During Spring Break the Victory Martial Arts competition team traveled to Las Vegas to compete in the USKA National Karate Championships. In all we had 19 dedicated Students who competed in the event; our school had the 4th largest team there. Of those 19 students, 13 placed in the top 3 and brought home 29 awards!!! We had 7 First Place Winners who received the title of National Champion, plus 9 Second Place Winners, 6 Third Place Winners and a total of 7 went to finals to compete for the title of Grand Champion.
All the awards aside, high ranking black belt judges, tournament officials and USKA Hall of Fame Members had nothing but wonderful things to say about all of our students and their performances, so we couldn't possibly be more proud of each and every one of them! The event was fun and exciting and really helped our students get a feel for the level of training necessary to win National and World karate titles. We even had the honor of seeing live demonstrations by the head of our karate system, Hanshi Robert Bowles and world renowned martial arts legend, Sensei Fumio Demura.
