Faye Allen 2012 Gallery

We are happy to have had a strong showing, good Judo competition, and a great clinic at the 2012 Faye Allen Memorial Kata Championship and Nage no Kata Clinic.

Judo is growing…and we hope to see even more competitors and students next year. Thanks to Chuck Medani for these great photos!
