A new karate club has been recently established in Lae and an open invitation has been sent to practitioners of karate all over the country.
The new club, All Japan Hayashiha Shitoryukai Karate-do PNG, established by Sensei Luke Power is currently in operation and already the Lahi Shotokan Karate club has affiliated with the new establishment.
According to an invitation letter forwarded by Power, he is offering a hand to anyone who may be interested in his style of karate and can assist with karate uniforms, belts and other training materials.
Luke Power, who has over 22 years of experience in karate, is a third dan black belt in the style of Shitoryu and said he, “can grade anyone up to 1st dan black belt” in the country.
Meanwhile, Power’s head instructor in Australia, Shihan Koh Beng Soon, an 8th dan in the style, is keen to come over to the country and offer seminars to students of karate regardless of style. He is also a good friend of PNG’s mentor/coach Sensei Trevor Roberts and can assist with the development of karate in country.
