presence made at governor’s cup

image

another competition group picture worth sharing. after claiming our bling at governor’s cup in washington last week, master shin greeted us to congratulate our success and invited us to pan-am next month. we certainly turned some heads and opened some eyes while we were there and that’s what we really need. in my opinion and of my own interest, it is important for us to put our names and faces out there beyond the province of british columbia. if we want to grow as a school, as a team and as an individual, we must get to know the people out there and make them notice us. washington was a good start; we have lots on our plate, next up oregon.

featuring the red and black adidas swag at vancouver airport really got us the attention we weren’t expecting. the day has come and we are toronto bound to compete at nationals after training and practicing all these months. this is the time when we wished we started much earlier and trained harder to better prepares ourselves instead of procrastinating. group photo just as we are about to enter the gates for 2014 nationals. none of us are ready, some of us are injured but just got to go there and do whatever we can cause there’s no turning back

day 172 – breaking them in

debut my new jcalicu uniform because all my other uniforms were in the wash. this is my new precious one and i will use this carefully and sparingly over next few months to keep it in mint condition for big events and special occasions. lots of practice and training needed to go in order to live up to expectations because wearing this on my back should be a privilege
