Purple belt and black belt master/seniors go today (Jason, Johnny)
It was a rough day for the boys: Johnny lost his first match by points, "I made a mistake. I assumed I got points the referee didn't award. I relaxed for a second and he scored." The lesson of the day is: never assume, never relax. Jason also lost his first match, by advantage. Watching the proceedings online today, I gathered from the commentators that the level of competition, especially in the masters and senior categories, was very high this year. Almost 2800 competitors took to the mats.
THIS JUST IN: Jason entered the Purple Belt Open Weight division and in his first match beat the guy who won his medium-heavy weight category. He finished 3rd, after making it all the way to the gold medal round, where he lost a referee's decision. It's not over until it is over.
