UVM Tournament Results

Congratulations to everyone who competed this weekend at our tournament. We had 62 competitors from 14 different schools in Montreal, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York. A big thank you to all of the teams especially GAMMA and West Island JJ (Rene and Georgia you guys rock!) that came and supported this event.

Thank you to HCK www.howardliu.com for providing us with a great kimono as the main prize of our purple and blue belt absolute.

Rene, How is Anthony doing?

Looks like a strain, not a tear, which is good. Hopefully his mutant healing factor will kick in :)

Great to hear. Best wishes for a speedy recovery from all the guys at Catamount.

Thanks!
