)-- Sensei Chris Feldt, owner and chief instructor for Samurai Karate Studio, located in Richland Northeast Columbia, South Carolina, recently announced his school participated in the ALS Walk in Columbia and collected over $1,000 in donations.
"One of my students and her mom led this community service project and did an awesome job raising awareness for the event and collecting donations," commented Sensei Feldt.
Community service is one of the rank requirements at Samurai Karate Studio and all students are expected to pick a project idea, plan it, lead it and execute it.
"My school is a little different from other martial art's schools," commented Feldt, "we practice what's called Project Based Experiential Leadership. The idea is for my students to get real world leadership experience by participating in a community service project that they are passionate about. In the end, I am trying to develop students with great character and leadership skills!"
Samurai Karate Studio teaches karate to children and adults, beginning at age 4 and up. The karate program includes self defense, with an emphasis on character and leadership development.
