Mr. Marin, school owner giving a last minute pep-talk to the students.
Our school was very well represented with about 40 students competing from age 5- 60 (ish)! We had students competing in obstacle course (4-6 yrs), team patterns, individual patterns and sparring.
All the team pattern competitors
Paige and I with our GOLD medals!
I competed in team patterns with Paige and Jason (my partners in crime from a post earlier this week). Mr. Marin, our head instructor on Saturday afternoon told Paige and I how he would really like to have a team in the tournament. So Paige and I got our acts together, planned things out, called Jason told him he was doing it and that we'd meet up in the morning before the tournament to run it through a few times. Man, did we KILL it!!! We came in 1st place!
Sadly I didn't do so well in individual patterns. It was going very well, until the last 4 moves in Sam-il and I froze! I forgot the last 4 moves! Argh! So I returned to jumbi, bowed to the judges and that was that. I ended up with a bronze medal.
