Representing Canada

IMG_0233Me with Canadian teammates from Alberta and from my dojo, Elite Martial Arts, in Dublin, Ireland

 

Last year I went to the WKC World Championship in Dublin, Ireland to represent Canada. It was such an exciting competition and I brought home the Gold in continuous light contact fighting as well as three bronze medals. This year it’s my third year on team Canada and the Worlds are in Orlando but this one will be a little different for me because on top of fighting I will also compete in traditional weapons with my katana. Walking in with your teammates at Opening Ceremonies with the Canadian flag around your shoulders is such an honour. Making new friends is always fun as well as seeing old ones like my teammates from 5 Elements in Calgary. But for now I’m training hard at Elite Martial Arts to be battle ready come November. I just want to finish by saying a big thank-you to all those that support me including my coaches, teammates and sponsors. If you want to help me out let me know. THANKS!
