Smash Kids represent at Makimoto Judo Club Invitational Tournament

Smash Kids represented at the 2013 Makimoto Judo Club Judo Invitational Tournament weekend! This competition was sponsored by the Vacaville Police Activites League (PAL).

This was Derek Jen’s second competition and he had an incredible performance.  He won every one of his matches in under 5 seconds and took 1st place.

Aaron Jen was in a division that was a mix of his belt level and higher.  He had a huge bracket and had 6 matches.  Aaron won all his matches and took 1st place.

Louie Noble Jr. competed in his first judo competition. Louie was going against some experienced competitors and ended up taking 3rd place!  Awesome work!

Here are the highlights with all three boys….
