Kia ora. My name's Steve Hilson, and I thought I'd just take a couple minutes out from training on the beach to tell you about this awesome club where I'm a sensei.

It is the New Zealand Disability Karate Association. Our aim is to provide people with disabilities the opportunity to experience the joys and benefits of karate. We provide our training free of charge, so we need your support.

On average, it costs around about $5,000 a year to run the club. This includes hall hire, insurance, the safety equipment, and the uniforms, or gis, which we provide to our students free of charge.

If you can provide a small donation by clicking on the button below, it will be deeply appreciated. Thanks very much.
