SenseiHamidNam

S ensei Hamid Nam, a student of Taminago Sensei till 1996 and a student of Master Okuyama since 1996, has been teaching Shotokan Karate since 1994. He is a full time military member and a part time registered nurse as well. On his second tour of duty to Afghanistan in 2004 he ran a Karate club during his times off work in Camp Julien. During those seven months he trained individuals from various nationalities and martial arts backgrounds. The training focused on the use of Karate techniques; both basic and advanced level, application of those techniques for self defence, and combat arms training. He also had a chance to train with paratroopers from Belgium. Jo Frederixjo, for instance, a seventh degree Aikido practitioner, was one of the regular guests in the club. Upon return to Canada, Sensei Nam started teaching at the Rayfriel Centre.

S ensei Nam continues to teach traditional Shotokan Karate techniques at the St Columba Anglican Church. Students range from five to over 50 years of age. Sensei Nam runs a class for both adults and youngsters together. The classes focus on Bunkai (application of moves), self defense, and some friendly sparing with gloves. The club is more like a family where students not only learn the discipline of martial arts and self-confidence but they also learn a variety of techniques for self-defense purposes.
