My little boy went to a tournament today and was in the first 3 doing his weapons kata. He received pretty good scores, and then they gave each of the 3 a second set of scores. My little one got a zero...I was flaberghaste How could one of the judges judge someone with a zero after judging him the first time with an 8? What does that mean, is there a logical reason for this?

politics, they are big in the children's sports. i raised two boys that played in all kinds of sports. around here it was who you were, who you were kin to etc. it's sad to see your children get mistreated like that.it always made me very mad when i thought anyone was mistreating my kids.

I suppose that you are right...I was just hoping that there might be another reason. I was happy that Kurt came home with 3 trophies, just felt as though he deserved better than 3rd doing his weapons kata...oh well, live and learn! Thanks for your response!

Thanks for checkin in doll! I am hoping for some answers too. WHen Kurt when to his sensei last night, he said that he hadn't heard of this kind of judging. He said that he was going to call the sensei that was in charge of the tournament and find out what it was all about. That eased Kurt's mind a little bit, but he was still a little dejected....hopefully, we can get some kind of resolve on this! THanks and have a great day! OH, I am on my way to Missouri this morning for 6 days...so I won't be on Mylot for a while ;( Hugs!
