47th Beach Karate Practice – Media Coverage!

47th Beach Karate Practice – Media Coverage!

We were very fortunate today:  after a month and a half of ice and snow build-up, then a week of torrential rain, we arrive to beautiful, mild, even sunny, weather.  Thank you UBC members, for coming in to rake and clear our temporary sand dojo.

With all the (rightful!) attention on the local and global events this Saturday, we thought our Beach practice would be a quiet event seen only by friends, family, and a few passers-by.  Here are a few photos and videos, compliments of our fearless webmaster.  Thanks, Sue!

However, we were very happy to see tonight that two local newscasts covered us. See below for the links:

CBC Vancouver News: http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/860053059714 Look for us at the 13:35 minute mark.

CTV 6pm News:  http://bc.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1036042&binId=1.1184759&playlistPageNum=1  We are at the 11 minute mark, and are VERY grateful the newscaster worked hard to correctly pronounce the name of our association!  Not easy when you haven’t said or heard it before.

Also, a special thank you to Vancouver Shinpo for your coverage of our practice.  We appreciate your longtime support!
