Congratulations to Kaito Streets for m becoming the 2017 Japan National Champion 🏆 this Sunday in Tokyo. Kaito fenced amazingly against many very strong opponents and scored a splendid stop cut on the championship point (2nd pic). He was passed on a 70 years old Trophy that he has to add a ribbon to and return for next year’s championship. As a professional fencer, it is a milestone in his career that he couldn’t have reached without the amazing support he has from his friends and family.
