Okinawan-style karate returns to Baddeck Oct. 10
The Baddeck chapter of the Cape Breton Highlands Karate Club will resume on Oct. 10 – a slightly later start than last year – to accommodate Theatre Baddeck performances. The Okinawan-style karate school will run every Wednesday, October through May, beginning at 5:30pm at the Masonic Hall. Like last year, Sensei Leo Donovan will make the 3-hour round trip journey from North of Smokey each Wednesday to teach the class. For more information, follow Cbhkc-baddeck on Facebook, or email Sensei Leo Donovan at lgdonovan@staff. ednet.ns.ca.
