First Karate Tournament (Events)

On September 29th, 2001, James and Alex participated in their first Karate tournament. They had been studying for about 2 months after getting introduced to the martial arts in summer camp. Dad has been studying as well – in his words, “I must keep ahead of the children so they don't beat me to a pulp and make me take them to Toys-R-Us!”

Both boys participated in the Kata (forms) competition, performing the Shihono (4 winds) Kata. James came in first in his group, Alex came in second!
