Mr. Page Gunderson IV Dan broke sets of 4 and 3 concrete slabs with consecutive palm strikes.
Mr. Willie Cederburg IV Dan reminded everyone that he still holds the record: 6 concrete slabs broken with a palm strike.

Mr. Willie Cederburg IV Dan again reminded everyone of his record: 6 concrete slabs broken with a palm strike.

Mr. Michael Call II Dan was presented with a Katana sword after triumphing in the Staff sparring competition.
Mr Jim Kreinbrink IV Dan was presented with a Katana sword after triumphing in the Sword sparring competition.
Mr. Jim Kreinbrink IV Dan gained special recognition for breaking the most foam covered swords (and one staff) during the weapons sparring. It wasn’t necessarily positive recognition. Much stronger replacement Foam Covered Swords and Foam Covered Staffs will be sent promptly from myKarateStore.com, which offers premium quality merchandise that EVEN HE cannot break easily.

Also attending the camp were Grand Master Joseph E. Petty, VIII Dan, Master Brian Kaumo VI Dan, Master David Barbero V Dan, Robert Kreinbrink I Dan, Carol Petty, Richard Call, and Brian Durfey.
