A Big Thank You!

We just wanted to send a Very Big Thank You to everyone who came out and competed in the tournament on Saturday (July 14, 2012) at Amador High School and a Very Special Thank You to everyone who came out to watch.  We had a great time and we hope you all did as well.

Don't forget that this tournament was a qualifying tournament for the Irish Cup international tournament that will be taking place next summer.  If you competed or have any questions about qualifying for the Irish Cup please contact us.

This is a picture of the sparring grand champion.  Also, on the far left is Robin Taberna, the founder of the GSKA Karate Tournament circuit and the last two people on the right are Sensei Rodney Peoples and his son Sensei Michael Peoples from the KSW Karate dojo who helped judge the tournament.

The grand champion of kata.

In this picture Robin Taberna and his wife Janis Taberna, these are the founders of the Golden State Karate Association and we were honored to assist them in bringing a karate tournament to Amador County.

We also want to thank our sponsors for this tournament because without them this would not have happened.  American Legion post 108, American Legion Ambulance, American Legion Riders, Dan Duran and Nationwide Insurance, Sterling Auto Repair, Get Ripped Nutrition, Fastenal of Jackson, Frontier Minimart Pine Grove 76 station, and Blue Moon cafe in Pine Grove.
