At my karate club people call me Sensei, and my friends just call me Richard.

Junior high school tournament 中学校空手道大会

Two boys from my junior high school club competed in the Tokyo Junior High School Tournament on Sunday. It was the qualifier for both the summer Kanto regionals and JKF Junior High Nationals. While they didn't make it past the first round, basically because they are 1st years up against 3rd years who are a head taller (see picture above), they had a good experience and tried their best.

日曜日、我が中学校空手道部の1年男子2人が関東大会と全国大会の予選会に参加しました。1回戦で負けたのは残念でしたけど、相手は3年生でけっこう背が高かったので(写真参照)2人ともよくがんばって、いい経験になったと思います。

When they are 3rd years, it'll be their turn to take home the medals...
2人が3年生になった時、メダルを持って帰るのは彼らです。。。

This is not a video of one of the club members, but I thought this performance of Unsu was quite good for a junior high school student.
このビデオの生徒は我が部の生徒ではありませんが、中学生としてはウンスの形が上手だと思います。
