Spirit of Burnewood

Burnewood Community’s motto is “Life is Good in Burnewood” and it’s hard for the majority of us to disagree with this statement. We have great schools, plenty of green space for recreation and a strong community spirit that provides a safe environment for our children to thrive in. There are still some opportunities, however, that are beyond the reach of some of our families. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to have a healthy and active life! To help achieve this goal, the League has established a Program Sponsorship Initiative called the “Spirit of Burnewood“. This initiative will allow children from families who have limited financial resources to participate in sports and recreational activities.
The scope of this initiative will provide free registrations in the children’s programs.  To qualify, children must be 18 years of age or under and a resident of Burnewood.  Asking for help is sometimes hard so our aim is to make the registration process as unintrusive as possible

If you would like to take advantage of this program, please contact pres@burnewood.ca or by mail at 4118 – 41 Avenue, Edmonton, AB, T6L 5Y6.
*Burnewood Community League reserves the right to refuse an application without explanation and without recourse.

Karate-do

Instructed by: Chris Eckert (780-465-0581 or japankaratedo-edmonton.com)

The Burnewood Community League karate program offers traditional instruction in the Japanese martial art of karate. The program is open to people of all ages and combines elements from the three traditional styles originating from the Okanawa region in Japan. The word karate translates as ’empty hand’ and perfectly expresses the philosophy of karate – self-defense.

Students are taught the importance of both mental and physical discipline, as well as perseverance. Combined with a great workout and the opportunity to compete at organized events, karate teaches many skills that are directly transferable to every-day life, working under pressure being a perfect example.

Our instructor, Chris Eckert is a fourth degree black belt and has been practicing karate since 1978. Chris started the BCL karate program in 1996, not long after moving in to the Burnewood community, and has seen it grow significantly during the past 10 years. He is a certified instructor with Genbukai Canada. In order to ensure that his teaching skills remain at their peak, Chris attends regular training sessions in Canada, the US, and in Japan.
