MY FIRST SUCCESS IN THE KARATE INTER- CLUB DISTRICT TOURNAMENT
27th January 2019: It was my debut at a district tournament. I was a little nervous. Many students from different Seigo – Kai Karate Institutions in the state had participated in this competition. I was pitted in one of the 40 sets of 4 students. My first fight was against Ayan Ghosh of the 5th Kyu from Barrackpore. The match was of 1 minute 15 seconds. I was defeated by 2 points. But I won the eliminator round against Spandan Shaw of the 4th Kyu, same as mine, from my own club. He wa quite good but I was able to defeat him by 1 point. I must say that it was a tricky match. How fast were his kicks! But I brought him down with a sweep. The fight was a memorable one which lasted for 46 seconds. I bagged a bronze medal, which was a great accomplishment. It became even more prestigious when I was given the medal by the Seigo- Kai- Karate – Do Secretary, Mr. Kaushik Dhar. This was an experience that I would cherish for life.
