ParagonInc

We are much more than just a karate school or fun activity, we are a family that creates superheroes!

ParagonInc teaches students that by focusing on their own behaviour they can influence the world in a positive way. We focus on helping each of our students become a Superhero through our innovative programs.

Operating as usual

We had a great time last week during our annual Parents' Night Out! Our superheroes enjoyed an evening of karate games and movie watching, while their parents got to enjoy an evening to themselves for an early Valentine's Day. This is always a hugely popular event, and we love providing this opportunity for both kids and parents. It's always a fun night for everyone! Thank you to everyone who came along ❤

Happy Lunar New Year to all our families! Keep an eye out for our limited edition 2024 'Year of the Dragon' merch, coming soon 🐉

Thank you to all our families who joined us last week at our Welcome Back Picnic at Lysterfield Lake Park. We had the best time chatting and eating and swimming and of course, the favourite, our epic teacher vs student waterfight! (Yes, the kids did win, after we surrendered!)

Today is Sensei Cameron’s birthday. As we remember him, and reflect on his life and legacy, we wanted to share something he wrote about his journey. Sensei Cameron knew that almost everything he said or wrote was heard by others through the filter of his cancer and prognosis. He yearned for his messages about living life well and striving to be the best version of ourselves to be heard because they were important in their own right, not because they were lessons from a dying man. Here is the first post in a series he called “Cancer and Other C words”. We hope this helps remember him to everyone who knew him, and is a nice introduction for those who didn’t.

Happy Birthday Sensei. ❤🐿

Happy New Year to all our amazing Superhero Families! Thank you so much for being a part of our community. We are looking forward to new challenges, adventures and so many more great times with everyone of you this year. Enjoy the rest of your holiday break, and stay safe. We can’t wait to see you all back in classes from next Monday, 8th January 2024! 🥳🎉🎆💥🥋

23/12/2023

And that's a wrap on classes for 2023!

2023 has been a huge year for Paragon, marking 25 years since the school was founded by Sensei Cameron. It has been a great opportunity to look back at how we have developed from a karate school to a superhero school, and to look forward to the future of Paragon as well. We have had so many new families join us in their superhero journeys this year, and we're so grateful for everyone in our community, new and old.

From Team Paragon, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a wonderful New Year! 🎄🎆

18/12/2023

Thank you to everyone who came along to our Christmas Party! Even with the wacky weather, we had a great time at the supercentre - playing games, catching up with everyone over picnic foods, and welcoming our very special visitor 🎅

Christmas classes will run all throughout this week, with our last classes for the year on Saturday 23rd December 🎄

25/11/2023

Well done to everyone who took part in the Paragon Karate Challenge last week! It was so fantastic to see all our participants take on the challenges of sparring, kata, and board breaking. Everyone demonstrated super courage and resilience, and absolutely smashed it in order to earn their trophies! 🏆🦸

30/10/2023

Thank you to everyone who came to our Haunted Halloween Party! We had a wonderful time exploring all that our world famous ghost town, Ghostville had to offer! Big love to our building and creative supercrew for their massive efforts, and to our community for bringing the joy as always! It was a fantastic night! 👻🎃🧟‍♂️

22/09/2023

Congratulations to all our students who graduated last week, showing super focus, perseverance, and excellence. Check our littlest superheroes, the Tiny Tumblers, showing their best focus and black belt sitting 🥋🎉

Regular classes are still running during the school holidays - come along for some fun and to get a head start on next term's curriculum!

A huge thank you to everyone who attended our 25th birthday party earlier this month! It was such a special night, and it was fantastic to see so many of the families that make up our wonderful community come together to celebrate. The night was full of joy and teenage mutant ninja turtles - we even managed to squeeze in a jumping castle!

Thank you to everyone who supported Paragon's Push Up Challenge last month! As everyone banks their last pushups and makes their final donations, we wanted to let you know that our participants completed a massive 38,488 pushups, and our awesome community raised $2,530 in donations for the Push For Better Foundation, Lifeline, and Movember. Thank you to everyone who took part - by doing push-ups, making donations, learning more about mental health, and taking the time to check in with the people around you. A super effort from all!

23/06/2023

This term, many of our students have been doing The Push-Up Challenge. The challenge is aimed at raising awareness around mental health, and participants are challenged to do 3,144 push-ups in recognition of the 3,144 Australian lives lost to su***de in 2021.

Kindness is one of the most important values that we hold here at Paragon, and it feels very fitting that the push-up number on the final day is about kindness. Well done to everyone who has taken part in the challenge, and thank you to everyone who has donated to our page: www.thepushupchallenge.com.au/fundraisers/TeamParagonParagonInc

It's time for another ! 🥰

Congratulations to our new Paragon black belts! You worked so hard, both during the test and in all the time leading up to it, and demonstrated Paragon's black belt qualities to the highest degree. We can't wait to see what our newest Sempais will continue to achieve in this next phase of their journeys 🥋

14/05/2023

Happy Mothers Day to all our Supermums! We hope you are having a wonderful day with your little (or big) superheroes! For those who are doing it tough today, who are separated by time or distance, or have lost their mums, and mums who are missing their children, we are thinking of you, and hope you are able to hold close your precious memories. And for those who do motherhood tough everyday, we see you. Whatever you are doing, we hope you are feeling big love today. 🦸‍♀️💐❤️

I am a superhero! I do the right thing! Practice builds my superpowers! When I see a wrong, I fix it!

In Term 1, our Tiny Tumblers and Ninja Kids learned our Superhero Code of Conduct! With its superhero moves and simple phrasing, it's easy for the kids to remember, but carries an important message. We love seeing our kids grow in confidence and learn to recite their code by heart! 🦸

The rainy weather on Saturday definitely didn't keep the Easter Bunny away! We had a fantastic turnout of students who were all ready to do their pushups and gather Easter eggs from throughout the obstacle course. All our kids showed egg-cellent self-control in collecting only one egg at a time, and waiting until the end of the event to enjoy their haul of the chocolate - and trust us, we know how hard that is!

We hope everyone had a great Easter weekend filled with joy and chocolate (and pushups!) 🐰🐣🍫

07/04/2023

Congratulations to everyone who earned their new belt or sash last week! All our students displayed amazing focus and superness in performing everything they have learned this term. Well done! 🥋

Today marks the 4th anniversary of the passing of our Sensei Cameron. As is our tradition as custodians of his legacy, we would like to share with our community a story from his unpublished writings, as well as our reflections on this time, to remember him to everyone who knew him, and to introduce him to those who didn’t. There are three blog posts in this mini series: Sensei Cameron’s, then a perspective from Sensei Nathan and from Sempai T.

We're not reaching too far back with this photo - just to last year's Karate Challenge! All our students did an awesome job in their formal, non-contact sparring, and demonstrated super respect to each other 🤝

This term, the story for our Tiny Tumblers and Ninja Kids classes is all about discovering a Superhero School and learning about the different ways that we can become real life superheroes. Here are some of our Ninja Kids practicing their super strength in push-up position. Well done, superheroes!

It's - Time to share some words from one of our wonderful Super Families!

Another successful Parents' Night Out! The kids had a fantastic time playing some karate games, watching a movie, and then rounding out the evening with some Lego building. Meanwhile, parents got to enjoy date night - or just a few hours of peace and quiet!
