beckyresized (2)Rebecca BateBecky’s dedication is an excellent example of why karate parents can (and perhaps should) forego watching from the sidelines while their child enjoys karate lessons. Becky began training in 2009 and set her sights on black belt right from the beginning. Her hard work and perseverance did indeed pay off as she earned her first degree black belt (shodan) with Shotokan Karate Academy (SKA) in November 2014. Becky is a wonderful role model for other karate parents who may be considering taking classes, or who have already joined the adult class.


cobraresizeABrewster ChardBrewster is an eighth grade student at Mt. Ararat Middle School in Topsham, Maine. He began his karate training in 2007 at the age of six. He earned his first degree black belt (shodan) with Shotokan Karate Academy (SKA) in November 2014. Brewster has sharp snappy technique and trains with 100% effort each and every class. Brewster is one of the most polite karate kids ever and can do more fingertip push-ups than anyone else in the dojo.


gabbyresize (2)Simone Lee-LynchSimone is an eleventh grade student at Mt. Ararat High School in Topsham, Maine. She began training in Tae Kwon Do at the age of seven and transferred to Shotokan in 2007. She earned her first degree black belt (shodan) with Shotokan Karate Academy (SKA) in November 2014. Simone continues to train with great enthusiasm, runs an excellent warm-up and has an outstanding front kick (not to mention a very audible kiai).


ospreyresize (2)Hayden LibbyHayden is an eighth grade student at Mt. Ararat Middle School in Topsham, Maine. He began his karate training in 2007 at the age of six. He earned his first degree black belt (shodan) with Shotokan Karate Academy (SKA) in November 2014. Hayden is one of the best technicians in the dojo and continues to train year after year with a gracious sincerity and a warm smile that we all could learn from.

sharkresize (2)Sebastian VarelaSebastian is fifth grade student at Woodside Elementary School in Topsham, Maine. He began training in 2008 at the age of four and was outstanding right from the beginning. Sebastian earned his first degree black belt (shodan) with Shotokan Karate Academy (SKA) in November 2014. His technical execution is among the best in the country, for his age group, and he is an impressive role model for the younger karate kids to emulate.
