Congratulations to everyone who competed at yesterday’s Sunshine Coast Tournament (Sunday, 18th March 2018). Although competitor numbers were a bit down the standard of competition was very high and there has also been big improvements in the standard of refereeing, especially in the junior referee. The ongoing improvements are a reflection of the hard work that is going on in the respective QLD Chito-Ryu dojos: Sunshine Coast Karate & Gold Coast Karate and Kobudo Centre.
Here are the results:
A special mention to our tournament champions, who were the top performers in individual kata and individual kumite.
- Junior Tournament Champion – Patrick Edwards (Sunshine Coast)
- Senior Tournament Champion – Samantha Lenton (Gold Coast)
As always, tournaments are not possible without the efforts of a lot of volunteers. Thank you to referees, table officials, event marshalls, canteen & BBQ helpers, and everyone who helped with the setup and pack up.
Of course, also thank you to the parents of our junior competitors for your continued support.
The next tournament will be: Sun 20th May (Sydney).
The next QLD tournament will be: Sun 24th June (Gold Coast).
