#DreamTeamOkinawa at 2015 US Open Karate Championship and Junior International Cup in Las Vegas.

When we hear word Las Vegas we think of casinos, posh, shopping, spectacular shows and nightlife but for #DreamTeamOkinawa Las Vegas is totally different. For the fourth year in a row students and coaches from Denver karate school travel to Vegas over Easter weekend to fight on the rings of Paris hotel and casino at the prestigious international championship US Open and JR Intl Cup 2015. Over 2000 athletes of all ages from 33 countries  from around the World traveled to fabulous Las Vegas to test their skills against each other.

Our team has been represented by 16 athletes, 5 coaches and many family members and friends. Everyone on the team demonstrated strong character, will to win and spectacular performance over 3 days of competition. We enjoyed so much overall experience of this great event, made new friends and met with the top karate competitors of the World.

Thank you all for your support and awesome energy!
