2014 Funakoshi World Karate Cup

A great turn out! Thank you to everyone that supported our very own JKA NorCal (US team members) who participated in the recent Funakoshi World Karate Cup held in Tokyo, Japan. This is a world tournament that is held every 3 years – hosted in Japan this year. 53 countries participated with estimated numbers of more than 1200 world-class competitors.
