SAN IGNACIO, CAYO, Mon. Feb. 16, 2015–Members of the Cayo Shotokan Karate Club, Belmopan and San Ignacio branches, including four members of the Belize Karate National Team, successfully competed last weekend in the El Salvador Open Championship held in San Salvador. Nine countries, ranging from the USA, Mexico and Argentina to all of the countries of Central America, took part in the event.

At the end of the two days of seminars and competition, the Belizean athletes came away with seven medals: one gold by Kaylon Dyck in the Male Advance Category, age 12-15; 3 silver – Kaylon Dyck in Kumite, Cesar Dyck in Kata, and Asha Pastor in Kumite; and 3 bronze medals – 2 by Briane Guzman in both Kata and Kumite, and 1 by Basil Brown in Kumite.

The Belize Karate Federation (BKF) congratulates these young athletes, and takes this opportunity to welcome the Belize National Karate Team to its Preparatory Training Camp, in preparation for the upcoming Central American Karate Championships (CCONDEKA), to be held in San Ignacio later this month.
