Three members of the Revelstoke Shotokan Karate Club participated in the Shotokan Challenge, a biannual Canadian Shotokan Karate Association tournament competing against kids from B.C. and Alberta. The tournament took place in Calgary, AB at the Mid-Sun Community Centre on October 20, 2012.  Sensei Chic Sharp from the Revelstoke club was one of the judges at the tournament.  Isaac Starling (left), Micah Starling (right), and Sam Larson performed their katas (choreographed pattern of movement) in the Pee Wee division (< 9 yr olds). Sensei Sharp said that all three boys performed very well making no mistakes. Sam Larson came home with a silver medal out of the 11 boys in his group. Contributed by Alan Polster
