JSKA Karate World Championship in Cancun - Album II

We're back home after a great tourrnament. I won 3rd place in kata and the rest of the tournament went great. Here are more pictures.

Well, this was back to work. :)


  1. Congratulations on third place in forms, that's fantastic! I know the competition had to be fierce so that's a huge accomplishment. And I love the pictures!

    1. Aww, thank you Heather! Yes, the competition was strong. There were about 15 girls in my division and some of them were members of the Mexican national team. The girl who came in second was the daughter of one of the Japanese senseis. Considering I wasn't even sure I was going to compete, it's ok lol
