We are a family oriented club promoting and teaching the art of Shotokan Karate as well as street defence.
Our primary goal is to develop self-confidence and discipline, while teaching self defence techniques that will enable our students to protect themselves in dangerous situations and to deal with life's more unpleasant moments. Along with the student's physical fitness and mastering of techniques, there should also be mental and emotional growth and development. We do not promote aggressive behaviour, and such conduct is not tolerated.
Our mandate is to build a neighbourhood of strata-titled housing for seniors that is affordable, environmentally friendly, and socially/culturally supportive, allowing people to flourish through mutual support as they age in place and in community.
The Sooke Children's Garden Club meets monthly from May till October; all children from the age of 3 are welcome to attend to learn 'how to grow'. The club is free for families and thanks the Sooke Lions, Harbourside Lions and the Rotary Club for their support.
We offer the opportunity for children to learn the basics of gardening, environmental stewardship, encourage them to volunteer in our community and support the Sooke Fall Fair.
What we do... a) promote and facilitate sailing education across all age ranges b) promote water safety and seamanship in the Sooke area c) promote the physical, sport and social aspects of sailing and share a common interest and knowledge base. Currently we are hosting a sailing school for kids in July in Sooke for kids 6 to 14 years old. There will be three one week classes in July.
ALM Organic Farm is located in Sooke on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. We are a group of people who want to live on the land lightly. The farm was first started by Jan and Mary Alice Johnson about 20 years ago. Since then many others have added their skills and labour to make the farm a more beautiful productive place. We aspire to learning and practicing the skills needed to live sustainably in our community. Part of this is educating ourselves and others.
