NWKA Club Kumite Competition

Kumite Comp 2017 Area

A Special event at the New Church Parish Hall Karate Club (est 1984).
Congratulations to all who took part, the fighting competition was a great success with 65 entries and over 110 Spectators.

As a coach I kept looking at the fights and thinking back to when all the students first started and how they have all grown in confidence and skill.

It was also the 30th anniversary of the first competition I ever organised and that too was at the New Church Parish Hall.
A big thank you to all the referees and helpers who did a great job.

I’m already looking forward to next year.

NWKA Club Kata Competition

The academy hosted yet another successfully ran Kata Competition.

Thank you to the adult senior grade club members who judged and other adult members and parents who came down to help with the
organisation and setting up of the tournament.

Well done to all the children for getting up and performing two Katas each to the best of their ability in front of hundreds of people. Not only did the
children do well on the day, they also showed their commitment in the classes leading up to the tournament. Friends and family gave their full
support by watching and applauding their efforts which is also greatly appreciated.

Well done to all who performed in the display after the competition was over. The display included a demonstration of techniques and disciplines
that comprise our syllabus. Kata, performed by Sensei Luke Scott and Sam Kletz. Groundwork, performed by Danelle Sawer assisted by
Matthew Ayres. Takedowns performed by Taylor Greenhough assisted by Sam Heggarty. Ending with sport kumite, performed by Sensei Zach
Scott and Sensei Alex Hodge.

Congratulations to this years student of the year Lesley Roberts
