Grand Phoenix Open 10.0
The Grand Phoenix Open 10.0 was well worth experiencing on August 24th, 2019, hosted by Arizona Pride Taekwondo. This was the first one Spirit has participated in but the venue was very hospitable and well cared for! We brought a small group of six competitors to this competition and left with 4 gold medals, 2 silver medals, and 2 bronze medals. The Spirit Team saw a special performance from Miss Sophia while facing a familiar opponent- the number two rank in the country and All-American Athlete. These girls faced off for the fourth time and Sophia came out on top! A comeback was made in the last round and it finished as amazing fight for Sophia, working on new concepts Spirit Taekwondo is developing. Because of the 10.0 status, Sophia won 100 points and is now bumped up to Rank #4 in the official Tusah Rankings for the country! Additionally, our young color belts Jared Sy and Jeremiah Williams represented Nevada’s poomsae well this weekend, taking home gold medals in their respective divisions! Our next event is Jimmy Kim Invitational... Hope to see you all there!!
