Overcoming Adversity

We talked about overcoming fears recently. Some of the students participated in a tournament this past weekend and demonstrated incredible spirit and showed us all what they are made up of on the inside. They showed us perserence and the will to win and not give up even when facing defeat. Miles Harris fought a bigger opponent. Both of these kids did a great job and showed skill and respect for each other. I want you to see how Miles pushed himself despite the size difference. In most combat sports there are weight classes. But, in Karate sometimes we have have to group by age and because of the number of participants, we put smaller with bigger, so that they get an opportunity to compete. But even through sport, one learns to deal with adversity.
