September 1st, 2008, 01:15 AM #1Taekwondo Weekend, A gold, a yellow and butt kicking
Bust weekend of sports for the kids just finished. Baeng was in for her latest tournie in the 11-12, 42kg to 46kg, Green and below group, Alex had his yellow belt exam and Mai (our Niece who lives with us) had her first tournament, I forget the weight but 15-17, open belt cat (At over 15 they no longer split the fighters by belt, just weight and age)
Pre fight warm up
Nice head kick, shame it was too high
That's more like it, 2 points please
Nice hard kick right in the middle. And that's a wrap at 10-6
Mai takes on a Black Belt in her fight!!!
It looks good, but it didn't score, no power. Mai lost 7-0 but her first tournie fight was against last years winner and a long time Black belt
Alex wrapping up his yellow belt exam, get the scores tomorrow.
Baeng won her third gold, and again, the other finalist didn't turn up. They're all frightened of the 10 year old ... though she's 11 this month
Next weekend Aug 6th Baeng has another tournie, however this is a Schools tournament so she will be fighting for her school rather than her Gym at this one.

Now Alex has his yellow belt he can fight in the 5-6 age group, but presently doesn't want to, no intention of forcing him to fight though, I've seen a number of kids in the Tournies where it is obvious that the kids didn't want to fight and then they face a kid who "really does" and it's very painful to watch.
He'll either grow into it from watching his sister win or he'll stick with his Tanks, I think his present career aim is to be a Tank driver

The "Alex wrapping up his yellow belt exam" one is my favourite (I did spell it right, didn't I, Chris? :-)) one!!

Congrats on the performance!

Mai's new boyfriend is a black belt, when he comes calling I'm really polite

Great pics Chris congrats, thanks for sharing. Always been a fan of martial arts.
Meanwhile Mai broke her thumb training yesterday. Doctor had to reset it before it was splinted.... apparently that hurt... a little.... there was some shouting
