Mem­bers of the Ka­ju­ken­bo/ Em­brun Fa­mi­ly Ka­rate Centre have been gran­ted a new place to prac­tice in Place d’Em­brun, af­ter the old do­jo, lo­ca­ted at 931 Notre-Dame, was re­du­ced to ashes in a fire on Sun­day, Ju­ly 24.

Mem­bers of the Ka­ju­ken­bo/ Em­brun Fa­mi­ly Ka­rate Centre have been gran­ted a new place to prac­tice in Place d’Em­brun, af­ter the old do­jo, lo­ca­ted at 931 Notre-Dame, was re­du­ced to cin­ders in a fire on Sun­day Ju­ly 24.

Fol­lo­wing the fire that des­troyed the buil­ding, ma­ny pa­rents and stu­dents were wor­ried about the fu­ture of the mar­tial arts centre. Not on­ly is this ac­ti­vi­ty a great way to stay fit and learn dis­ci­pline, it is al­so ve­ry com­pe­ti­tive. In Oc­to­ber, twelve stu­dents of Si­gung John Lia­nos are set to par­ti­ci­pate in the world cham­pion­ships which will be ta­king place in Du­blin, Ire­land. Wi­thout a place to prac­tice un­til then, these stu­dents are fa­ced with a great di­sad­van­tage.

For­tu­na­te­ly for mem­bers of the centre, a new lo­ca­tion was found ba­re­ly 24 hours af­ter the fire. Lo­ca­ted un­der Lu­cky 7 in place d’Em­brun, this new do­jo will of­fer double the space the old do­jo did. Mem­bers of the club and the com­mu­ni­ty joi­ned in du­ring the fol­lo­wing days to help re­no­vate the new lo­ca­tion, clea­ning out the space and re­pain­ting eve­ry­thing. Paint pri­mer for the new do­jo was al­so do­na­ted by Home Hard­ware in Em­brun, just be­side the old buil­ding on Notre-Dame.

In more un­for­tu­nate news, it would seem that the fire re­sur­fa­ced in the old buil­ding on Tues­day Ju­ly 24, col­lap­sing a por­tion of the floor and des­troying wha­te­ver equip­ment had been left un­tou­ched in the do­jo, in­clu­ding uni­forms, boxing gloves, etc. Ac­cor­ding to some pa­rents present du­ring the re­no­va­tion of the new do­jo, wha­te­ver do­na­tions can be made to the centre and its mem­bers would be great­ly ap­pre­cia­ted.
