Shima Dojo USA Karate Team Fund

Shima Dojo Karate school located at YMCA of Marco Island, FL and one of the hardest hit by hurricane Irma, needs your help.

We have 2 karate students who made junior black belt last year ages 11 and 13.  This was their first year in  competing in the black belt division.  They both finished in the top 1 and  2 postitions in the state of Florida and both finished in the top 1 and 2 in the United stated scoring gold and silver medals at the AAU USA National Karate tournament.

Now they have been invited to join the AAU USA National Karate team and compete internationally in Honolulu, US November 15-19.

We need your help.  Shima Dojo has to send their sensei and 2 students to this event, which has an estimated cost of $12.000.

This is our first year in the black belt division and our students made it to the USA National Karate Team!  Please make this dream for us come true.
