Karate team says thanks
The Kuujjuaq Karate Team would like to thank all the people and organizations of Kuujjuaq who generously supported their team and made this year’s annual competition a huge success! They would also like to thank the RCMP for funding $20,000 towards this trip, allowing more of our students to participate and demonstrating a belief in our youth.
Karate teams from Ontario, Alberta and across Quebec gathered at Dawson College in Montreal earlier this month for the Kentokukan Karate Fall Classic Tournament.
Some 24 Kuujjuammiut between the ages of seven and 17 years participated. Their performance, behaviour and attitude would make all of you very proud.
The Kuujjuaq Karate Team brought home three gold medals, five silver medals, three bronze medals and five honourable mentions (4th place).
We have an exceptional group of athletic youth and everyone’s support throughout the past four years has allowed our youth to pursue their goals and build lasting friendships, confidence, knowledge and discipline.
Thank-you for all your support!
Sensei Mandy Graham
