2011 Alaska State Championships Update


Ah Nyoung Ha Seh Yo! (Hello!)

This past weekend we held the 2011 Alaska State Championship.  It was the most smoothly run State tournament in some time.   Special recognition is deserved for a great event:

To the athletes –

An amazing display of sportsmanship was displayed at this year’s State Championships.  As always, the State Championship is a highly emotional experience.  All athletes wanted to win and some unfortunately came short.   For those that achieved the title of STATE CHAMPION – congratulations!  To those that did not – continue to work hard and eventually you may be a State Champion. 

To the referees -

The referees performed to the best of their ability and deserve a special thank you.  Being a referee is a selfless act and they are rarely appreciated for their hard work.

To the coaches –

Thank you for supporting your team.  Each athlete is so very thankful to you for helping them to achieve their goals.

To the parents, family, and spectators –

Last, but definitely not least, a HUGE thank you for the awesome signs and cheering and help keeping the athletes focused and motivated.

Check the calendar for upcoming tournaments and sparring events and set your sights on San Jose!
