The 25th Annual World Fire Knife Championship is now over and what a weekend it was! Mauga Mu truly made a presence this year and not only were we successful as competitors, but our vendor booth was also a popular pick with new school gear, accessories, dresses and athletic wear by Shopkalenas.com.
Our school swept the Junior division yet again with Matagi taking first, his younger brother Mose taking second and Isa’ako taking third. Hunter Nery’s strong, warrior presence and persistent charismatic performance allows him, yet again, to walk away in top three of the intermediate division and places 3rd. Mikaele’s heartfelt, groundbreaking performance took second place this year with just a one point difference behind the first place winner as claimed by the awards committee. We are so proud of everyone who participated. The level of talent that steps on that stage is always impressive!
Bravo warriors! Bravo!
