    KenpoTalk News - Spring 2014


    Spring is slowly working on it’s return after a surprisingly cold winter, and it's looking to be a great one. A lot of great seminars and camps coming up, as well as the warm weather coming back.

    As we do on occasion, we're sending out this short newsletter updating everyone of some major things on the site or that may be of interest that may have been missed or forgotten about.

    Thank you again everyone for helping make KenpoTalk a great success!

    2014 Bob & Barbara White Invitational Youth Karate Tournament

    Message from the Director

    On Sunday March 23, 2014 Bob White’s Karate Studio will proudly host the 9th Annual Bob and Barbara White Invitational Karate Tournament. Once again, all net proceeds from this event will be donated to the Royal Family Kids. The RFK has a 25 year history of providing a free week of summer camp for children, ages 7 to 11, who have come from group homes and foster homes around the world. All of these children have been removed from their biological due to physical, sexual, or emotional abuse.

    Over the past 8 years, the martial arts community has come together to support the BBWI and the RFK in ways we never could have imagined. Our first tournament, in 2006, was held in the parking lot of our studio. It has now grown into an international event with guests and participants from all around the world.

    In addition to the actual tournament there have been fundraisers held throughout the years that include bowl-a-thons, golf tournaments, light shows, holiday events, auctions, raffles, kick-a-thons, other tournaments, and seminars featuring some of the top instructors in the world.

    Thanks to all this support, Bob White’s Karate and all our friends have been able to donate over $400,000 to the RFK and have provided hundreds of abused children the opportunity to receive the greatest gift of all, unconditional love.

    Thank you for all of your support and we look forward to another great year.

    For the kids,
    Vishal Shukla
Tournament Director

    Spring Training Tips

    With the return of warmer weather, some of us will have the chance to do some training outdoors, catch up on our year work, or just hit the beach and catch some sun. When doing this, remember the following:
    - Watch your footing. With the snow melting, many a surprise is being revealed. Broken glass, garbage and other surprises are showing up where they were deposited by the weather over the past few months.
    - Wear Sun Screen - Sun burn hurts, and too much sun can cause health problems as you get older. If you're going to be in the sun, put on some sunscreen to help protect your skin.
    - Wear sunglass with UV protection. Sure they cost a couple bucks more than the cheapies, but the added protection for your eyes is well worth it.
    - Drink plenty of water! Staying hydrated is crucial to your well being, and most people don't drink enough. This is especially important during the summer when you'll be sweating more than normal.
    - Use Deodorant! This is very important in the spring/summer months. Don't wait until you see your training partners dropping at ten paces. Spray it, roll it or rub it, but do your part to keep the funk down. Your partners will thank you.
    - Wash your uniform regularly. It will help keep it looking and smelling good during the warm months.

    Safe and Fun training!
