A message from Tri-City Training Director, Tom Cako
"During this unprecedented time of Pandemic, we have had to change our training styles and adapt to a new way of life. Although this has been challenging on many levels, there have been new opportunities for growth and development. We are proud of our students and athletes who have continued to train both online and individually, and shift perspective for their personal development.
We are excited to move forward as it becomes safe to do so and have developed a "Summer Training Program" with options for limited-numbers outdoor training, continued (Zoom) online classes, and private training.
Please refer to "STRATEGIES FOR REDUCING RISK OF COVID-19 SPREAD DURING REOPENING OF TRI-CITY TRAINING" document and familiarize yourself with the protocols for training. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Our athletes' and families' safety is of utmost concern.
We move forward with gratitude for our Tri-City Community, our health, and the opportunity to train and build a lifestyle of growth and development. Thank-you for partnering with us! "

Tri-City Training Wrestlers & Karate Students: Spring Promotions!
When announcements were made that our training community would be closing temporarily for live classes, the Tri-City training students and athletes quickly adapted to online live classes and video resource materials. It has been incredible to witness the tremendous growth that has occurred despite the seemingly challenging shift in training methods.
We are proud to announce that Tri-City will be distributing 107 certificates and belts to various students, athletes, and instructors who have achieved promotions.
Congratulations to our incredible Tri-City Family! We look forward to continuing the journey with you!
C.N.G.K. Chief Instructor and Head Adjudicator Recognized for Lifetime of Dedication; Receives Kudan Rank
On December 7, 2019, Canadian Naha Te Goju Karate Dojo Heads and members publicly recognized the outstanding achievements of C.N.G.K. Chief Instructor and Head Adjudicator, Hanshi Jay Purdy. The presentation acknowledged his attainment of the honoured level of Kudan (9th Degree Black Belt). Hanshi Jay Purdy has demonstrated a lifetime of dedication to the study of Goju Karate with integrity of character as an honoured leader.
The presentation was ordained and witnessed by C.N.G.K. School owners, Kysoshi Mike Robertson, Renshi Tom Cako, Renshi Barbara Lamble, Renshi Keith Harris, Sensei Blair Purdy, and Sensei Christina Graf. Additional C.N.G.K. students were in attendance at the Black Belt Grading, December 2019, in Arthur, ON.
Hanshi Jay Purdy has been studying Goju Ryu Karate for over 50 years in both Okinawa and Canada. He established the Canadian Naha Te Goju Karate organization and has seven campuses where his unique curriculum is taught. Sensei Jay provides expert instruction to his Dojo Heads and higher level instructors ensuring quality, correctness, and character are always a primary focus. He has had widespread impact and is now witnessing generations of students as instructors and dojo leaders.
Hanshi J has inspired many people over the years. Woodrow Wilson said, "You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand." Leading by example, Sensei J has inspired his students to think with greater vision in order to expand their ability in teaching and helping others to experience the benefits of karate and martial arts. Additionally he inspires people to live life to the fullest. Whether it is through karate and training, music, or comradarie and sharing a memory or a laugh, Sensei J has a way of inspiring people to reach higher. He will spend time helping others regardless of their rank or experience, just enjoying the process and the relationships.
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples.”(M.T.) Thank you Sensei Jay for your continued support and leadership with C.N.G.K.
On behalf of all Canadian Naha Te students, we would like to offer sincere gratitude and heartfelt congratulations to the much deserving Hanshi Jay Purdy on your outstanding achievements and success.
