Columbia, SC, March 04, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- As part of Samurai Karate Studio's "Environmental Self-Defense" initiative, members of SKS will be participating in a clean up project on Clemson Road, located in Richland Northeast Columbia, a road that runs adjacent to SKS.
Sensei Chris Feldt, owner and chief instructor for Samurai Karate Studio stated, "The focus of the clean-up project will be on both sides of the embankment that line the road, the sidewalk and the street itself. Specifically, members of our dojo will be picking up all trash and debris that is often times thrown from passing cars on this very busy road."
SKS would like to invite the entire community to participate in improving this small section of our neighborhood.
"Part of my student training curriculum, includes acts of environmental self defense," commented Feldt, "I believe self defense is more than just kicking and punching. We need to preserve our natural resources and protect our planet and a clean up project helps remind us of the beauty of nature that surrounds us."
This event coincides with an international event called Earth Hour, where the world is called upon to turn off their lights for one hour beginning 8:30pm this same day. According to their website, "The movement symbolizes that by working together, each of us can make a positive impact in this fight, protecting our future and that of future generations."
All SKS students, parents, neighbors and friends are invited to participate. All students 15 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to participate in this event.
Everyone is asked to bring their own gloves and large plastic trash bags.
Please dress appropriately for the weather.
