This past Father’s Day the Arashi-Do family took part in the annual St. Albert Soap Box Derby, which is part of the anniversary of St. Albert itself. For bringing along a few volunteers and putting in some hours ourselves, the organizers were kind enough to let us spread the word about the benefits of martial arts for both kids and adults to the families enjoying the festivities! Professor Mike and Khun Trevor also built a car to enter, with Thomas at the wheel. He placed second in his first heat and did very well in his other two races despite some axle issues. Here are some great shots from the day!
Thomas was a natural at the wheel, and will be a serious contender next year with a new and improved car!
When he wasn’t driving, Thomas was putting in hard work on the mats doing an awesome demo with Kira!
Professor Tyson and Khun Trevor took to the mats to display some of the Science of Eight Limbs for the crowd
Thank you to everyone from the Arashi-Do family that came out to support the event. We had a lot of fun and hope to see even more of you next year!
