2009 AKKA National Championships

Yesterday, Saturday 8th August saw the Australian Kyokushin Non Contact Karate Championships being held. My eldest son competed in the Male 10 -12 year age division. This was his fight tournament back after a major cut on his foot had him totally incapacitated for about a month in June. We of course hoped he would do well. He just wanted to get out there, try his best and test his foot under those conditions. Well he did us and himself proud. His division the biggest with over 40 entrants, which meant 4 knock out rounds, semi finals then finals. Daniel made it all the way to the semi finals, only to be beaten by the eventual gold medalist. So that earned Daniel a bronze medal and 3 place overall in Australia for his age. He was so happy and we are so proud of his achievements. And to top the day off, Daniel's girlfriend also received a bronze medal in her age division. Congratulations to you both on your awesome achievements. All the hard work and dedication to your training has paid off.
