Kootenay Jiujitsu had a good showing at the Western Canadian championships in Penticton last week.

Tzohi McDonald won gold in no gi and  silver in gi.

Tajudin McDonald won silver in no gi and Sejah McDonald won silver in gi.

Hazel McDonald won a bronze in girls gi, and Nelson’s Kootenay Jiujitsu instructor Brent McDonald won gold in masters, and bronze in masters open weight category.

The Kootenay Jiujitsu team brought back first place in the team no gi division and third in the gi division.

The kids took third in team no gi and gi.

This is a small club up against some very skilled teams from Western Canada and organizers are all proud of the work the team has done.

To win the team trophies against teams with many more students is a great accomplishment for the local club.

They want to thank all those who helped and supported the athletes in training for this event. They would not be Western Canadian champions without that support.
