Hey everyone, this is just a quick reminder that Selfless Sensei Nominations will be closing tomorrow (December 15th). After that there will be a voting period for the most inspiring story, followed by the declaration of a winner. If you know an instructor who has helped in their community or acted with charitable compassion please nominate them for consideration!

The winner of this contest receives $1,000 in gear from Karate Depot. I’m very proud to be associated with this particular event as it will truly serve to help an instructor who deserves the same kindness that he/she has shown others.

Qualified nominees should exhibit a spirit of going above and beyond the normal call of duty to assist those around them. Examples include teaching at-risk youths, building community in exceptional ways, and teaching special needs students (but that certainly isn’t the limit of possibilities).

We chose to do this giveaway now to celebrate the holiday spirit and deliver one deserving teacher a gift they will remember!

UPDATE: Voting has begun (nominations closed) and will end on December 22nd. The winner will be revealed the 24th!
