Local students earn medals at Karate Nationals

    The Beardstown Shudo Kan Karate Club took three students to the Karate Nationals held in Chicago the weekend of July 12th and all three received medals in their divisions.
    It’s an impressive feat, especially considering there were over 2,000 competitors and the Beardstown school is less than 3 years old. Attending the Karate Nationals were Dakota Bolen, Ann Boehl, Jordan Schlueter and Sensei Ernie Bolen.
