Today we celebrate a first in our family, a 1st place finish for athletic accomplishment!
Darling Daughter wins a Gold Medal in Judo from the Gospel Martial Arts Union, its Spring Tournament.
The win isn't really about pinning others to the mat Thursday night, it really is a victory in:
- Deciding to pursue the discipline of martial arts (or shall we say "submitting to parents' authority when being taken to marital arts?")
- Once at martial arts, "finding her own place" in the judo style
- Desiring to learn the style
- Desiring to compete at the end of year tournament
- Listening to a coach
- Winning = overcoming
