On May 19, 2018 some members of the USKL dojo participated in the Claremont/La Verne Relay for Life organized by Paul and Jennifer Alverez (former senior USKL students).   We were part of Team Sultana/Walking Warriors and we gave a karate demonstration for the participants at the Relay.  We captivated the audience while demonstrating basics, progressives, kata, kumite waza, and sparring.  At the end of the demonstration we led a lap around the event track area to the tune of “Kung Fu Fighting” to send cancer the message that we plan to kick its butt. USKL demonstration participants included: Senseis Ty, Lynn Aponte (cancer survivor), James Augur, and Leo Shortle, and Laura St. Martin, Devin Voiles, Ivan La Rache and Ian Li. Sensei Christie Villa Kramer carried the baton around the track, cheer-led and took pictures.
