More than 40 competitors, from ages 5 to 55 years, heated up the Twinsburg Karate Institute at the Winter Points Tournament Feb. 7.
Students from the school protected their home turf by earning dozens of trophies and medals, and out-scoring the competitors from the Munson and Cleveland Karate Institutes.
Competitors battled for first place in kumite (sparring), chanbara sparring (padded weapons), kata (forms) and weapons kata. The katas were scored on an Olympic point system.
The first competitor to score three hits won in sparring.
