The ALL Nighter

Summer is nearly over and we always like to end it with a bang! So this year we hosted our second annual ALL Nighter where our students push themselves for 24 hours. However in order to participate, everyone needs to fundraise as much as they can to put towards their trip to Japan in 2021.

And with much success, we were able to survive the night and fundraise over another $1300.00.

ALL Nighter 2Thank-you again to everyone who came out to train, including our friends from the Honbu Dojo in Ingersoll as well as all of the volunteers who BBQ’d, brought us coffee, plus breakfast in the morning, and to Pam and Bryhnn who came out to teach a thing or two about yoga and flexibility (Mindful Life Studios and Bre Free Yoga).

We really appreciate everyone coming together to help us with the event and we are definitely looking forward to next year’s ALL Nighter!

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Keto No Bake Cookies

Shalini .GHello everyone,

It’s been awhile since we’ve shared a client’s pick. With all of the wonderful things we’ve been up too it’s been hard to keep up. But here’s another fabulous pick from our lovely lady Shalini. She’s always excited to share healthy yet delicious finds. And don’t forget if you have a recipe you would like to share, be sure to send it our way to feature it on our blog!

Please note: the recipes we share are referred to us by our clients and club members. All recipes are referenced accordingly at the bottom of the page with a link to their website.


Chocolate & Peanut Butter Keto No Bake Cookies

Shalini found this recipe was found on The Soccer Mom Blog. You can find more tips on how to store your keto cookies by visiting The Soccer Mom Blog.

Ingredients

  • Creamy natural peanut butter
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Butter
  • Non-slip mixing bowls
  • Non-stick silicone baking mat
  • Cookie sheet
Keto Cookies
Chocolate and PB Cookies

Directions

Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone baking mat.

TIP: We love these silicone baking mats because they’re non-stick and washable, so you can use them again and again!

In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, vanilla extract, melted butted, coconut flake and cocoa powder. Mix well by hand (the mixture will be gooey).

TIP: Feel free to add 1-2 teaspoons of Stevia if you like your cookies a little sweeter.

Scoop the no bake cookie batter onto your prepared baking sheet. Use the back of the spoon to gently shape each scoop into  into a 3″ cookie.

Place in freezer for 30 minutes to set.

CN Tower Climb 2018

CN Tower 2018It’s just been over a week since our group of five took on 1,776 steps to the top of the CN Tower for our 7th annual climb. It’s hard to believe it’s already been seven years of climbing, but each year brings on new experiences and gives other climbers the chance to test themselves physically and mentally.

This year Jeric and I took three new climbers to Toronto in order to climb for the World Wildlife Fund who pushed themselves and made it up in under 30 minutes. Our youngest AND oldest climbers to date.

Not only did we manage to climb in no time, we were also able to raise a total of $1,060 for the WWF. So in seven years of climbing, we’ve almost raised $10,000!

I want to send my biggest thanks to everyone who came out to help us fundraise back in March and who still continued to donate while our climbers prepared for the big day. It’s always a blast and next year I will be preparing another team for our 8th annual climb. If you would like to join us, be sure to let us know by February 2019 when we assemble our next group.

And to find out more about the WWF, please visit their website.

12 HR Cycle Relay

For those of you who missed out on Sunday, here’s what we got up to!

On Sunday, March, 18th, 2018 members of our club banned together to help us fundraise for two of our big events here at the studio. One is our annual CN Tower Climb for the World Wildlife Fund and the other is our cultural experience excursion to Japan in 2021.

From 8am to 8pm our students, parents, clients, family and friends came in to keep the wheels spinning while we were live on Instagram. Along side them were fellow cyclists from 3Sixty5 Cycling, our own personal trainer Whole Health Chelsi, and fuelling us along the way was Brutes and Babes Nutrition Inc. While streaming, our viewers helped spread awareness of our mission which helped us reach beyond our $1,000.00 goal to hit $1,128.00 and it’s still continuing to climb!

So on behalf of everyone here at Kazoku Martial Arts & Fitness I would like to thank everyone who came out and to all of you who watched us ride. We would not have been able to achieve our goal without your love and support.

You can continue to watch our story unfold as we aim to climb the CN Tower on April 8th as well as visit the land of the rising sun in 2021 by following us on Facebook and Instagram.

Cycle Relay 2018

WWF 1In less than a month James Wyatt will be taking another team up the stairs of the CN Tower to help fundraise for the World Wildlife Fund. This will be his seventh year helping the WWF aim to make a positive impact in the world.

How does climbing stairs help?

In order to participate in the event, each climber must raise a minimum of $150.00, which goes towards the global efforts of the World Wildlife Fund. His team is encouraged to fundraise as much as they can, aiming for $1000.00 each year.

In addition to the CN Tower Climb, the Kazoku Martial Arts Family is also looking to fundraise for their cultural experience in Japan 2021. We will be sending our students to go train with the masters within the Seiwa Kai Association in Tokyo and to have the opportunity to experience Japanese culture first hand.

Bike

For both of these events, James has organized a 12 hour relay to be held online via Instagram (@KMACentre) this coming Sunday, March 18th to collect online donations while him and his students cycle on their stationary bikes from 8am-8pm. Viewers who donate will also have the chance to enter in our raffle for a wonderful bike (for ages 7-10) donated by our friends at 3SIXTY5 Cycling.

So be sure to follow us and watch us live as we challenge ourselves and our community to keep the wheels spinning for twelve straight hours!
