IHOF 2009 Knoxville, Tennessee - Grand Champions


             
Despite having about 80% first time entrants, the Karate 5
Association was able to perform quite well and took home
27 total trophies.  This success reflects directly on the
hard work that was done by our instructors. We were
able to pull off the IHOF Banquet and Tournament without a
single glitch.
