Sep 29/30 2018 – TUNZ National Champs


On 29/30 Sept, a small team attended the TUNZ National Champs in Porirua, Wellington, including Master Hamish and Gavin coaching and Graeme, Andrea, Zoe and Sam Brookes competing.  Gavin also refereed.


Graeme and Andrea both won their individual Poomsae divisions and together took out the pairs. Graeme was a particularly hard fought battle against what seems to be emerging as a repeat rival Craig from Cardinals club in Chch.


Sam and Zoe both did very well in their Poomsae – both getting silver.


In Kyorugi Sam faced a much larger opponent in a straight final and fought well, but unfrotuantely narrowly lost. Zoe did incredibly well, with two fairly tough fights and dominated both of them, taking out the gold.



Sam : Silver
Zoe: Silver
Andrea: Gold
Graeme: Gold
Graeme and Andrea pairs: Gold




Sam: Silver
Zoe: Gold






Sept 22 2018 – Club Grading


On Saturday 22 Sept, we held a club grading (along with guests from Moutere and Renwick clubs). 


It was a great day and lots of our junior belts graded.


Following the kids grading, 2 of our senior students, Gavin Gallot and Saphirra Harrington completed their Black Belt grading.  This was a gruelling experience that left them both nursing some battle injuries, but both were successful and did extremely well.


CONGRATULATIONS to all that graded!!
