Well, Kathryn came to the girl's house and kicked the door in. Kathryn bested her in the Tradiional Forms by 1 point. They tied in weapons. When that happens, you both do the tradiional weapons form and then do your own freestyle form. Kathryn had a very solid performance. Then when it came time for her freestyle, she forgot it and winged it. Her smile to the judges was precious! Kathryn took 2nd in weapons
Then came sparring. Her first match drew a competitor that was 2 1/2 maybe 3 times her size. Look at the photos! Kathryn did not hesitate. Kathryn went at her and matched her point to point. At one point the girl was getting angry that this little kid did not roll over or run. Kathryn had a back fist that was within regulation but knocked the wind out of her. Kathryn took 3rd place in sparring.
As I write this, she has yet to compete in Extreme Martial Arts Forms and maybe combat sparring. Yes, one gutsy kid indeed.
And then I have my sights set on driving west as far as caffeine will carry me. We will most likely stay at a Walmart so we can keep the Pod connected and drive at first light.
