Jared Lee and Faith Moreno, both students and assistant instructors from Genbu-Kai Karate, recently traveled to Orlando to compete in the annual ISKA (International Sport Karate Association) U.S. Open tournament.
Lee placed first in kata (forms), kumite (sparring) and kobudo (weapon forms), while Moreno placed first in kata and second in kumite. It was Moreno’s first tournament.
Moreno currently trains in the karate program at Genbu-Kai, while Lee trains in all three disciplines offered at the school: karate, Okinawan kobudo (weapons) and batto-do (the Japanese art of drawing and cutting with the katana).
Genbu-Kai Karate is located in the Wellington Marketplace. For more information on classes, call (561) 804-1002 or visit www.floridagenbukai.com.
