Jennifer Malloy Karate Tournament – 2/22/09

Today was the annual Jennifer Malloy Karate Tournament.

This event is always a good tournament since many competitors show up from all over the country.  This year, the tournament hosted the US team trials for kumite.   Many of the best kumite athletes in the country were present and competing today.  Since I was a judge for our own competitors, I did not get to see much of the trials but I heard that it was excellent.

My wife, son and I also entered the kata and kihon competitions in our respective age and skill groups.  My son and I didn’t win but received a lot of experience.  My wife ended up taking home Second place in both kata and kihon this time.

It was a good tournament overall.
