Four German karate experts from the University of Freiburg (Front row) judged a joint German and Canadian karate tournament held at the Canadian Caserne recently. The winner of the top prize was Reinhardt Reiger, 18, of the Lahr German Karate Club (Front row centre). There was awards made to ten other contestants (Rear row).

My Congratulations to all the medallion winners. If I had to present a medallion to any of the competitors, my choice would be Mr Mike Botting. Although Mike has only been practicing Karate for three weeks, he entered the Best Beginners class knowing that he stood very little chance of winning a medallion. As he said, "I'm only entering for the experience". Well done Mike. (Incidentally he didn't place last).

The Beginners Course started Monday night and I was very happy to see the turnout. If you are interested in joining us come on down and join the Beginners Class. By the time you read this column the Class will have had only three hours Karate experience and it's not too late to catch up.

Karate yellow belt holder Catherine McGee gives a knife hand block while performing the karate movement known as Heian Nidan which is the karate defence against multiple assailants. Catherine was one of the contestants who took part in a joint German and Canadian karate tournament at the Canadian Caserne last Saturday. The participants were judged on their ability to execute the various karate movements by four German karate experts, including two black belt holders, from the University of Freiburg. Catherine won a bronze medal as the second highest placed lady contestant.
