I have not been to martial arts tournament since about 1985 or so... I love tournaments, competitions, showcases, demo's, signings, meet an greets, I love going, I love participating, being a spectator, a fan, a worker, the main attraction. There is such an energy in the air, I feel for the participants, I love the tension, the concentration, the preparation, everybody is getting into their 'zone.'

Win or loose it's about the journey!
