  1. Continue progress says:

    Great effort.. Surprised I didn’t see Mr. Wilkinson and his team of martial artists there. They are great role models and ambassadors for their sport!

  2. Varied says:

    Looks like the kids had a good time, hope the event was successful in generating interest in these organisations and activities.

    Will this become an annual or bi-annual event going forward?

  3. I heart 441 says:

    It turned out to be a great event for kids to be exposed to various sports. I can’t think of a way to enhance it further.

  4. Garon Wilkinson says:

    Bermuda Sanshou Association was indeed invited and we were looking forward to taking part in this great initiative. However our competition in Mexico that was initially scheduled for December was rescheduled to the same weekend and unfortunately we just did not have the resources available to do both. We do hope the invitation is extended to us once again. It looked like a great time.
