January 2009 Kohaku Shiai

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.


  1. Patrick,
    What a great crop of kids. I was looking at the kids in my class today and I thought "Who are this little folks going to grow up to be?". You are helping give them a good start.

  2. Congrats to all the winners! I need to head down there and roll with those hellions-- i could use an ego adjustment :)

  3. Thanks, guys. It is hard at the beginning of the year to get used to a new crop, but as I get to know them they really grow on me...

    like mung beans
