Thirty two of our club members didn't need to travel far to take part in the 10th Annual Wado Kai Victoria Invitational Karate Tournament, held on November 4th, in Victoria B.C. In a nutshell, it was a very fun tournament.

This tournament is unique as participants, for one fee, can enter numerous events and challange themselves against higher ranked belts and/or higher age level participants. Many of our members took that challenge and a total of sixty-one medals left the building in the hands of our club members. A number of our members won medals against higher ranked oponents (which explains some of the strange/duplicate medal standings below).

Of course, medals are just icing on the cake. Medal counts never accurately depict the level of skill and sportsmanship displayed by our members -- for that, you simply have to be there. This tournament demonstrated some incredible team spirit and commaradery as well as producing a number of "out-of-club" friendships.

Congratulations to all of our club members and thank you for representing our club with so much class!
