    Bob White Invitational – Thank you all

    ====================

    This past weekend’s BWI was a great success.

    There are so many people we have to thank that there is no way we can name them all.

    Thanks to the BWI team and our Captains for your unbelievable dedication and commitment.

    Thanks to all the people who volunteered and spent all day judging and working.

    Thanks to all the school owners who brought your students and supported this event.

    Thanks to all our guests and Kenpo Seniors who came by to support the event.

    Thanks to all the people who donated goods, services and finances.

    And so on, like I said I could spend hours naming all the people who helped make this event a success.

    Here are some highlights other than just the great competition:

    Hearing all the kids gasping in amazement at Professor Paul Dye’s incredible demo
    Seeing the look on Shelene Hearring’s face as she gave a student the Steve Hearring Memorial Award
    Receiving a donation from the Hollywood PAL kids. These kids have nothing to give, but they held their own fundraiser to make an additional donation to the RFKC.
    Seeing the smile on Sigung LaBounty’s face as a row of little kids marched to the ring with their sparring pads on.

    Finally here is the entire reason for the tournament. In 2006 we donated $12,000 to the RFKC. In 2007 we were able to double that to $24,000. Last night Bob White’s Karate Studio was honored and humbled to present a check to the RFKC for $48,000.

    Once again I have to thank you all on behalf of BWKS, the RFKC and the Kids who need our help.

    Gratefully yours,
    Vishal Shukla
    A proud member of Bob White’s Karate Studio

    Definitely a worthwhile cause, and a fun tournament to attend, even if it is only for the 18-and-under competitors. I entered my son in three of the four divisions and it was great to see him compete and have fun. My instructor also came and volunteered as a judge for the showmanship category, and he also ran a sparring ring.

    My only regret of the day is that I did not plan ahead to get the camcorder that I normally use to tape events, so I had to go with my old backup camcorder. The old battery failed me just as Mr. Dye began his demonstration. ARGH! But I really enjoyed that demonstration of top skill. My kid was one of those kids gasping in amazement at the demo. I told him, "you can move like that one day if you keep working hard like you do." He just smiled and stared on in amazment.
