Hastings National Karate goes to The Diamonds!

The 30th annual Diamond Nationals World Karate Championships were held in St. Paul, MN on October 12-13th. To those of you not familiar with Diamond Nationals, it is a world tournament open to all karate schools and is considered to be the premier karate tournament in the nation.

The Hastings students ranging in ages from five years to sixty+ competed against the nation's best in areas of traditional form, sparring, and weapons. The Hastings National Karate School has consistently had one of the highest number of student participation rates in this tournament with their students earning an extraordinary amount of the top awards as well. As you can see from the picture above, they are carrying on that strong tradition.

Congratulations to all the students, parents, and instructors for participating and putting on some incredible performances throughout the day. All your hard work and efforts deserve a big round of applause.
