Team Douvris at Cobra International


If you think the last freak winter slush storm of the season can stop us from competing, you don’t know Team Douvris very well. On Saturday we drove through muck to get ourselves to Repentigny, just east of Montreal, to compete at the Cobra International tournament organized by Sunfuki karate.

This was the last tournament before the WKC provincial qualifiers in London, ON and our competitors showed everyone how ready they are to make the cut at Provincials and earn the chance to compete for a spot on Team Canada. As well, everyone – competitors, coaches and family members – showed fantastic team spirit, encouraging and cheering each other on, coaching the newer competitors, and generally being very loud and enthusiastic in their support. It was a great day, as you can see from our results, below.
