I had the privilege of coaching at the FUJI jiujitsu tournament in Lansing, Michigan. Lightning Kicks did a phenomenal job.
I was filled with joy and pride watching the students compete with heart, honor, and sportsmanship. Again, one of our athletes was dominating a finals match when his opponent got injured. The Lightning Kicks students immediately stopped the match before the referee even had a chance to, checked on his opponent, and called for medical.
This is the second time in a short period of time that this has happened. I believe this captures the essence of what we are all about.
I would like to personally thank all the parents and students that took the time to come out and support Lightning Kicks.
If you live in Kalamazoo or Portage and have been thinking of learning jiujitsu (BJJ), please come visit us, we would love to introduce you to the gentle art.
Here are some photos from today's tournament.
