Great chess competition on Upper West Side!

Today was the first tournament ever at the karate studio UWS Kenshikai on Upper West Side. Chess is loved by the martial artists and many of the kids practice both, so it was a great opportunity to all of the chess kids who come to the UWS Kenshikai Dojo to do karate to compete on the 64 squares this time. We had 18 kids in two different sections, the youngest players were 5 years old! Everybody had a great time and took a nice trophy award home. More tournaments are coming soon!
