My oldest (7) has been in Tae Kwon Do since late October. He is an orange belt, currently working on getting his green belt. They kept telling us how good he was and such... yet, there was a tournament today that we didn't know about! And it's not that it was for upper belts, because a boy that is yellow belt was there (yellow is below orange). I saw pictures from it.
Now this upsets me.. is my son not good enough for tournaments that they couldn't even tell us about it? We didn't miss any classes last week, so it's not like they couldn't tell us about it at all.
What would you do? Would you say something at the next class, or would you just forget about it? My son LOVES tae kwon do.. his goal is to get the highest degree black belt. He talks about wanting to win trophies. When he finds out that "other boy" got 2 trophies, he's going to be crushed that he didn't get to go.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?? :(

When my son was in Tae Kwon Do, they had tournament all the time, however, the tournaments where only open to the Demo group. Anybody could apply to the demo group by audition- no matter if they were yellow, orange, etc belt. Could this be the case? I would ask the owner about the tournament and let him know that your son would be interested in participating in the next one.
