The yoshukai Karate of Jacksonville, Oxford and Hueytown recently competed in the Tough Mudder event held in Woodstock, Ga. The event is a 12-mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test strength, stamina, metal grit and camaraderie.

To get the team members though mud, fire, ice-water, and 10,000 volts of electricity the team mates picked each other up when their spirits dipped. To get over 12-foot walls and through underground mud tunnels, teammates relied on each other for a boost and a push.

With innovative courses, and approximately 700,000 participants worldwide, more than $5 million has been raised for the Wounded Warrior Project.
