  • Congrats to Marti Malloy - Dollamur Athlete, for Gold in Miami

     

    U.S. Olympic Bronze Medalist Marti Malloy got exactly what she wanted: “a win on home soil,” a gold medal victory at the first super-elite international Grand Prix ever held in the United States.

    "When I heard there was going to be a Grand Prix on home soil, I wanted gold,” said Malloy of San Jose, CA, on the way to the podium to collect her medal. “This is all I've thought about. I wanted a win on home soil. I've been training very hard for this tournament for the last few months. I wanted to hear the National Anthem, and I wanted U.S. supporters to hear it on home soil. It was great to be on the mat and to hear everyone cheer to USA. It is amazing to feel that support, and I am very proud."

     

    This would be the only medal for the United States today, the first day of competition among more than 40 nations that converged on Miami for a shot at top competition, the valuable international ranking points and a purse worth $100,000. In fact, no nation won more than one gold medal, and Hungary came in first among nations having won only two silver medals and no bronze. For complete results and brackets, go to IPPON.ORG.

     

    Malloy, who trains at the USA Judo National Training Site, San Jose State Judo Club in San Jose, CA, made history last summer when she took a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympic Games alongside Kayla Harrison, who took the nation’s first Olympic gold medal in judo. The momentum has continued on the world stage with the United States climbing the podium at a number of high-profile tournaments around the world, and Malloy added to that momentum this afternoon in Miami.

    10 THINGS KIDS LEARN FROM STUDYING MARTIAL ARTS

    Martial arts article from Nannyjobs.com

    Martial arts mats being used

    To parents that have little experience with the world of martial arts, the entire sport can seem violent and dangerous for kids. Upon closer inspection, however, many find that their kids will reap an innumerable amount of benefits from participation in a martial arts training program. In addition to busting sedentary habits and getting kids in shape, martial arts instruction also helps kids learn these ten valuable lessons.

    1. Determination and Dedication – In order to ascend through the ranks and earn new belts, kids that study the martial arts must exhibit dedication and determination. Learning to set and achieve new goals through hard work and dedication is one of the most valuable skills that a child can take away from martial arts training.
    2. To Manage Disappointment in Healthy Ways – No matter how dedicated he is or how hard your child tries, there’s a good chance that he’ll be disappointed by a failure to advance or a mistake that he makes during training. Rather than shielding your child from these feelings, you can use the opportunity as a valuable teaching experience, helping him learn to manage that disappointment in healthy ways.
