped off the day with Lego Jiu-Jitsu, which brought together all of the day’s instructors and black belts for a fun martial arts building game. In total, 9 black belts created a full flowing technique, where they each added their own component. The end result was a routine that all students were able to smoothly demonstrate.
The day was an opportunity to fund raise for upcoming training opportunities and competitions, such as the World Kobudo Convention in Athens, Greece or Budofest in Quebec City, both approaching in May 2018.
On top of great training, the parents committee also put together a great and very affordable lunch for participants, complete with soup, sandwiches, hot dogs, fruit and fresh baked desserts. All proceeds from the lunch also went towards the fun to send students to Greece or Quebec City.
