At Keiko Shin Karate Academy’s most recent competition, the AAU National Karate Championship in North Carolina last month, there was a slight imbalance in the numbers.
The academy left with more medals than it had competitors.
The academy, located at 3753 Bruce B. Downs Blvd., in Wesley Chapel, sent 20 athletes to the event, and brought home 34 medals, including 22 gold. That success gave them the top spot in the tournament in terms of titles, a dominant finish in each of their categories, and an additional haul that added to their existing collection of more than 150 medals. Their athletes ranged in ages from 6 to 40 and faced competition from all over the world, including Canada, Israel and Romania.
