The New Iberia Karate Institute (NIKI) is the oldest and only traditional karate club in the city and parish. It was first established in 1973. The Chief Examiner is Takayuki Mikami, 9th Dan and the Chief Instructor is Mr. Scott Decuir, 5th Dan. Mr. Decuir has been certified by the JKA as an instructor, examiner and judge. This blog is an opportunity for members and friends of the dojo to get information on Karate and events and interact with each other and Sensei.
Here are the results for the kyu test in Lafayette. Please click on the image to make it larger. Everyone did well and made some progress and several new brown belts were awarded. Speaking of awarding new belts, Brandon Kongphongmany, Caleb Helms and Braydon Kongphongmany all received their Shodan (black belts) at the Acadiana Training Camp associated with this weekend test. I appreciate all the help with the camp and all the participants from New Iberia. It was a very memorable camp and everyone who did it seemed to improve their technique.
