On Sunday, February 9th, 2014, we sent 43 of our athletes to compete at a local state tournament, AAU District Championships, held in Grayslake, IL. With the help of our hardworking coaches and supportive families, we brought home 66 medals in all: 25 gold, 23 silver, and 18 bronze!
At AAU tournaments, our students are fortunate to compete among elite athletes and are challenged to perform at their best. It is our hope that these tournaments not only serve as wonderful experiences in their karate journeys, but also as learning lessons that they can apply in their everyday life.
Congratulations to all athletes! We are grateful to kick off the tournament season on the right foot and we look forward to the rest of the season to come. The road to nationals is well underway!
