Students from The Rocky Mountain Karate Academy attended the 2012 Colorado State Championships on Saturday in Eagle. Pictured, from left, are Isabell Feldman, Colton Oleski, Henry Cardillo, Ross Van Hara, Sensei Michael David Bauk, Jackson Creagan, Finn Russell, Ben Russell and Chas Feldman. Bauk took 10 students to the championships, with nearly all competitors bringing home trophies in one of two disciplines. Competitors either competed in kata, prearranged movements and forms, or in sparring. Steamboat Springs students competed against others of similar rank and age, but those competitors had years of experience competing in multiple tournaments. Most of the Steamboat students never had been to a competition of this caliber.
