Awards and Achievements

I have not won very many things in my life.  I never won at the science fair in grade school, I didn’t ever get a gold on the Canada Fitness test.  I did win High Jump in grade 8 for our school, but that leads into a whole different story.

Recently I have won two completely different types of awards.  A few years ago our Karate Club held a Tournament where I ended up winning a 1st place for Kata and a 3rd place for weapons forms.  I was very proud are I believe rightfully so.  I put in a lot of effort practiced a lot and on the day I pulled off couple of really good forms.  I think that is one of the highlights of my martial arts career so far, it was a really great day of competition and the fact that I won something is truly something to be proud of.

Over the weekend I got a different type of award.  Each year our hockey league has a banquet and gives out a couple of league wide awards and then individual team awards for the most improved player.  Typically this has been for the increase of the level of play on the ice, a progression in skill.  This year my team mates voted the most improved player to be me!  I am proud, but I am also amazingly humbled.  It’s a completely different feeling to be given an award based on the votes of your peers.

I really am thankful for the award and proud that my fellow teammates deemed me worthy of it.

Thanks Guys!
