Thousands of young judoka all over the world worry about competing in their first Judo tournament. Often they have to compete with negative thoughts as the competition draws closer. Thoughts such as:

"What if I lose in ten seconds?"

"What if I embarrass myself?"

"What if the other kids are better than me?"

These negative thoughts and emotions can prevent a young child from competing in Judo all together. In this story, Judo Olympian Matt D'Aquino helps young judoka not only understand the pressures of competition but gives them strategies and encouragement on how they can overcome them, on and off the mat. This book is a great tool for parents and coaches to help their little Judoka compete in their first Judo tournament.
