    Barstow karate students do well at Corona tournament

    The American Karate Association of Champions of Barstow Park and Recreation District, instructed by sixth degree black belt, Linda Pugliese, assistant instructors, third degree black belt Pat Chavez, and Sempai Teri Wright, competed at the Pumpkin Patch Classic in Corona at Santiago High School.

    n the front row of the picture from left to right, Kaytlyn Young, 6, placed first in white belt sparring, the only female in her division battling with competitors twice her size. She also placed second in kata, and won a meritorious award for her outstanding performance in the showmanship division. Her musical performance was done to the music from "Batman" in her bat girl attire, black mask and ears, and a sequined bat cape, designed by her grandmother Kathy Case. Jack Gilbert, 12, green belt, received meritorious awards in his showmanship kata, "The Deadly Dragon" where he exhibited a dragon puppet and lip synced words from the intro of the popular video game "Halo", then performed his flashy bo staff kata to the music of "Down With the Sickness", which won him a meritorious award in kata. Kayla Baca, 8, yellow belt, placed third in yellow belt kata and placed second in Sparring. In the back row from left to right, Hannah Stolte, 18, white belt, champion winner, placed first in kata and first in Sparring; Ben Gresick, 17, Blue Belt, placed first in kata, and first in sparring. Hannah and Ben teamed up to compete in the showmanship division with a choreographed fight from the "Matrix" music. Sensei Pat Chavez placed second in masters division of black belt kata. Philip Baca, 12, yellow belt, placed third in kata and won a meritorious award in Sparring.

    McDojos: Corrupting martial arts since 1992!

    Seriously, some MAs are going down the shitter. Can't these people go and fuck up some other activity, like ballet or something?
    I'm not drowning my sorrows, I'm preserving them in alcohol.

        they aren't even trying anymore, to make it look like martial arts that is.
        I remember a tournament I went too, even before I found bullshido, I knew that musical kata was shitty, especially hearing they're pitiful kiaiis that went.
        YIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII *breath* IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIII.

        but a BATGIRL costume?! what the ****!

          As long as people don't associate it with martial arts(it doesn't look like martial arts) or self defense value, who cares.

                on the other hand -
                I am sure my kids class would love it, if I would allow them next time to turn up in their favourite super-hero costume.

                I won't

                  Sweet, got moved to News, and I was contemplating not posting it.
                  Glad my coding for emphasis was left in.

                    just googled "musical kata karate " the amount of crap coming up is endless.
                    One competition even had a category " comical pairs "
                    WTF is going in that sport?

                      I wonder how long it will take for it to reach the olympics - synchronised katas. Much like the synchronised cage fighting that you can see on cable. At least WWE knows it is for entertainment, not a martial art! :wrestlerf

                        The fat kid in the picture is wearing capri's.


                        Just thought it needed to be mentioned.

                        Things like this is why I tell people I do sub wrestling (usually I don't say anything actually) and get annoyed when my wife says I have to go to martial arts class.

                          Funny.
                          "It does not matter who the master is. It does not matter what the face looks like. The masters are of the Qimen school of qigong/meditation which is related to Zen. The master wears white robes, and the predecessor master wears bright gold robes. The qimen school travels the univers and is not restricted to what paradise they live in. It has many masters" -Serious Harm

                            Future Olympic "Martial Arts" Triathalon: Musical kata, board breaking with head,
                            no-contact sparring with points awarded to the most 'creative' moves (cool-looking)

                            Fricken Taebo world, it wouldn't be so bad if it was just a little offshoot, but it seems
                            like fewer and fewer want to embrace the 'martial' side.

                              I would add in 'Deadliest Dim Mak' and don't forget the ESPN Favorite -- 'Team Katas', complete with chrome bo's and nunchaku. I almost passed out the first time I saw that on my TV.
