This concluded the Karate Tournament Season for 2013. The school is open on Monday and Wednesday, we welcome anyone interested in building these qualities in themselves. Shihon Dai Conley was very pleased with the results of his students; including four students from Germany. Noticeable differences are found at tournaments when comparing Master Conley’s students to those of other schools. Instructors from all over ask Shihon Dai Conley his teaching methods and style. Master Conley describes his teaching techniques as very strict and confidence building. His passion is for keeping the martial art tradition alive in the young people that he teaches. Once again, Conley’s Keichu Do Academy closed out the karate tournament season winning big. Students brought home 32 trophies, showcasing their talent they mastered through Grandmaster Conley’s expert teaching. The Dothan Leisure Services sponsored The 34th Southeastern Region Open Karate Tournament at the Dothan Civic Center on October 12th 2013. Karate students from throughout many states and countries met to demonstrate their martial arts skills. Students from Conley’s Academy competed in the following four different karate categories: Musical Kata, Open hand Kata, Kumite and Weapons.
