Then on to the Top 10 Weapons Tournament, where Ms. Johnson, Mrs. Powell and Mr. Webb each put on a great performance.

While this was a tuff day for our teammates, none of them offered excuses and Mrs. Powell summed it up perfectly by stating “competing in the Top 10 at Worlds is a Honor in itself”.? Well that was today, and with some much deserved sleep our team will be back with even more determination tomorrow – Top 10 Forms and Sparring Tournaments!? Then off to the Opening Ceremony’s at the Little Rock Alltel Arena, we hope all of you will join in and watch the live broadcast (here on this website), and enjoy the festivities!
