The DSSI competition team from the Shihan Cesar Fernandez school AKA the "Boys of South Florida" competed at the 5th Annual Space Coast Winter Tournament of Florida the last weekend of January, 07.

Shihan Cesar Fernandez taking 1st place in weapons division, Sensei Antonio Gomez taking 2nd place in weapons, and Sensei Gregorio Gomez taking 4th place in weapons are all all DSSI students winning at this tournament showing the pride of the DSSI Okinawa Kenpo Karate Kobudo system.

Also in Kata, Shihan Cesar Fernandez returns and takes 1st in Kata division for the 2nd time for the past 2 years.  Sensei Antonio Gomez takes 3rd in his division in Kata , and Sensei Gregorio Gomez takes 4th in his division.  For the grand champion Shihan Cesar Fernandez takes 2nd but, the crowd did not seem very happy with that as they thought he had won the Grand Championship for the second year in a row.

Congratulations to the Boys of South Florida that are representing DSSI.
