This past weekend was the Liberty bell Judo tournament. There were many elite athletes present and it was very intersting to watch. It is a great warm up for the Nationals for the East Coast fighters. I decided not to fight this year to preserve my body. Plus, the idea of taking a back seat from the competitive mindset and being a spectator as a pure fan seemed appealing to me. At the tournament, I scurried from mat to mat to either observe a match up that intrigued me or to cheer for a fellow comrad. I was involved in so many of the fights throughout the day, that there wasn't a dull moment. I was constantly stimulated and it was a very eventful day. I have to go to work for now, so I'm cutting this post short. Thanks for reading, I will write you guys soon.
