The Philippines bagged the overall Champion title in the recently concluded 37th Karate-do Goju-kai International Championships held in Singapore last September 9 at the Singapore Badminton Hall. With the participation of more than 150 athletes from 13 Karate Schools/Clubs, the Philippines brought Twenty-Six(26) athletes from the Association for the Advancement of Karatedo Philippines (AAK Philippines), and garnered a total of 36 medals.

“It was a great honor for the Philippines to have gotten these medals. We are proud of the young athletes that we have trained in AAK and we are hoping to create more.” said Shihan Pocholo Veguillas, founder of AAK Philippines. “Truly, we saw the key principles in karate in practice in our athletes as we watched them out there doing their best.” he added.

“I’m very proud of how our young athletes performed during the competition. I was a witness of how they trained and I was very pleased to see them in action in Singapore. With karatedo having been included as an official sport in the Olympics, we wish to raise more awareness on the sport and develop good athletes with the values that this sport instills” said Richard Lim, Head Coach of the AAK Philippine Team.
