Special to the Tribune


Shinpu-Ren students and instructors returned to Prescott Valley with 89 Top Four National Positions. There were a total of 27 National Fist Place Titles and 27 second place titles won. Attending the USKA National Championships in Las Vegas Nevada were 21 students and 2 instructors.

The tournament was at the LVH Convention Center March 28-30. The youngest competitor was 5-year-old Konner Nagle, one of SPRFK's Mighty Mights, who placed in all four of the events he entered.

Also of special mention was Grand Champion winner Robert Hood who defeated all first place winners in all youth competitor divisions.

Three of the students Triple Crowned, taking a National Champion Title three times: Reyanna Hood, Ceilie Plucinsky and Chelsea Stewart.

All of the students that competed did exceptionally well and have made the instructors very proud of their effort and commitment to their training and sportsmanship.

The National Championships are by invitation only to those competitors that have placed in the top four nationally and at a state or regional level during the current annual point season.

Students and parents worked hard this year to fine tune skills and also in fundraising to make sure everyone who qualified could attend.

The annual Kick-a-Thon held at Freedom Station raised enough to donate $1,000 to a local family struggling with cancer. Shinpu-Ren students consistently work at upholding the Bushido code of Justice, Bravery, Benevolence, Politeness, Veracity, Honor and Loyalty in their training, their everyday lives and dedication to the community.
