Earlier this month, the New Providence Martial Arts & Fitness Centre (NPMAFC), led by instructors Sensei Chin and Sensei Evans, traveled with a team of 13 young Bahamians to compete in the Miami Taikai Karate Tournament in Miami, Fla.
The martial arts school was invited by Sensei Luis Sanchez, director of Miami Taikai, to participate in a one-day competition, which was held at the Double Tree Inn Convention Center in Miami. The event hosted athletes of the Florida, Pan American and world level. It was a fair and just event and provided an advanced level of competition.
"The team of 13 did extremely well," said Sensei Chin. "While none of our kids won their divisions, many of our young competitors placed in the top three of their divisions. In total, we returned home with 13 trophies," she said. "From the NPMAFC, we would like to congratulate all of our competitors on their achievements and commend them on such good behavior. They represented their country well."
The NPMAFC team comprised of Miles Ferguson, Nkume Ijeoma, Jadyn Munnings, Chianna Diggiss, Khory Moss, Charles William Diggiss, Chigozie Ijeoma Jr., William Knowles, Casey Myles Scavella, Kyle Moss, Nathaniel Woodside, Joshua Dames and Sy LaRoda. They were accompanied by Sensei Chinyere Ijeoma-Chukwuka and Sensei Roland Alexander Evans III.
