Challenge of Champions Photo Contest Winners

by Keith Gehshan

Tiger Schulmann’s launched its first ever Challenge of Champions Facebook Photo Contest, which ran from 09/27/14 to 10/02/14.  The official TSMMA Facebook page hosted the contest with a built-in voting system that determined the winners.  We asked contestants to enter their favorite picture of themselves competing.  The Challenge of Champions contest required participants’ photos to capture the spirit of competition, and we also asked that they include a brief description on how competing in the Challenge of Champions has impacted their life.  The 6 contestants with the most votes received free registration for 1 event to compete in December’s Challenge of Champions.  With over 50 entries and totals reaching 2000 votes, Tiger Schulmann’s was proud to award these 6 contestants as the winners of the contest. 

Tiger Schulmann’s would like to thank everyone who participated in the photo contest, making this Facebook Photo Contest a huge success.  More exciting contests and promotions will be taking place on our Facebook page, so be sure to visit regularly to stay up-to-date.

Below are the 6 Winners in the Challenge of Champions Facebook Photo Contest!  Congratulations!

This was Natalia’s first COC.  She was nervous at first, but ended up doing a great job.  She has been training hard for December. I’m so proud of her!

“I Got This Mom…”

The look a son gives his mother after he takes first place–I was very proud.

This champion has been to many COCs and left without a trophy, but his non-quitting spirit makes him a champion.

Going For It!

We all know how connected every child is with their parent.  No matter how many times we tell them not to look at us while competing, they just can’t help it!  Nicky looking up at me, mouth guard only half in, right before he spun around to get the back, created a great picture of how my little man “focuses” while competing.

All In The Family

This is my son and I at our first COC together.  As a single mom, I cannot express how grateful I am that TSMMA has given us the opportunity to bond and share such an empowering experience.

Challenge of Champions lets me show every one what Sensei has taught me. 1) Take the bully down, 2) get a position, 3) hold the position and 4) tell the bully to get lost.
