Sports Karate members successfully return into the Australian Karate Federation (AKF) ring after a long spell with four young athletes competing in the National Titles held in Perth. Clinton de Bruijn, Ryan Munro, Will Markham and Tane Davies were selected to represent Queensland after winning high levels of competition during the QKA titles. The boys performed well with Clinton selected to fight in the Open Men’s Kumite team event.
SKA hosted yet another successful Gladiator Tournament where young and upcoming members competed against fellow club members and visiting clubs. Divided into groups of age and experience they played valuable skill related games earning points as they go resulting in each competitor receiving a medal based on the number of games won. This is an essential stepping stone preparing our young members for later competitions.
In a show of ultimate support, a brave group of senior club members tackled the Rio Tinto Ride to Conquer Cancer this year to raise money for one of our very own Black Belts, Jasmine Bartlett. Jasmine put up the toughest battle of her life this year coming out on top.
December saw us travel to Noosa to support those striving for their Black Belt as well as other Kyu graders who were put through their paces. To achieve black belt members must go through a long process of preparing themselves physically, mentally and emotionally. The enormous wealth of knowledgeable, talented and loyal members ensures all those who commit to a training process are given the guidance and support necessary to achieve their personal goals.
