Last Saturday Lakes Martial Arts enjoyed our largest participation in a regional tournament! There were lots of smiles, medals, and signed belts from Grandmaster M.K. Lee. Students that participated in the tournament also were able to check off one of the nine requirements towards a black belt!
Special thanks to the parents for sharing their photos (Alice's Mom and Jayden's Dad especially).
There was lots of TOUGH competition - a state champs, district champs, and higher-ranked competitors. I was proud of the black belt attitude demonstrated by the Lakes Martial Arts students! And perhaps next year we will participate in more events including weapons sparring and creative forms!
Mr. Kern enjoyed his tournament competition ring as well... a combined ring of many various ages and experiences of 4th and 5th degrees!
