Without the luxury of utilizing electric scoring, Team BBT, a competition-oriented team based in Cape Coral,
participated in an ‘old school” sparring tournament in nearby Estero on Saturday. This time, it was the USA Taekwondo Center Open Championships held at the Estero Recreation Center on Corkscrew Palms Boulevard.
Team BBT features State, National and International competitors, as well as a number of Olympic hopefuls.
As has been the case in virtually all prior tournaments, the team demonstrated their proficiency and dominance by leaving with an inordinate number of medals. The team earned six golds medals and one silver medal in forms, seven gold medals in board-breaking and five golds medals and two silver medals in sparring.
This was the very first time TEAM BBT competed in board breaking. Nevertheless, the team performed brilliantly.
Next up…Team BBT prepares for the Florida Truescore Cup State Qualifier Tournament in Miami Lakes on February 26.
