Transcript During the exhibition part of the tournament, a black belt jumped over five people and chopped two consecutive boards. All photos generously donated by Master Kim. As a treat after the tournament, participants par- tied with free food and drinks, including Master Kim Soo's wife. All participants, from beginners to black belts take their Cha Yon Ru exercises together before the beginning of the tournament. Master Kim personally congratulates winners of the sparring and form competition. Just Sparring Around The 1987 Cha Yon Ryu Festival was successful in many ways. The number of schools and contestants, the smooth operation on the floor and at various desks, and audience size bear witness to this success. Over 350 contestants entered in the festival forms, " sparring, and special events. From age 6 to 59, they came from every Cha Yon Ru school, including the UH PE class. Several states were represented, as well as the Republic of Mexico. The audience was partisan to the several schools. Perhaps more amused with the participants in the tiny tots division. These six and seven-year olds — fully padded from head to toe — did their best to maintain form and get as many strikes in while still defending themselves. Of the three categories of events, the sparring held the most attention from the audience. Every move in this event was spontaneous and, therefore, unpredictable. Sparring points were given only to controlled punches, that is, no actual contact should be made with your opponent. In other words, anyone trying to These six and seven year olds — fully padded from head to toe — did their best to maintain form." injure "Danial San" would immediately be disqualified. Even after the winner of the sparring round had been declared by the four judges at each corner, sportsmanship was maintained by having the opponents bow and hug each other. Excitement ran high and injuries were few. The form competition simply involved going through a pre- rehearsed pattern of hand and feet movement. Each belt had a certain set of patterns from which to choose; which ranged from simple H-patterns to three minute black belt forms. Towards the end of the tournament, the audience was captivated by the special events, which included board and brick breaking. Showing the artistic side of karate, many participants used special effects such as blindfold and jumping over a number of people. The hard-earned awards were presented by Master Kim Soo himself, and then participants went to socialize and relax at the party held after the tournament. — Sandhya Sanghani 146 University of Houston Sports 147
