Such a proud day on Saturday when JHKA took part in Forza’s Premier League Competition (2 of 3). We took home an impressive;

6 GOLD πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡
3 SILVERπŸ₯ˆπŸ₯ˆπŸ₯ˆ
10 BRONZEπŸ₯‰πŸ₯‰πŸ₯‰πŸ₯‰πŸ₯‰πŸ₯‰πŸ₯‰πŸ₯‰πŸ₯‰πŸ₯‰

This was a massive improvement from our first event in February this year! πŸ†

I’d like to say a massive well done to everyone! For many JHKA students, this is your first or second competition and each and everyone of you stepped onto the mat and performed amazingly. I could see lots of nerves around the hall but you all overcome them and did your best. 😊 Those that did not take home a medal, without a doubt have taken home some knowledge and experience to work on for next time. I see lots of my students reach further in the round stages this time and this was a huge indicator of how much we are progressing. Confidence and courage has been amongst you all. I am an extremely proud Sensei πŸ₯‹πŸ˜€
