MAYFIELD RENSHUKAN NEWS AND EVENTS
STAY INFORMED AND JOIN US FOR ALL THE ACTION
A huge congratulations are in order to everyone who successfully passed their recent gradings under Murakami Shihan especially Anna Melnic, who successfully passed her Shodan grading. Achieving Shodan is a significant milestone, however, this is only where the real journey begins, a lifelong journey of self-improvement, discovery and a deeper understanding of karate-do itself.
The success of our Club is deeply rooted in our commitment to preserving the traditions, values and philosophy of Hirokazu Kanazawa Soke and Shotokan Karate-Do.
While recognising Anna's achievement as important, we must also acknowledge the efforts of all those who undertook Kyu gradings. Each one of you has demonstrated technique, strength and the true spirit of karate-do. A reminder that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible. Also, the impressive display of camaraderie and club spirit did not go unnoticed by others. You've truly done the club proud.
Good job and congratulations to all of you.
