Students in the Karatatot program at Charles Water Karate & Fitness recently received fitness tips.
“We all want to be physically and mentally fit as this enables us to lead a healthy life style,” Water said. “Fitness can be achieved by proper exercises that are part of your daily schedule; this applies to both mental and physical fitness. Fitness is an intricate part of everything we do it is one of the keys to success.” Karatatot is a combination of exercise and karate in a format specifically designed for children ages 4½ and up. In a fun filled and nurturing setting your children learn concentration, discipline, respect, focus as well as an understanding of self defense at his or her own level. These children are learning child safety and stranger training. They are becoming better students at school and better listeners at home.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season.
“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”
The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against.
Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him.
