Tae Kwon Do Tournament Results!!

I think I mentioned on here a couple weeks ago that we were competing in a TaeKwonDo tournament. Well, it was this past weekend, and I am absolutely amazed at how we did! We've been taking TKD class for almost 6 months now, so I honestly didn't think we'd do all that well. I was extremely nervous Saturday morning upon arrival, but after warming up a little in the corner, I settled down some. M and M were the first 2 to compete, because of their age. The older M took 3rd in her weapons division, and 1st in her empty-hand forms division! She was actually competing against higher belt levels in both of these divisions, and scored a 9.99 in empty-hand, which means a perfect form! The younger M won 1st in weapons, and while she didn't place in her empty-hand form division, she was also competing against children both older and at a much higher belt level than herself. I thought she did better than some of those who placed, but maybe I'm just biased-although out instructor said she should have placed too, so maybe not! E and I were both in the same weapons division, so that added an extra spice to the competition. I placed 1st and he took 2nd, with only .1 between our scores! Thankfully we were in separate divisions on empty-hand forms, and we each took second. 

I wasn't real concerned about sparring; I honestly only participated in this category because our instructor had encouraged us to. I mainly prepared for weapons and forms, so I was surprised when I took 1st place in sparring as well! E was up against a higher belt level who obviously spends a lot of time sparring, so he didn't place, but did very well especially for his first time out. Needless to say, we all had a great time, and were thrilled with the results!
