Jordan Sunnas

Shodan-ho 2012

Hi, my name is Jordan Sunnus, I was born and raised in Nanaimo. I have always been a very active person I really enjoy the outdoors, a few of my hobbies are: playing paint ball with friends, camping, boating, fishing and snow boarding and of course karate.

I started karate when I was in about grade three, karate has always been my main sport, however; I have in the past also played, T-ball, ball hockey, and soccer. Iam a member of the Nanaimo Fish and Game club and enjoy doing target shooting with guns and bow and arrows, I also enjoy fishing, the biggest fish I ever caught was a 35lb spring on my 13"� birthday.

I was a member of the Boys and Girls club for many years, when I turned 12 was able to be a youth leader helping out at the younger kids club. Over the past couple of years I have been working in our dojo helping Sempei�s teach the younger students Karate.

I have been very fortunate to have been able to travel quite a lot, while in the Boys and Girls club I was selected to participate in the Tim Horton�s Camp in Kananaskis, Albert and also Camp Educo up north in 100 Mile house, an adventure camp.

Once becoming involved with Karate tournaments I have been very fortunate to travel around the Island to complete and do training, in addition I have qualified several years for the BC Provinclals in Vancouver and also for the BC Winter Games up in Terrace BC.

I could not imagine what my life would be like with out karate, it has become a part of me, it�s like family. All of the different experiences I have had with karate I would not trade them for anything.
