Our team of five athletes competed at the New Zealand Open in Auckland (13th-14th May). Our Savannah A entered cadet black belt and breezed into the gold medal match. She won that by knock out in the first round. Alex J and David G won their first fight to make the semi only to lose narrowly earning them a bronze in the junior black and cadet black respectively. Josh C entered the black belt junior and met the eventual gold medal winner putting up a good fight but losing to a much more experienced fighter. Luke Walker won his heats in red middle weight seniors to easily win the final. Well done team!
Master Darryl Green officiated both days as a International referee utilising the new rules and built strong relationships with officials from around the world.
Thanks New Zealand you were great!
