***Latest News out of Australia***

Not only did Devon get the honor of carrying the American Flag in during Opening Ceremonies, he also got to hold it on the podium...twice. That's right -

DEVON IS A WORLD CHAMPION!!

Bringing home Gold in Kata and Bronze in Kumite (Sparring), he did amazing!! Not only that, but he was also selected to be Team USA’s Goodwill Ambassador and fight with the New Zealand team during Team Kumite. They lost an athlete & would have otherwise had to forfeit. He slid in, fought hard, and won his match for their country! We are so proud!!

Now, on to Nationals to represent the team again!! Thank you all for your continued support!!
