Several members of Taneda Karate who participated in a recent tournament returned with medals for their efforts.

Claire Boothe took gold in the 16 to 17 under 48 kilogram Kumite division.

Jackson Tribe received silver in the 14 to 15 under 63 kg. Kumite. Anne Ross took bronze in masters Kata and was also a referee at the event.

Brett Michaud took bronze in the 12 to 13 intermediate Kumite division.

Other medalists were Katie Becker who won gold in fighting, Mike Michaud who won gold in Kata and silver in Kumite, Micheala Russo who won gold in Kata and bronze in Kumite, Will Wright who won gold in Kata and bronze in Kumite and Taylor Hunter who won bronze in Kumite.

Instructor Chris Taneda said the competition was tough with 550 competitors, but the Summerland participants did well.

“Some who didn’t get medals did well in their fights,” he added.

While the participants have done well in their sport, Taneda said karate also gives them discipline they can use in other areas of their lives.

“It’s affected their lives in a positive direction,” he said.

Taneda Karate has been operating in Summerland since 1981, meeting weekly at Giant’s Head School.
