In April we had several students competing, most for the first time, at international competitions.
Australasian Schools Championships
Well done to Elena Hails, Josh Simpson and Heath Dibden for competing in kata and kumite. Congratulations to Luke Hails for silver in the -70kg cadet kumite.
Australian Open Championships
Well done to Josh Simpson for competing in kumite, getting better every event.
Huge congratulations to our medallists:
Sensei Peter Sbirakos, silver 45+ kata
Sempai James Walker, bronze -84kg U21 kumite
Sempai Luke Hails, silver -70kg cadet kumite
Eagle eyes would have spotted Sensei Tony Hails coaching Ishinryu students and Team Fiji, and Sensei Alison Peachey refereering on tatami 1. A huge, and satisfying, 4 days of competition.
