This wasn't for a belt testing. It was an all morning tournament for metals.
Mica got 1st place in his presentation. He had to kick, punch, block, roll (front, back and combination), all while counting in Japanese for the judges.
He got 2nd place for the Samurai Square Push. I was actually more proud of him for this because I saw how hard he worked for it.
Before the Tournament
He had to push that kid out of the taped box using the techniques they've learned. One kid that was up against him was the same height, but ranked higher. Mica won, once, and lost twice. The next round he beat the kid twice, and lost once.
Their upper torso has to get pushed out of the taped square.
He won that second round. I think it must feel really great to get your hand held up for the judges. That means he won out of 3 matches.
Getting his metals.
