SKZ’s Shaolin Heart and Soul In-House Tournament
SAN Jose Shaolin Temple Cultural Center || SKZ In-House Tournament 2020
On January 26, 2020, we held our SKZ In-House tournament. Our total number of competitors had reached over 50 students with over 130 forms and a general count of about 200 people at the tournament.
Every student left home with at least one medal and we had passed out a total of 4 Grand Champion trophies to the highest performing students of each division starting from Intermediate level and higher.
Our competitors were able to fully immerse themselves in the competition. They were all able to push themselves to new levels. Through cheering for each other and helping one another, they were able to build up friendships and a sense of community.
Most competitors were able to go home with satisfied expressions on their faces. Some may have been disappointed with their results but it is a very important part of their growth.
More is learned from a loss than from a win. This is why even if some students may not have won first place or any trophies, they’ll still have obtained more experience and knowledge than if they had won.
What’s important now is how they will use this knowledge and experience from now on. Be it in a competition or afterwards, our students are now cultivating their Shaolin Spirits!
