2013 Hamilton Open - Sunday 24th March 2013
Shitokai New Zealand Honbu and Kamo took eight competitors to the Hamilton Open, five from Kamo dojo and three from Honbu dojo. The eight competitors were: Yvette Hendrickse, Olivia Crum , Harrison Higgins, Connor Lynch, Nick Foulkes, Sophie Weber, Isaac ones, and Dan Burns.
Both clubs are in a rebuilding phase for competition, as new young members come through and at the Hamilton Open four competitors had their first taste of competition. However, the overall results were very good, with two silver forn the Kamo club and two bronze medals from the Honbu club.
These were won by Nick Foulkes in the 14-15 year +60kg premier Kumite and Isaac Jones in the 14-15 year development kumite.
In Kata, Yvette Henrickse won bronze in 10-11 years female premier Kata and Olivia Crum in 12-13 years premier Kata.
The Hamilton Open is the biggest regional tournament in NZ and there were over 180 competitors, making it a long day, but a worthwhile one.
