Physical Therapist Arleen Thomas competed in the USA World Karate Nationals

Physical Therapist Arleen Thomas competed in the USA World Karate Nationals sponsored by USA National Karate Do Federation. In her 40’s, she locked horns with the 18 to 35 year old age group. The tournament took place at Cesar’s Palace in Las Vegas on Easter weekend. She lost gold in kumite due to penalty. Delivered too many head shots to opponent! Was angry because opponent delivered her an illegal knee kick that caused her to limp for 3 days. EMT checked on her opponent, who was thought to have a broken nose but ended up with shiner! Above is a picture of Arleen and her son Kai with the silver medal she won!

Arleen’s Son Kai Competes In His First Tournament And Arleen Takes First Place!

Kai did his blackbelt Kata, and Arleen took 1st place in weapons. In the grand finale, Arleen made 2nd place, missing it by a point! Not bad for someone who hasn’t competed since 1997!

Arleen’s old instructor remembered her as did several other sensie’s there. Funny thing, they mentioned that her weapons kata was “old school” in other words very traditional and they wanted to know who her current sensei was. Even her current sensei didn’t know she would be competing-she decided to compete the day prior to the event and did a great job! She is one hardworking and deicated mother!!
