The kids competed in the National Martial Arts Alliance's 2018 Colorado Winter Classic tournament this morning - they each had FOUR events: form, weapon form, sparring, and weapon sparring.
They did great and came home with three medals each! So proud of all their hard work and dedication...!
Sean's working Form 3 (he's a camo-green belt)
Sean's weapons form - we're particularly proud of their weapons forms, which they invented themselves and practiced for weeks

Sean weapon sparring (similar to foam lightsaber battles)
Claire rocking Form 5 (she's a low brown belt)
