Two Tracy’s Karate Teams Win State Championships

ELLSWORTH — More than 200 competitors from Maine and Canada vied for trophies at the recent Maine Team Karate Championships hosted by Tracy’s Karate-Ju-Jitsu of Ellsworth.

Teams of five members — men, women and children on each team — competed at Brown Belt and lower levels with a separate division for Black Belts. At least six wins were required to be crowned grand champions.

The event also included “kumite” individual sparring events featuring winners from previous tournaments competing for grand championships.

Earlier in the day, students of the year were recognized from the eight dojos in Tracy’s Institute of Self-Defense, and awards also were presented for best attitude, most improved, most dedicated and most supportive parents.
