Congratulations!   15 year old Harry Derrickson (Green Belt) of the Westbank First Nation & Westbank Taekwondo will be heading to Winnipeg this summer to compete  in the Indigenous North/American Games as a member of Team B.C.  He came home from Ladysmith pretty darn excited.~ Instructor Mr. Michael Smith

Follow Up ~ Our student at the North American Indigenous Games, Harry Derrickson, won silver in poomsae and bronze in sparring.  I have no idea how tough it was, but Harry said the fellow he sparred against was in his 30's.  It certainly was a memorable event for a 16 year old blue stripe.  He said it was "Awesome".   ~ Instructor Mr. Michael Smith
