Competition Philosophy 
All coaches know that you cannot achieve competition success on your own. Success is attained from a combination of effort from parents, the athletes and coaches. A good coach serves as a catalyst to bring all of these different elements together and hopefully through hard work, determination, support and encouragement play a part in producing students who are capable of winning medals in both Kata and Kumite.
