Now for some shiai pictures:
Hasso (of Deadbooks fame) and Brownie (he's Jamaican).
Getting ready to spar. And spar they did, for 40 minutes!
Ray (go to his website for a photo collage of the entire shiai) and Tristan.
Harry (he was going for purple) and JR.
Here's a funny put together by my dear friend, Kitt (she got her brown belt at the last shiai).
You'll notice that both Sensei Bottomms (on the left) and Master Morallo (on the right) have their eyes closed while Ray is performing his kata.
It was an amazing shiai, full of energy and great form. Master Morallo was impressed.
On a final note, I don't know how many of you have seen this video, but it's priceless:
