I was so fortunate to be part of such an incredible era in Canadian Rowing and I want to do something to recognize this 20th anniversary: I want to do something that gives back.When the opportunity to ride in the 200km Ride to Conquer Cancer came along I knew that this was my opportunity.

The traditional teachings and style of Shihan Nishime are taught to all students in classes at the Okinawan Karate School located in Belleville, Columbia and Waterloo.Many of the blog entries I’ve posted here are intended to share what I’ve learned, to help others when I can. 20 years ago this July, I was part of something special.At the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, I was on a rowing team that won 6 Olympic medals; Canada set the rowing world on fire!When my rowing partner, Kathleen Heddle and I won our 3 gold medal – and a bronze the next day – we set a standard that has yet to be met by any Canadian Summer Olympian.The Okinawan Karate School in Illinois is affiliated with the Nishime Family of Dojos and the Ryukyu Bujutsu Kenkyu Doyukai (Ryukyu Ancient Weapons Research Organization).The Okinawan Karate School is under the direction of Sensei Ken Valentine.

After more than 25 years of training, Sensei Valentine now holds the rank of 6th-degree black belt in Shorin-ryu Karate and Nidan or 2nd-degree black belt in Yamanni-Ryu Kobudo.

Sensei Valentine has 18 years of instructional experience and has been head instructor at the Dojo since 1996.

He continues to train under the great Okinawan Martial Artist, Master (Shihan) Kiyoshi Nishime.
