Kodokan Kickboxers get SAVAGE

Kodokan Kickboxers got down and dirty at the Savage Race, a mud run in Dade City.  Nine women from the ages of 20 - 40 went through a 6 mile course with 25 obstacles and had the time of their lives.  They overcame fears, left their comfort zone and did things they never thought possible while playing in the mud. Congratulations Team Kodokan!!!
