Ashley Butler wins Grand Champion in forms

American Martial Arts Academy (AMA) student Ashley Butler won the Grand Champion Trophy in forms at a tournament hosted by The Park Institute of Wisconsin Rapids. To qualify, Butler had to take a first in her division, and then compete with all the other first place winners in front of nine judges. She performed three times in order to make it to the semi-finals, and then once more against another competitor. Butler won with a vote from the majority of the nine judges.
