About Kelly Worley

Mr. Worley began his karate career in 1977 and received his first degree black belt in 1991. Shortly thereafter, he earned the title of #1 overall forms and sparring competitor in the NCKA for two consecutive years. Over the course of his teaching life, one of his many joys is seeing his students from the past bring their children to receive the same training they received from him as children.

Friends, Family and students of Chaska National Karate:

A very heartfelt “THANK YOU” for your generous donations to the Cornerstone Christmas Shop.

Because of you, we will be able to serve the 386 children who signed up to “shop”
for Christmas presents for their Mom and siblings.

No child should ever have to be affected by domestic violence but to those who have, having a Merry Christmas helps their healing.

Again, “THANK YOU” and may you be blessed and have the happiest of holiday season!

Mrs. Sexton.

The December black belt was held on Saturday in Hopkins.

At the conclusion of each exam, the Black Belt Panel nominates students who they feel had exceptional exams. Two students are then chosen to have their black belt tied on by 10th Degree Grand Master John Worley.

Of the students nominated, Chaska had 2 students who were in consideration for this honor, Kailee Hills and Cohen Haugen. In the end, Cohen and a student from St . Cloud were awarded this honor.

Congratulations Cohen!
