Two Filipinos bagged bronze medals in the recently concluded 37th Annual International Shotokan Karate Federation (ISKF) national championships and International Goodwill Tournament held in San Francisco, California USA.

Siblings Marimar Fontillas, 19, and Bryan Fontillas, 18, were part of the 16-man Philippine delegation that competed against players from the United States, Mexico and Canada.

The two arrived on Monday aboard Eva Air.

The ISKF is a traditional Shotokan Karate organization founded by Teruyuki Okazaki, who studied directly under Master Gichin Funakoshi, the founder of Shotokan Karate. BENJIE L. VERGARA

  1. If they are Filipinos, then they probably just competed for the goodwill games. Getting bronze in a competition with just 3 competitors is not an accomplishment. Whoever sent these kids here are wasting their money. That or the kids just wanted to have fun by going abroad.
