David Light, Kyle Light and David Collier, who train at Two Rivers Shotokan Karate in Glenwood Springs, all competed at the recent International Shotokan Karate Federation national tournament in Denver.

David Light, founder of the Two Rivers dojo, made the finals, winning a bronze medal in senior men’s kumite (sparring).

Kyle Light did not make the finals, but performed well enough to earn attention from his peers.

“Some members of the ISKF technical committee even took note of Kyle’s progress,” said David Light, Kyle’s dad. “It was a very strong showing for him and his best national competition to date.”

Collier also performed well.

“He faced some very tough competitors in the first round of kata and kumite,” David Light said. “He has shown good potential and the Mountain States Team coaches want him to train with the team for future development.”
