Navasota’s Kick Start Kids hosted this year’s state championship at Bryan High School last month, and out of the more than 600 who traveled across the state to compete, Master Ben Mendez says more than one in three of our local kids there came home winners.
Fredrick Stratton is State Weapons Champ, Nick Hernandez won this year’s Weapons Form Championship and was a Silver Traditional Medalist, Raven Dickerson won both Weapons Form and Traditional Form Championships, David Yorek took a Silver in Weapons Form and a Bronze for Point Sparring. Madison Randolph took home a Silver in Point Sparring, Richard Feldhans won a Silver in Traditional Forms and Lillian Mahan took a Bronze in Weapons Form.
Master Mendez also reports that fully half of the half-dozen students from across the Brazos Valley who just completed a two-tier program to earn their 1st Degree Black Belt are also from Navasota.
Navasota News adds its congratulations to our new Navasota Black Belts Nikolas Hernandez, David Yorek and Chloe Mittag.
