Posted by Hayabusa Karate on October 25, 2011 at 2:35 AM

On October 23rd, 2011, our white belts participated in the Zone 5 Qualifying Tournament. Zone 5 includes Vancouver, North Vancouver, West Vancouver and Squamish. The winners of the competition will have a chance to compete at the BC Provincial Championships next month!


Five-year-old Maria (Masha) Mincov won a Gold medal in Kumite (fighting) and a Silver medal in Kata (form) in the “Girls 7 and under” category. Masha has only been training for 6 months and was the youngest competitor in her division.


Six-year-old Mehar Mehmi won 2 Bronze medals in the “Girls 7 and under” category. Mehar competed in both Kata and Kumite for the very first time. Mehar’s four-year-old brother, Arman Mehmi, eagerly supported Mehar at the competition. Arman anticipates the day when he can compete as well.


Andrei Mincov won 2 Silver medals in the "Men's Beginner" category. All three white belts qualified for the Karate BC Provincial Championships which will occur on November 26th and 27th at BCIT.

Congratulations and keep up the hard work!
