A Karate Kid From Springs

Jack Petscheitis, a 13-year-old karate student at Epic Martial Arts in Sag Harbor who will start eighth grade at the Springs School next week, returns to school after an impressive win this summer.

Competing in the boys intermediate level in kata, or forms, for his age group with the National Sport Karate League, Jack came in first in the United States Capital Classics in Washington, D.C., on Aug. 4.

He is coached by Senseis Michelle Del Giorno and Caio DaSilva. His parents are Laura and David Petscheitis.
