Kicking It in Montreal at the KJS Tournament

KJS Tournament

Saturday found us in Brossard, just outside of Montreal, to take part in the KJS Tournament. We were pleased to have a lot of newer and younger competitors, for whom this was the first big out-of-town tournament. We can forget sometimes how intimidating a big event like that can be when you’re seven years old and inexperienced. But we are pleased to say all our competitors made us proud showing off their skills, whether they earned a medal or not. Our results are below.
