We would like them to be well-rounded individuals. We’ll keep participating future tournaments and try our best. I congratulate my students on their achievements so far,” Sonmez said. She further thanked the school’s principal Varol Gurler and general-manager Tufan Aydin for their support.

Noting that as Amity School they cherish students’ social and mental developments too alongside academic achievements, “Our karate team has accomplished great achievements so far under the leadership of sensei Sonmez. I wish them continued success,” Aydin remarked. The Amity team had earlier got a total of 34 medals in two US karate championships.
