Sensei Jazmin and her junior class.

Shihan Rene and Advanced Kata class.

A great start to the year for Sports Karate Australia and all our students.  Classes started back in the first week of the school term with much excitement.  All our classes are continuing to see a great flow of new students both young and not so young wishing to join in the fun and fitness.

Competition season is quickly upon us with the year starting out with the QKA State Championships due mid-March.  Our largest group of students have registered to compete this year, most for the first time.  Of course our support team of Sports Karate Black Belts as Coaches, Judges, and table officials will be in full force as well, with update and training seminars already attended.  Without the volunteers these tournaments don’t run. Good luck to all who have entered as your hard work will definitely show.

We all enjoyed the year’s first Gladiator Kids and Beginners Level Tournament held at Hilliard’s State School the beginning of March.  This was a fantastic introduction into tournaments with great levels of participation from all of the clubs’ many class groups plus our Elite Team. This helped to take the edge of knowing what happens at the larger tournaments.

With classes running seven days a week throughout the Redlands and Bayside, catering to all ages and fitness levels, there has never been a better time to inquire about joining.
