Palo Alto 2015



In the heart of Stanford territory…


On November 15, 2015, two of our Bears went to compete in Palo Alto. It was a large tournament, and our competitors did not fight until mid-afternoon. When they did get to compete, they fought hard.


Nadine Öttl fought for best-out-of-three matches and won two consecutive matches, earning first place quickly.


Cassandra Tang competed with two upper ranks: a green belt and an orange belt. She lost her first match to two wazaris. She lost her second match to one wazari, but fought until time ran out.


The final tally:

Nadine: 1st

Cassandra: 3rd


Special mention to Chishiro, one of our black belts who was a referee at this tournament.
