2021 GC Karate Competition

Such a great fun day.  Our first tournament for nearly 2 years was restricted to just members of the Gold Coast dojo which meant that we had lots of first timers (& a few rusty old timers), participation numbers very well above what we expected which was great to see.  The standard of competition was very strong with lots of very close matches across all divisions. With some more experience under their belts there will be some very high level competitors representing the Gold Coast dojo in the future.

Tournaments are all about challenging yourself and overcoming your fears and this was the most please part of the day as we saw many karateka put aside their nerves to perform very strongly.  Well done to everyone who stepped up to the challenge.

A massive thanks also to our three fantastic referee’s who judged every event with hardly a break. Sensei Monica, Sensei Sam and Sensei Kazumi Thank you very much 🙂

And also a big thank you to Levi Lenton who did an awesome job marshaling so we could keep everything running smoothly.

And finally thank you to all the parents and supporters for your patience and understanding in having to watch the events from outside the dojo to comply with our Covid number restrictions.
