Our little bundle of joy competed in his first karate tournament today. He got 2nd place in both kata and kumite. I’m incredibly proud of his performance, but even more proud of his sportsmanship and encouragement to the other kids he was up against. Master Yu put on a great tournament with the Port City Battle. Everyone that participated received something that they could put an eye out with and so we’ll be naming the first scar after him.
Seriously tho — we had a great time and I don’t think we could have asked for a better place to start competing.
We joined our dojo back in February and from the first week, it felt like a family. I’d link off to their site, but I’ve got a general policy of making folks work if they want to stalk us. If you’re interested in joining then ping me and we’ll give you directions to the best little dojo in town.
