July 2nd to 4th, 2015

SKC NOVA students joined Shotokan Karate Center International at the honbu dojo in Rapid City, SD for the inaugural Black Hills Summer Training Camp. We were blessed to gather together, once more, to train under our beloved Mazhari Sensei and to spend our time with Sensei taking in the beautiful sights of South Dakota. The attending students of SKC NOVA give many thanks for SKCI graciously hosting SKC NOVA students, and we are especially filled with gratitude to Mazhari Sensei for bestowing upon us wonderful memories to last a lifetime…

Kyu Examination with Sensei Golnesa AsheghAli

March 26th, 2015

Kyu examinations reflect the high standards of SKC International, and all participating students must demonstrate they have met the technical requirements as well as their personal development of character. SKC NoVA was honored to have Sensei Golnesa AsheghAli from SKC International conduct examinations for participating students, and lead Thursday evening’s training session. Examinations are a learning experience for all in attendance, and both training and examinations were a great success for all who participated!


SKC NOVA C Class Instructor Certifications

January 30th, 2015

SKC NOVA is honored to have Spiro Roiniotis, Thuong Nguyen, and Rachel Creedon successfully complete the C Class SKC Instructor Training Course under the instruction and guidance of Mazhari Sensei, Chief Instructor for Shotokan Karate Center International.

All SKC International certifications require rigorous instructor training courses that meet the highest of international standards. Simply attaining a black belt does not make one an instructor. Lack of knowledge and training, as seen in many “home-made masters,” are what cause physical injury and disappointment for students.

Spiro Roiniotis, Thuong Nguyen and Rachel Creedon express their deepest appreciation and thanks to Mazhari Sensei, and are proud to continue a uniform standard of excellence.
