Frobisher, Saskatchewan is celebrating the success of one of its young athletes, Kale Marsdin, who recently won a gold medal in American-style kickboxing at the DMA Winter National Tournament in Calgary, Alberta.
Marsdin, who trains at Genki Martial Arts, was one of three athletes from the club to win a medal at the tournament.
"The tournament had three sports in it," explained Marsdin "Muay Thai K1 kickboxing, Olympic-style kickboxing, and karate." Keanno Mendoza won silver and Slade Erdman won a bronze in kickboxing as well.
Marsdin was inspired to join the sport because of his father Sensai Robert Blowatt; an instructor of American-style kickboxing at Genki Martial Arts and a black belt in Shotokan karate.
Marsdin and Blowatt were on the Rock 106 morning show to discuss martial arts in southeast Saskatchewan and their experience at the tournament.
