USJF Nationals the Favorite Event of the Summer

Dear Tono Sensei,

We would like to thank you for the beautiful plaque we received last week for my son Eric Oshima who was awarded the Sportsmanship award for the first day’s competition.  Eric was thrilled that you took the time and effort to have his name engraved on the plaque, which made it even more special.

Of the three nationals we attended this summer, the JF’s were certainly our favorite, for many reasons; the most important being the feeling of community in all aspects of the tournament.

We thank you and your many volunteers for a very memorable and enjoyable tournament.
We know what a sacrifice of time and effort it takes to put on such a well-run tournament and I believe all of the participants appreciated the effort.

thank you again, and hope to see you in California next summer.
best regards,

The Oshima Family
