The 2016 Cupertino Judo Invitational was a blast. The tournament was well run and all of our competitors had a great time. A notable mention goes out to Jasmine for her stellar performance in what was her very first Judo tournament. As for the others it may not have been their first time but the performances were nothing less than admirable. As always there was a fantastic display of sportsmanship, before, during, and after every match. Most importantly we note the courage it takes for these students to show up and compete without letting fear override their actions. This is a life skill that carries with them way outside of the sport of Judo.
