We are so proud of these kids, not because they performed well but, because of the way they carried themselves and behaved. We witnessed several displays of great sportsmanship! We saw teammates encouraging each other, cheering each other on, high 5’s and shaking their opponents and their opponents coach’s hand (win or lose) and we saw tears being held back until off the mats.
In class last Friday, we had a “mat chat” about what we expected from the kids: “do your best, be a good sport and most importantly…HAVE FUN!!” (oh, I almost forgot… don’t poke anyone in the eye;) ) We couldn’t be more proud of them!
FYI….The kids brought home 6 Gold medals, 4 Silver & 6 Bronze, they also took GOLD overall as a team for One Jiu Jitsu!
