imageLast day of the vacation and today was tournament day. This was Mr. Smith’s first tournament of this caliber.

Competitors came from Australia, Brazil, Korea, Sweden, Europe and all over the U.S. Over 6,000 people showed up to Little Rock, Arkansas to honor the martial art of Songahm Taekwondo.

imageMr. Smith won a bronze medal for Traditional Weapons and a silver medal for Combat Weapons Sparrring. He did amazing! Best part, this was his first tournament and there was a steep learning curve with how things work. Next tournament will be Panama City next month.

Tomorrow we head home and as fun as this trip was, we will be glad to get home.
