On January 26, 2020, we held our SKZ In-House tournament. Our total number of competitors had reached roughly 50 students with a total of 150 forms. 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. 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, How people threw themselves into it. How people pushed themselves. How they prepared. Built a sense of community and encouraged one another. Built an internal shaolin spirit.
