1st place advanced weapons kata, and Tournament Grand Champion (which is a trophy
about five feet tall!) Good job!

4/27/01 -     Awesome job at River City Days! It was definitely one of our biggest
and most exhilerating demos ever! The Taekwondo Section's flying board breaks,
Capoeira's exciting rhythmic acrobatics, Wushu's new team forms, Kempo's Pinan
Shodan, Tai Chi's graceful presentation, and the massive Soul Edge weapons fight
at the end made an absolutely amazing presentation. Everyone kicked ass together
and put on an awesome show.

"The kids loved it." -Gabo Ly
