Dojo results from 2011 JKA/AF Nationals

Congratulations team!  We had a splendid time in Miami at the tournament. Hard training, strong spirit, great camaraderie and good cheer at this annual event.  Miami Shotokan Karate Club were excellent hosts for our karate community.  Thank you parents and family who came and supported us.  Although there were some injuries this year – we came through it with the experience for improvement.  A new Women’s Kata team is formed!  Thank you Doreen for stepping up.

CONGRATULATIONS to WAURIMAN BORGES who passed his SANDAN test!  You made us proud.
