The titles she won were in Continuous Sparring and Clash Sparring. She came in second place in Point Sparring.
Tibbs competed in the 8- to 9-year-old Advanced Division against some of the best competition from around the world. She beat girls from the United States, Australia, and South Africa. She has won a total of three ISKA World Championships in the last two years.
Her next big competition will be in November, when she fights for Team USA at the World Championships in Niagara Falls, N.Y.
