The 5th Annual Mililani Judo Invitational took place today at Mililani High School from 9am to 5pm. The competition was stiff as multiple schools from around the island competed for the title in Judo. In the pictures below, Kapolei defeated Pearl City, by a score of 70 - 30. While some held their hands up in victory today, there were truly no losers.
The Judo community comes together like no other. The support that swept through the atmosphere was amazing to witness. Nearly every Judo player that competed had a smile of their face. Though the competition was tough, everyone performed as true sportsman. A higher standard of athletics was certainly on display.
Both Boys and Girls divisions competed at the invitational. Including schools such as Mililani, Kapolei, Pearl City, Leilehua, Punahou, Moanalua, Roosevelt, and Kamehameha.
Fantastic Judo was the theme of the day, but the overtone was definitely superior sportsmanship. Respect to all who came out to compete, as well as support. As we all know, the driving force behind the Martial Arts in Hawaii, is the support system that is offered from friends and family.
