April
Prime Performance
Award

Congratulations to Alexandra for winning The LEAGUE Sport Martial Arts Championship's April Prime Performance Award. She was chosen from among martial artists across the western states.
BC Open Martial Arts Championships
Vancouver, British Columbia Canada
Representing our sponsors, Top Ten, Fighters Inc. and League of Angels, as well as Amba Martial Arts and Goju-Shorei Karate, Senseis Martin and MJ traveled to Canada to compete against Western Canada's top martial artists. Everyone who competed for League of Angels took first in the respective divisions including Sensei Martin. Sensei MJ took it a step further, by not only winning his lightweight fighting division but by also winning the Open Weight division and the 500 Canadian dollar prize.
Pacific Jewel Nationals
Portland, Oregon
Always one of our favorite stops on the national circuit, we were sad to hear that, after 21 years, this was Noah and Deanna Bertsch's last Pacific Jewel Nationals. Our Goju-Shorei dojo saved its best effort for its last. Our four green belt students competed in both intermediate and black belt divisions, winning six first places, two third places and two fourth places. Representing League of Angels, Fighters-Inc. and Top Ten, Senseis Martin, MJ and Tyler came away with one overall grand champion, four first places and one second place.
