Florida Regional Champions

Kyoshi Woodard and his sons at one of the AAU State Championships. Both boys qualified and continued winning, but as the competition went on many competitors repeated the same forms both in weapons as well as forms competition as allowed in youth divisions due to limited knowledge. When told they could repeat the same forms, both boys replied the adult Black Belts must perform a different form each time, and they were Black Belts even though in the youth division. So knowing they could be eliminated each did a different weapon for each round, and a different form for each round. They were eventually defeated after several rounds by those using the same routine over and over. At the end of the competition competitors and coaches alike came to them and were amazed at their knowledge, and skill raving on their performances. This was much bigger than the medal, as it is still talked about today 5 years later.
