At the same time, the coach and the club members, wishing to honor the hero of Cretan Revolution SPYROS KAGIALES, who made his body tissue and raised the Greek flag at Akrotiri (which dominates in awe of the statue), decided to change the name of the club in SPORTS CULTURAL ASSOCIATION of CHANIA "S. KAGIALES".

The way the club was and still rising, aided by all. Presidents, Boards, sportsmen, parents and friends of the club. All have helped to bring our collective, at the top of the sport in Crete, in Greece, as well as in Japan and abroad, where athletes of our club participate in big events, seminars and tournaments, with discrimination and admission at National Karate Team in the country.

The overall aim of our association was, is and will remain, the sport and education of its members, focusing on the mass sport martial arts that the club cultivates. Educational seminars and lectures that take place at times, aim to better educate its members, the promotion of healthy athletes in sport and championship, for those athletes who choose so.
