2009 IJF World Kata Self-Funded Teams

My name is Heiko Rommelmann, Jr. I have worked very hard for many years to see my study of Judo and Judo Kata come to this point. Myself, my kata partner Jeff Giunta and five of our students have been selected as part of the team to represent the US at the 2009 IJF World Kata Championship in Valletta, Malta. This selection came due to the results of the 2009 US Senior Nationals.

To financially afford travel, acommadations and other expenses to such a high level tournament is a huge struggle and is at times overwelming. In the past it has been a struggle for Jeff and myself, but now with so many members of the US team coming from our club it is a very difficult task.

To off set our financial situation we are selling t-shirts to help us raise funds. Please find it in your heart to help us in our endeavor.

As always we hope to make you all nothing less than proud!
