Shodan Petrona Alexander won an automatic second place in both Kata and Kumite.
But it was her exhibition of GION kata that won her a thunderous applause. However, that was not sufficient to topple the spirited & electrifying performance of aspiring Shodan Roseline Jacque Unn Toc of Gaet Karate School-Robert’ whose performance in Kata and Kumite, but particularly Kumite, was an excellent Technical display in control, speed, aggression and technique.
Young potential, Kyu Lil Sylvest, a student of Saint Mary’s College, gives a creditable account of himself, both in Kata and Kumite.
Shodan Petrona Alexander, Nyim Wilkie and Lil Sylvest are National Squad Members of “Karate Do Federation Saint Lucia” – the National Body.
