PMA team competes at the Floyd Burk Tournament

Competitors lining up for start of competition

The PMA team participated in the 34th annual Floyd Burk Invitational tournament on Nov. 7th and took about two dozen trophy awards. This is a small but outstanding tournament for attitudes, respect and competition. PMA was part of the show and along with our twenty parent supporters.

Special thanks to Becky Black Sensei who coached and managed the team, and to David Chell (injured) but who served the tournament by scorekeeping over four hours without a break! Ms. Sedlacek also refereed for many hours. Master Devine was singled out as the honored guest and was presented with a ceremonial sword by Master Burk.
