The students of IVDU LI have been privileged to host a weekly karate class with Master Eli Chaikin of Pakua Long Island for the past year and a half. Master Eli has been teaching the students not only how to punch and kick, but about the need for self-discipline, in order to achieve greater goals both in karate and in their day-to-day lives.

Master Eli has been coming weekly to IVDU LI to train the students; but this week, the students were fortunate to join Master Eli at his studio at Pakua LI in Hewlett. The students enjoyed this trip, giving them the full karate experience. Master Eli was able to challenge the class to use new equipment to hone their skills. The students look forward to returning to the studio and expanding their karate skills.
