56th annual mose woodson judo tournament
may 4, 2013 denton, texas
it has been over a month since christian's last judo tournament, and he did not disappoint!!! he came home with a 2nd place trophy!!! he could have came home with a 1st place trophy, but he got a bad call called on him by the referee. that’s ok though. we just go back home and work a little bit harder to make sure that doesn't happen again. christian did a great job! after a long delay at the tournament, christian came out of his first match firing away!!! he grabbed his opponent and threw him right away, but unfortunately the kid some how turned his body on top of christian and it looked like he threw christian, so the referee give the other kid the point! what! o'well, that's the way it goes sometimes. the next match was even better. he grabbed his opponent and threw him and pinned him for 20 seconds. ippon! no doubts on that one! his next match was for 2nd and 3rd, because he already lost one match. he won his next match with another solid throw, but unfortunately the other kid grabbed christian’s leg and was disqualified. (new rules) way to go little buddy! now it's time for the junior olympics!!!!
