Karate students representing El Dorado Springs Karate Club travelled and competed at Karate Events this past weekend. These competitors represented not just themselves and their Club but also their community. We are so very proud of them. Their continued dedication and hard work is delivering great rewards in the way of tournament awards, but more important is that they are showing great and positive growth in their personal lives because of it. These students live our Club Moto: Working to be Better today than we were the day before.
