And the Winner of the Boys’ Sparring Division, Ages 13-17, Green and Green Brown Is…

Tournament Time!

Saturday was our martial art schools tournament. Arctic Boy won first place in his sparring division. It was a lot of fun, the judges were having fun doing their job and it carried over to the competitors. They have these tournaments every 6 months, but this was our first one in about 2 years, due mainly to being in China.

Practicing forms before the competition.

The tall one in the red helmet is Arctic Boy.

 

Off to a slow start...

 

"Come on, you have to actually get close enough to hit each other."

 

Okay! First point!

 

Next match... A double whammy.

 

Watch out for the fake-out kick - it might be real.

 

Ding Ding Ding! Winning point!

 

Final match for first place - Won with "monkey climbs the tree". Maybe they should change that to gorilla?

 

It's so fun to hold those trophies.

winner-winner, chicken dinner 🙂
