第三屆香港公開劍道新秀賽

本年三月,於鯉魚門體育館舉行第三屆香港公開劍道新秀賽,敝館的一些新晉學員也有參賽。儘管別館也有初段學員參加,敝館的學員也用他們的熱誠及幹勁奮勇作賽,贏得驚人的成積。

 小童組別中,敝館的右田陽及清田兩人皆獲敢鬥賞。

右田陽表現出他的決心及堅忍;清田在他第一次的比賽中,同樣表現極好。

半準決賽前,岸川進以兩記出色的「面」打敗對手,在小童組別贏得第三名。

敝館的梁佩芝及曾慧懿參賽女子組別比賽。這是曾慧懿第一次比賽,雖然不湊巧地她與一名初段的強勁對手對上,但她絕對從中贏取很好的經驗。

遺憾地她被高個子的對手打敗,這名對手是本次比賽的亞軍。

敝館的梁志賢,鄒浩德及盧裕輝出賽男子組別,他們全是第一次參加比賽。他們用頑強的志氣及決心,克服了緊張感並順利作戰。

最後,盧裕輝在男子組別人獲得第三名。

很神奇,是吧?

恭喜各位,感謝各位展示出你們的奮勇的精神及決心。

以下是參賽學員的感想。

第三屆香港公開劍道新秀賽後感     (梁佩芝) 

 劍協每年也舉辦不少比賽,本人有幸能參與其中。

 比賽有如進入了戰爭時代一樣,勝出等於能夠繼續存活。能夠存活的人,他們擁有的特質是什麼?就是意志。最終我命喪黃泉,檢討自身,意志的確是我的弱點。

 本身個子矮小的我,只能用移動次數,來彌補想要移動的距離。換言之,對手如果用一步,我便要快速走兩步,體力消耗一定會比對手快。戰鬥途中,曾經因為這個原因,有過想等待對手攻擊,給自己一點時間休息的意念出現。結果是連輸兩個「面」,直墮地府。

 長時間作戰要求的,已經不只限於技巧,更要求「前進」的鬥志。只有不斷「向前」走,才能踏上榮光之路。

 我一直以來,也有個想要設法達到的目標,就是「不退」。今年沒有出過界,對我來說已經達成了「不退」這個目標,令我感到欣慰。可是,今年的死令我醒悟到:

 單單的「不退」,無法能令人存活下來。

想要生存,必須要「前進」。
