Fall Brawl

Team Kumite traveled to the first Fall Brawl in Altonna, PA hosted by Steve Morrissey and the  PMA Pennsylvania Martial Arts Alliance. Billy Leader was honored as the Grand Champion “Best of the Best” for sparring.  He also took an inadvertent elbow that gave him a bloody nose, but if you know anything about the Leaders… that only motivated him more!  Also winning first place at the tournament were Liz Leaseburg, Gabriel Anthony, Cameron Klos, Ryan Frankovic, Marie Mosa.  Second place winners Rachel, Gavin and Travis.  Winning third place was Luke and Colten.  In most cases, the team had to eliminate each other in the run offs, but everyone showed great sportsmanship.  Next stop… the NBL Spooktacular Karate Championships in Millersburg, OH.
