10th Kyokushin US Open ~ My results

That time came and went again. The US Open championships the Kyokushin Karate. What a great tournament it turned out to be.

This year Maine Kyokushin Karate decided to have a little ninjas division. I was recruited to judge the Kata and fights for these little guys. Let me tell you there is nothing cuter than a 4 year old doing Kata. Then they fought. There rules were a bit different than mine. They wore chest protectors and were only allowed to hit and kick the protectors. First time I think I saw fighter smile while they were getting hit, so adorable.

Warrior Challenge ~ A Simple Deck Of Cards

For today's warrior challenge, Dawson had a doozie for us. He said I would hate him for it, and for a few minutes i did.

Get yourself a deck of cards.

Face cards are worth 10
Aces are worth 12

Hearts = Medicine ball slams
Clubs = Push-Ups
Spades = Squats
Diamonds = BURPEES!!!

Go through the whole deck, yeah the WHOLE deck. barf

I swear, Dawson stacked the deck with diamonds. About 10 cards in, I think we drew 4 diamonds. A face card, the ace, another face card and a 6. In my head I yelled "F#@$ You DAWSON!!", in reality, he could only make out the swear becasue I couldn't breath. I needed some water after that.

Kids Class Game: Snake Horse

I got to teach the kids class last week and they were so much fun. I was hoping for 10 kids to com, but I think I had close to 20. Oh My!! At  least I know them all, it makes it easier. I went in with a plan, but with my plan being for 10, the plan went out the window. One of the games I had in mind worked out very well. The kids loved it and when they saw me yesterday, three asked if we could play it again.
