Gold for Carly!

Nationals this year was a big deal to us. For the first time, we had a competitor enter. And guess what? She won gold in the 11 year old, intermediate kata division! Here is the newspaper article in the DCI!

While Carly is a super-special kid, she is not unique. Her little brother who is currently throwing eye-daggers at her for all the attention she has received, is very talented for his age in kumite (sparring). In fact, we have a whole passel of kids who could do really well at the national and even international level. That’s because they show up, they work hard, have fun and receive excellent instruction and positive feedback. Take a look at our young team and let us know what you think!
