I went to a karate tournament on Saturday. I sparred and did two katas (forms). Above is my bo kata (giant stick). I did very well and I got one medal for it. I've only been working with my bo for two months!
This is my open hand kata, called Pinan Shodan. I've been working on it since I was an orange belt (I'm a green belt now -- that's the level above orange belt). I got a fourth place trophy for it. I feel like I did a very good job.
In sparring, I won one match and lost one match in sudden death (4-5). I got a medal for that, too.
