Shoto Ryu Jutsu Karate sent 4 students, 1 official to Charlottetown event

Competitors from Shoto Ryu Jutsu Karate of Yarmouth travelled to Charlottetown, P.E.I., for an Atlantic karate event on the Victoria Day weekend and they returned with 10 medals – a gold, six silver and three bronze.

The following are Yarmouth results:

Ryder Lusk won bronze in kata (forms), silver in team kata, gold in team kumite (sparring).

Matthew Ellis won bronze in men’s kata, silver in team kata, silver in team kumite.

Michael Feener won silver in team kata, silver in male team kumite.

Austin Ellis won bronze in kata, silver in flag kumite (ninja turtles).

The Charlottetown event drew karate students from the Atlantic provinces.

The event was held by the Tsuruoka Karate Organization. This was the first time the organization used Karate Canada and WKF (World Karate Federation) karate rules, “allowing for a smoothly run karate tournament, due to the many provincial referees that are Karate Canada certified,” said a press release from the Shoto Ryu Jutsu club.

Rob Sweeney of the Yarmouth club attended the event as an official.
