Team Douvris at the Ontario Provincial Open
Team Douvris travelled to Burlington last weekend to compete in the 41st Ontario Provincial Open Martial Arts Championships. We had a strong contingent of junior underbelt competitors, including kids who are just beginning to compete and who performed very well under pressure.
We were also privileged to watch the Para Martial Arts championships on Saturday morning, and were inspired by the display of talent and courage from the competitors.
