Spilyay: Hello Mr. Hiatt. YouH
please many people when you
return to our community this
Spring. We'll start out interview
by asking your age and have
you tell a little of your family
Hiatt: I'm pleased to be return

seeing my students here. I'm 36
years old, married to Susan
Hiatt who is a second degree
black belt. We have a four year
old son, West who is a blue belt.
Our whole family does Karate.

Hiatt: What I see that pleases
me most is the confidence gained
by my students. There were
some students who couldn't look
me in the eye when they joined.
But after being in Karate awhile
their confidence had improved
tremendously. On the physical
side you'll gain coordination,
well-being, flexibility, recreation
and self-defense. It's a complete
sport. My students have men
tioned that Karate made a notice
able improvement in the other
sports they were involved in.
Karate affects you throughout
your daily life.
Spilyay: It sounds as though
you know your business very
well. Tell a little of your studios
in Bend and LaPine.
Hiatt: This is the biggest and
best Karate school I've ever had
and it's the most progressive in
the state. I had a good-sized
school in Roseburg, Oregon where
I taught for 1 2 years. M y schools
just seem to get bigger and
better. There isn't a Karate tour
nament my students and I attend
that we don't fail to bring back
trophies. My school in LaPine
just got a kicking bag and will
be adding a speed bag in the
future. My school in Bend has a
kicking bag, speed bag, sauna
and our most recent addition
have been a juice machine and a
Karate video game.
Spilyay: You mentioned teach
ing in Roseburg for 12 years, is
that where you were instructed?
How long have you been in
Hiatt: My instructor is Sensei
Bergeron from Louisiana which
is where I was taught. I've been
in Karate for 1 6 years and teach
ing 14 of those years.
Spilyay: How many students
do you have and what are their
Hiatt: Over the years IVe
taught thousands of students.
Right now I have approximately
70 students in Bend, thirty in
Oregon Travelers win Chemawa tourney
The Oregon Travelers won
the Chemawa Basketball tourna
ment for the second year in row
edging out Hoopa, California
in a close 89-88, final score.
According to Coach Big Rat,
the game was a repeat of one
year ago, a close tough game
right down to the final buzzer.
The game went basket for basket
during the first half, and it
wasn't until the third quarter
when the Travelers started to
get their game plan working.
Hoopa was no push over by no
LaPine and thirty in my Warm
Springs class. Their belt ranks
vary from white to black. Out
of the twenty-seven black belts
I've given, five are fifth degree
Spilyay: Can you give us some
information on the belt rank
Hiatt: Ranking by color differs
from style to style, but it usually
goes white, yellow, orange, green,
brown and black. Different de
grees, or dans, in black belts are
usually ranked up to 10 dans.
My style has five degrees. I'm a
third degree black belt in my
style. Of the styles that have ten
degrees, most are honorary de
grees. If I went by that system, I
would probably be ranked fourth
Spilyay: What is your style of
Hiatt: I teach Hawaiian Karate.
It's a style that evolved from my
learning of Tae Kwon Do, Sho
Tokan, Wyn Nop Kwon Do
and various other styles. I've
taken the best from each style
and developed some techniques
of my own that have worked
very well. My students regularly
win trophies and some have
been ranked in Karate Illustrated.
S pilyay: We're proud to have
you as an instructor for our
people in Warm Springs. What
are your other interests?
Hiatt: Weapons, Amis,
(Phillipine stick fighting) Skiing,
tennis, you name it and I've
probably tried it.
Spilyay: You keep yourself
very busy. Is there anything
you'd like to add?
Hiatt: I'm looking forward to
seeing my old students here and
hope to meet many newcomers.
Our youngest student is four
years old and has already won
five trophies. We have many
students just beginning that are
fifty years of age and older w ho

Just like the POP song of
today, "When the going gets
tough, the tough get going,"
was the way to describe the
game between the Buff girls
when they met the Vale Viking
girls here last Saturday night
and came out the winners 50-4 1 .
The Buffs girls applied a tough
defense against Vale which proved
to be a key factor of their win.
In the first half the basket for
the Buff girls seemed to have a
lid on it as they couldn't get
anything to fall and ended up
trailing at the half time intermis
sion 22-20. But they came out
strong in the second half to out

impressive as that of last year
when they went undefeated and
rated No. 1 , in the state, but, all
in all, they won the league title.
They clinched the title on their
last road trip to Mac Hi, easily
means and kept the pressure on
the Travelers regardless of how
far behind they were. By the
fourth quarter the Travelers built
a 15 point lead but saw that
diminish in no time at all and
with 2 minutes and 39 seconds,
left they were right with the
Travelers matching point for
point, but then the Travelers
settled down and started working
the ball into the big men Kip
Archambault and Kevin Little
George. It was by some fine
outside shooting by Vic Sohappy
that took the pressure off the
big guys on the inside. Jamie
Henry made some fine moves
penetrating on drives and also
making a lot assists and scoring.
The team got a lot of help from
the bench relieving the regulars
and doing their share of hustle.
Some fine play came from Chas
Mitchell, Toot Pennington, Rich
Wells, and Dean Sohappy.
