TaeKwonDo National Championship
Friday, July 06, 2007
We finally got home this afternoon, I'm very tired. It was a fantastic week and I had a lot of fun, but I'm glad to be home!
I was a little disappointed when my Master Instructor scratched me out of the Fighting Competition. At most tournaments forms are done first, then fighting. But for some strange reason they had fighting first this year. My instructor didn't want me to risk hurting my foot any more than it already is, so she pulled me out of fighting. It was a bummer too, because we watched my division and figured I probably would have won it. But I was the smallest one in the "heavyweight" division and probably would have been hurt.
The good news....I actually won the Gold in the forms competition. So in hind site, it's great that she pulled me out of the fighting. Had I fought I know I would have hurt my foot for sure. If my foot was worse I'm sure my form wouldn't have been as good. Soooo......she definitely knew what she was doing when she pulled me out of there. Now I'm the National Champion in my division!
