Chase almost didn't sign up for this tournament. He was really afraid, but he finally did it anyway. I couldn't be more proud of him for stepping outside his comfort zone. It has really pushed him further and he had so much fun! He competed in forms (3rd place in his group)...
...and board breaking (2nd place in his group):
They grouped kids by ability level and I was proud to see Chase was the lowest belt in his forms group. I told him he should be proud to even be placed with those kids, but he still wasn't thrilled about that third place!
Overall, though, he had an awesome time and was on cloud nine when we left:
I tried to take credit for one of those medals, but he wasn't feeling it!
