Uniplay are delighted to offer support and sponsorship to a range of sporting clubs, helping to encourage sport and activity in our local community.
We recently took the opportunity to add to the local sport initiatives we support and add Tokon Taiki Karate Club in Ashton-in-Makerfield to the Uniplay team.
Tokon Taiki Karate headed by its Chief Instructor Orang Ranjbar Sensei 5th Dan Shotokan, are members United Karate England UKE, which in turn are members of World Union of Karate Do Federation WUKF. Tokon Taiki is also member of WUKO-Great Britain which is directly affiliated to the World Karate Body “World United Karate Organization & Associated Disciplines” WUKO & AD.
Orang Ranjbar Sensei is the President of WUKO-GB as well as the European chairman for WUKO&AD.
Karate, like many sports, offers a wealth of different opportunities and teaches young children great, transferable values. Having experienced the teaching offered by Tokon Taiki, Uniplay’s Managing Director Paul Riley was delighted to offer support to this incredible club where both of his son’s currently attend classes. Felix, age 4 has just completed his third badge and younger son Teddy, age 3 his second. Felix is showing great aptitude for Karate and will soon be moving up to belt classes, while Teddy loves having fun in his lessons.
Tokon Taiki focus on discipline and respect for oneself and others, physical co-ordination, teamwork and building relationships with their fellow peers. Tokon Taiki also help to give participants a sense of focus, which naturally filters through to homework and other day to day routines.
The club offers the opportunity to begin, or continue karate training, during which various aspects of the martial art will be covered including the syllabus towards grade/belt promotions, along with self-defense and competition skills.
Tokon Taiki offer their members access to training sessions every week, as well as courses and regular opportunities to attend and compete in local, national and international competitions.
Uniplay are delighted to support Tokon Taiki and look forward to updating you with their achievements.
