KREM karate camp concludes

Twenty-three participants in the 4th Annual KREM Karate summer camp received medals this morning, after completing a month of training in fundamentals of karate and self discipline.

The training was done by Sense Mark Welch, 53, a former student of Frank McKenzie who holds a second degree black belt and who has 25 years experience.

Welch said that this was his most difficult of the four years, because of the discipline issues he had to grapple with.

He stressed that the camp isn’t just about learning karate, but also learning about self, the value of life and the need for discipline and a positive attitude.

Camp participants were ages 5 to 13, and they were divided into two daily sessions: 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. They trained on KREM’s rooftop.

Just before receiving their medals Monday morning, the karate camp participants displayed fundamental karate blocks and standing movements, after which they sat down on the flood for meditation.

Each was called to individually receive his or her medal from KREM Radio manager, Ejay Hill.

Hill thanked parents, on behalf of the management of Kremandala, for entrusting the children into the organization’s care as they participated in the summer camp. He also commended those who displayed exemplary discipline and good behavior, and expressed the hope that the camp can continue for its fifth year next year.

The camp was free to participants.

About KREM
The idea for the KREM Radio station originated in early 1979 while Rufus X and I were visiting New Orleans. There was a New Orleans deejay I liked, by the name of Sister Love, and one day Rufus and his cousin, Sam Wiley, who was our host, showed me the building where the radio station which featured Sister Love was located. It was quite a modest, one flat structure, much smaller than the three story Albert Cattouse Building from where the Belize government monopoly station – Radio Belize – was broadcasting.
