Yesterday was the Kita-Kasushika Area Karate Championships held at the Asukaru Centre in Satte City. I thought this was going to be a small local competition, I was therefore pleasantly surprised to find out that there was over 500 entrants and a reasonable number of competitors in my own divisions.

I just thought I'd mention that Amy performed very well, making her way to the finals of her division and took gold. Her FIRST EVER Individual Gold medal, a great achievement in Japan... Nice one Amy!
Making her way comfortably to the finals to win her first ever individual Gold Medal, in Japan of all places!!!
In other news, I went onto to get 2nd place after some good fighting... but I think the day was Amy's!
