Australian National 2016

Australian National 2016

Congratulations to all participants of the 2016 IKO national tournament. The day was a big success and well represented across all divisions including kids kata.

Brisbane dojo had one of its best days in its 30 year history. We had students in all categories and from little Libby Hopkins right through to Mark Stone in super heavy weight, we had our most successful day yet.

Well done to the first timers, what a great way to improve your dojo sparring.

To those in the kata division, it doesn't get more nerve racking than having to perform your kata in front of 4 of the highest ranks in the country.

It was all about experience and collecting medals and we certainly took home lots of both.

Congratulations to Luke, David V, sempai Callum, Carla ( the super woman), Kai, Kao, Mark Abel, Ujjeshi ( who fought in adult division), Steve V and Danny.

To our juniors with Tejas and Ciara who fought for their 2nd and 1st time.

A great day for Kyokushin Brisbane
