Shodan Karate of West Warwick Rhode Island is sponsoring a “Kick-a-Thon” by it’s students at the Bristol Rhode Island Soldiers home on Saturday, May 26th, at 1pm..
Youth students of Shodan Karate asked their karate teacher, “Sensei” Jeremy Brousseau, a US Army war veteran himself who was deployed to the Middle East 2000-2001, if there was anything that the Karate School could do to help out war veterans this Memorial Day. “I was truly humbled that these students would care enough to want to spend part of their three day Memorial Day weekend doing something for veterans,” said Sensei Jay.
Pvt. Peters of Cranston was awarded the “Congressional Medal Of Honor” on March 24th, 1945 for his actions while in Germany during WWII. Private Peters, U.S. Army, Company G, 507th Parachute Infantry, 17th Airborne Division would be proud of these young Karate Students “said Brousseau”.
