Numerous outstanding performances were recorded when the Association Do Shotokan Karate – Guyana (ASK-G) hosted its 2019 National championships on Sunday February 17th last at the YMCA Thomas Lands.
The action packed event saw youths from Dojos including Berbice, Linden, West Bank Demerara, East Bank Demerara and Georgetown performing their hearts out for success in their divisions, while the adult athletes also impressed. The male Katas were extremely entertaining with Roger Peroune once again defeating the opposition convincingly.
The Kumite saw some explosive fights with Shemar Parkinson rising to the occasion defeating Malcolm Francis in a heated battle that saw both sides at 1/2 point each, with Parkinson overcoming Francis near the end with the additional 1/2 point. Parkinson then defeated Beaton to advance to the final.
On the other side of the spectrum, Roger Peroune quickly disposed of Budhdave Singh but had a tough match against Trevon Miller who stepped up from the 15-17 years division into the adult group. After a 1/2 point each, Peroune was able to get the better of Miller with another 1/2 point.
The final saw Parkinson scoring first, however Peroune tied it up then lost another 1/2 point to Parkinson and eventually won despite an oversight on a score. Although not placing, young Kevin Fraser put up a good performance against the eventual winner, Shemar Francis in the Male 12-14 years Kumite.
Over 60 competitors in 13 Divisions, ranging from age 5 years and up battled for supremacy.
