KNL Team 2011 Atlantics

 Karate NL Team 2011 wins 18 medals at Atlantic Karate Championships (Bridgewater, NS)

 Saturday 05 February in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Karate NL Team of 13 competitors won 18 medals in Team Kata, individual Kata and Kumite (fighting).  Kata is a traditional series of fighting techniques incorporated into a pre-arranged performance by the individual as he/she visualizes fighting multiple attackers.  Team kata requires a team of 3 to synchronize their performance of the same kata.  Kumite is sport fighting where free style movement and techniques are used against a real opponent in the ring with referees and judges.  Each event has divisions - Novice, Intermediate and Advanced – these are further divided by age categories.  Karate NL Team  members all competed in the “Advanced” categories.

Team: Front L-R: Lucas Menard, Christopher Coady, Devon Fitzpatrick, Tyler Burton, Samantha Au, Mackenzie Lawlor, Alberta Hansen; Rear L-R: Wing Au (coach), Sarah Gosse, Andrew Au, Kevin Gosse, Alex Lawlor, Joshua Coady, John Stamp, Derek Ryan (referee), Kim Fitzpatrick (coach).

The team members represented NL with pride, dignity and great sportsmanship.  In addition to competing as representatives of NL, they also trained in a special 3 hr session with the Nova Scotia provincial team.  The students were well behaved, enthusiastic and performed with dedication and commitment.  Whether a medal winner or not, every member gave his/her best and NL Karate Union are proud of them all. 

NL Karate Union thanks Coaches Wing Au & Kim Fitzpatrick and their volunteers for a job well done.  As well we thank the Sport Div of the Dept of Tourism-Culture-Recreation and Sport NL for their support of such valuable opportunities for our young athletes.

 Listed below is a summary of the results.
