On Saturday, seasoned and newly recruited karatekas were shown the ways of sensei Abdul Dawoods special shotokan. Dawood comes from East London and is well known for his focus on technique and discipline. Students lined up and were given warm-up drills before Dawood showed them new moves. Brave volunteers stood up in front to spar with Dawood where they quickly learned his unique techniques and moves. Later in the afternoon, the karatekas were given a Tai Chi lesson by Dawood.

Tai Chi is a non-contact form of karate and focuses more on health benefits then self defence. In addition, the dojo offers women self-defence classes, childrens classes, Koshiki, karate, Kududo (weapons) and aerobics. Cindi wants his students to know as many forms of karate as possible to unlock their full potential. Anyone of all ages and experience are encouraged to join the dojo.
