Two Terrace martial artists earned solid victories at the recent Western Canadian Martial Arts Championships in Vancouver.

At age 19, Adrian Babcock seized the title as Grand National Champion in point fighting — a title which places him as the top of all the adult point fighters from all the different weight divisions at the tournament, which drew approximately 300 martial artists from across B.C. and Alberta.

He battled through 15 nearly back-to-back fights in different categories over the course of the one-day tournament, which was a bit disorganized this year.

Nick Yasinchuk competed as well, capturing two gold medals in the youth division of point fighting and continuous.

Both Babcock and Yasinchuk have been at Terrace Shogundojo for the last number of years and have been in martial arts since early childhood.
