Spirit of the North

Spirit of the North Week is here! Things to remember

  • We are closed at the Morinville Dojo this week (Monday/Thursday and Saturday)
  • The website for the schedule of times for registered students is
  • This is an exciting event for students and anxiety runs high. Please DOUBLE check to make sure your child has all of their equipment for sparring (helmet, vest and gloves), gi and belt. This will help keep the anxiety level down and allow them to be at their best this week. Good luck to everyone who has registered, you will have a lot of fun!
  • Sensei Steve or Kim will be at all the events so if you have questions come see us.

Our Dojo Has Moved!

As of January 3rd, we will be in our new Dojo at 9610 Morinville Drive. We are working with the Morinville United Church in creating a commercial rental space at the back of the church. This will increase our lobby space and parking. We will be selling our old mats at $10.00 each as well as items like bags and the blinds. If you are interested in any of these items see Kim to secure the items you would like.

  • $130.00 per session

April 3 will be a free trial class. Please RSVP for this class so we can get an idea of how many are interested. Registration is open to the public but will be limited.

Kenyukai Koshukai 2019

Sensei deSa has received news from Okinawa that Shinjo Sensei is encouraging everyone to book their own accommodations for the Koshukai as he has been unable to arrange packages to include accommodation.  He is warning that it is high season for travel to Okinawa, so to book as early as possible.   This excellent training opportunity for both children and adult karate students to experience an international event in the birthplace of karate will take place in late July 2019 as you know.  It is also a great family travel and cultural experience that shouldn’t be missed if you can make it.  If you are planning on going and would like your name added to the list, please let us know.


We are current members of Karate Alberta. Every year each student must submit Karate Alberta Fees of $40.00 per year. This year’s fees are due in November and need to be submitted to the Rooke School of Karate by Nov 30, 2018. Anyone yellow belt or above must be a member. If you have not registered yet see Kim for a form. Being members of Karate Alberta helps support our style in the competitive arena and allows our students who want to compete the opportunity to do it not only provincially but also nationally.


Remembering that the martial arts begin and end with respect, I intend to:

  1. Develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that would reduce my mental growth or physical health.
  2. Develop self-discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and others.
  3. Use what I learn in class constructively and defensively, to help myself and my fellow man and never to be abusive or offensive.
