This was the first competition for some, and some of the student competed against others twice their age and size in Forms, Weapons and Free-fighting.
Among the eight students, they returned with 19 trophies, many for first place.
Olden's classes are held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Tower Barracks Field House, beginning Sept. 2. Children between the ages of 8-18 may attend.
