On Saturday August 12th, 2017, numerous competitors gathered in Albany, NY to compete at the Northeast Open Tournament. The Northeast Open is the largest martial arts competition in the area that attracts competitors from all over the northeast, and from all different martial art styles. Each year, our U.S. Budokai Competition team participates at this event. This year’s results are as follows:
On top of a day filled with competition, every year the NEO awards a scholarship to an individual competitor. There is an application process that includes a letter of recommendation from the competitor’s instructor. This year, due to her outstanding work ethic, warrior spirit, and ceaseless dedication to the martial arts, the recipient of that scholarship was our very own Advanced Brown Belt Haley Miller! Haley received a $1,000 scholarship check from NEO that her family can put towards her continued training and competition.
Congratulations Haley and all of team Budokai! We are so proud of you!!
