)-- Sensei Chris Feldt, owner and chief instructor for Samurai Karate Studio, located in Richland Northeast Columbia, South Carolina, recently announced his school collected new and used blankets and toiletry supplies that were handed out to the local homeless of Columbia on Christmas Evening.
"This project was organized by one of my students, Randy Baccomo, who has been doing this the past few years," commented Feldt. "The first year, he went out on his own with a few blankets he had lying around the house. This year, we spent the month of November and December and collected over 25 blankets to hand out."
The community service project is part of the training curriculum at Samurai Karate Studio. All students who test for Black belt must complete at least one service project in the community.
"The word Samurai means "one who serves"," commented Feldt. One of the important missions of my school, is to develop a sense of service, which is what being a Black belt is all about!"
Samurai Karate Studio teaches karate to children and adults beginning at age 4 and up.
