Update to: A Good Class Tonight…

The tournament went well, about 75 kids showed up (that’s about normal for a developmental event).

No one got hurt, and every one had fun! Sensei Fred and Andy refed a few matches, and I coached. We did good!!! Galen (his first ever event), won 3rd… He even managed to take his 2nd match to “Golden Score” (it’s what we call Sudden Death – aka a 2nd full 2min match incase of a tie score, first point wins.), Matt won 2nd… and … Paul, and Dylan both got FIRST PLACE! For both it was there very first ‘1st’ finish at an event. Weeee! And ‘big’ Paul (one of our adults) got first (won both matches by Ippon – Full Pint, perfect throw!)

In all it was a well-run, nice event as always from Liberty Bell Judo. All proceeds from this event went to benefit the 2009 Maccabean Judo Team, who will be traveling to Israel to fight in the 2009 Maccabean Games.
