First Tournament

Bilal participated in his first mini karate tournament yesterday. It was basically just the kids who train at the elementary school, but for Bilal it was a big deal because he's never participated in a tournament. The students were divided into small groups of three or four, and they did their kata and sparred against them. The event was in the lunchroom, where the class is usually held, twice a week.

Getting ready to spar:

Everyone got a medal (or two). Bilal got second place and kata and third in kumite (sparring). He was so proud of his medals!
