We had a great day at the Chessington Interclub yesterday. The morning started off a little bit slow, I think because it was the first competition back after the summer break, but by the end of the day we were doing fantastic. As always we had a great crowd and vibe amongst the team.
We took 19 fighters and came back with 7 Golds, 7 Silvers and 6 Bronzes!! A few people had major breakthroughs yesterday, its great to see so many people improving. We also had a few people having to step up from novice to intermediate, and they went out there and gave it their all, some of them even placing!
Remember, the greatest reward of tournaments and martial arts in general isn't in the trophies. Sometimes your greatest fights are ones you lose. If you didn't get the result you wanted yesterday, get back to training, work on the things you need to improve and be better for next time.
The next Chessington Interclub will be in February, watch the calendar for more details.
This weekend we have the Bristol Open, watch this space to see how the team get on!!
