So this is my trophy from my first and only shotokan karate meet. This trophy was for the sparring event and the other event being kata (demonstration of kicks and punches in a sort of dancing form). Granted that I have never sparred in a tournament, this one was nerve-wracking for me to attend. But, I did come out with a second-place win so that I am very proud of. I do wish I knew where the information plate that came off is.
