Sunshine Coast Challenge Tournament Results & QLD Circuit Rankings

The results and season rankings are now available after yesterdays Sunshine Coast Challenge Tournament (Sun, 18 Mar 2012 at Pacific Paradise State School).  Thank to all competitors, volunteers and supporters for making the event such a success.

With the extra “challenge events” of sharpest punch and best side kick it was great to see a big step up in the standard of basics. Although it did add a bit of extra time to day, it was worth it.

A special congratulations to all of the first time competitors, especially those taking the step into the kumite events for the first time.  Looking at the rising standard of competition, I think we are going to have a very strong team at this year’s national titles in Sydney later in the year.

Anyway, onto the part that everyone wants to know about – the results and rankings.

Next tournament for members will be the Gold Coast Challenge Tournament to be held Sunday 15 April 2012.  Adam Sensei has created 2 new events for this tournament, “Most Push Ups” and “8 Block Combination” in addition to the normal events – kata, kumite, kumite tag, team kata and bunkai.  Entry forms are now available for download or  from the dojo.

Here are a few photos from yesterdays tournament.  If anyone has more photos or videos to share, please be sure to drop by our Facebook Page.
