Illinois Shotokan Kicks Off The Tournament Season

Traject Info

More than 400 ISKC students and some Kohl's Care employees kicked and punched at 4 locations to launch the 2010 Kick For Cures. As of October 24, 2010 we have raised nearly $60,000 to get the Kick For Cures off to an amazing start. This years goal is to raise $125,000 by the end of the year.

One ISKC Student, Rollin Burket, led the way by raising $6,225. Nathan Agno was not far behind raising over $3,000. Danny Friedman and Joel Schleicher have raised over $1,000.We are very excited about the dedication many of the students are showing by supporting the Kick For Cures.

It's not too late to participate the Kick For Cures will continue online through the end of the year. You can signup for a sponsor page by going to www.kickforcures.com

Competiton is what fuels many karate students. When the tournament season is underway you can feel the energy. The Jennifer Malloy Memorial Tournament was our first competition of 2011 and it was everything a competitor would want. You could feel the electricity when you entered the gymnasium at Harper College, the buzzing of the competitors and the cheering from spectators. Cameras were clicking and flashing to catch the special moments as each student took their turn in the ring.

More than 825 athletes had their chance to show their stuff, performing kata, participating in kihon (basics), trying their favorite techniques in kumite, and many do all three events. The touranment began at 9:00am and the last match ended at 6:30pm. There's not a better feeling then knowing you overcame your fear and came out and gave it your all. Winning is not the most important part; it's having the courage to compete against your peers which helps you learn your strengths and weaknesses. If you go home having learned from your experience, that's a great accomplishment.

"Have a safe summer and we hope to see a lot of our ISKC friends in Arlington, Texas at the 2011 National Championships. Good Luck to them all!"
