Today was our monthly Kohaku shiai (in-club tournament) in which we draw together all the kids from all the different classes into one big competitor pool. Today we had 13 competitors with 5-6 students out with various bugs. We ran 4 events, clothespins, roostertail, steptoe, and newaza randori. We'd planned a fifth event, tachi randori, but ran short on time - with so many competitors we ran 46 matches. The winners at this month's shiai were...
- 1st place - Jacob Allen (10 wins)
- 2nd place - Ethan Schwing (9 wins)
- 3rd place - Tanner Humphreys (8 wins)
Everybody did great and now we have a better idea about the things to work on harder next month.
