Our second tournament

We had our annual Funakoshi International Karate tournament on the 1st June  2013 at the Molteno farm in Grabouw.

The day was a bit too cold for my liking but a great time was had by all. We started off with a demonstration from the senior students _great to see a well coordinated demonstration in martial arts.

Griffin and myself started our day with a weapons demonstration (nunchaka’s ) we did exceptional as the nunchakas is a very advanced weapon

After we did our demonstration it was time for the unison Katas -this is when 2 or more people have to do a kata as one, it becomes more difficult the more people that are involved.
