Little ninja

Yesterday was our dojo's tournament, the third that Bilal has participated in. The older siblings went along, to help judge, since they are both black belts. It was a small tournament, with only four students in most of the divisions, but still a lot of fun to watch. How better to spend a Saturday morning? This is the place where the kids grew up, having trained for many years, and Safa actually calls it her second home.

First, Bilal competed in kata.

Here is the video. Thankfully I managed to take it just before my phone ran out of memory!

Next, Bilal sparred against another student of the same rank. This is where my phone completely ran out of memory. But after deleting some apps, I was able to take a few more photos.

Bilal got silver medal in both events, and big brother had the chance to present them.

It was great to have all three back in the dojo together, even if it was just for an event. Hamza hasn't been training because of school, but he plans to start back over the summer. and Safa will be teaching the 4 and 5 year old cubs while she is out of school. Bilal, of course, plans to keep it up too!
