“It was very cool because I worked a lot of hours for it and there was a lot of people that helped me get to the point where I am,” said Chambers on his recent win. Chambers competed with the Ontario Karate Federation, although he also competes locally and with the Shintani National Team. Chambers also won a silver medal in Kata in November in a Delhi tournament.
