Another fun and prosperous tournament for our club!

Seven of our members attended the 2004 BC Open Karate Championships, held on Novermber 27th in Coquitlam. A total of 12 medals were won and a good time was had by all.

Although it seems that we always do well, when it comes to placing in the medals rounds, this time we set another record with each of our attending members winning a medal in the kata division. Wow!!!!! Way to go guys.

One of the toughest divisions to compete in is usually the blue/brown division and, even though everyone deserves a special mention for a superb execution of skill, both Paul and Kayla each executed, in my opinion, their best kata performance to date. Congratulations to all for a job well done.
