FROM: J. E. HUGHES, 8th Degree Black Belt

It is hard to believe but another year has started and preparations are already under way for our 25th annual benefit tournament. Each year we work to make the event run smoothly and charge reasonable fees for competitors and spectators, so everyone may attend.

I hope you and your students will be able to attend to help us raise funds for the American Diabetes Foundation and the high school sports program. Diabetes and obesity are growing in this country because of the eating and exercise habits of our population. Because of some more recent media presentations, people are becoming aware of the problem and strides are being made with research technologies. Hopefully a cure will be found in the not too distant future.

We will continue to be a NO CONTACT tournament for all competitors. This includes all students from white belt to black belt. The philosophy that is stressed is that CONTROL should be able to be demonstrated by all competitors. Students must wear protective hands, feet, headgear, mouth guards and groin protection in addition for the men.
