Congrats to the sparring tournament team on last week’s sparring extravaganza! Pictured are six of the nine students who participated. Look at all that bling! It takes a lot of guts to get out there in the ring, so excellent work. Thanks also to TMA – Pine Lake and TMA – Overlake for putting on a great event!
Check out the September 20th issue of the Stanwood-Camano News to see this photo of our forms tournament team with their trophies! It’s on page A8 in the “Family & Friends” section, or here on the Stanwood-Camano News webpage.
Great job to all of our students who participated in the double elimination sparring tournament at TMA Overlake on Saturday!
I saw some great fighting techniques and strategies out there, and was impressed with the mental strength and sportsmanship of all of our fighters.
We had 2/6 students come away with medals–but like one of the black belt judges said, the true medal is inside. The act of training to participate has propelled you to new heights of skill, and knowing you participated and did your best is satisfying, no matter the outcome.
