2016 Northland Open - 15th May 2016

The 2016 Northland Open was held in Whangarei on the 15th May.  This year our club donated a Bob Dalton Memorial Cup to go to the winning club on the day.
It was awarded to the club with the most gold medals on the day, which this year went to Miyagikan Karate Do Gojuryu, so well done to them.
It is nice to have Sensei Bob remembered in this way.
Our club looked very smart with their new club t-shirts and we had a record 47 entries with most having a go for the very first time.

We were well represented in both Kata and Kumite.  Your first tournament is always the worst so well done to everyone. The competitors learned what it takes to compete, and our instructors learned a lot about what it takes to coach at that level. Rome wasn’t built in a day and everyone will be better for the experience.

There were too many medals won to mention everyone but a few did stand out.  Michelle and London-Rose for smiling right through their fights, Tyler for winning two golds and Holly for winning Kata.

A special thanks to Matthew Baird and Matt Burns for doing the referees course in the morning, then spending the rest of the day refereeing (long day).

Thanks to Lisa Jones for running the canteen we made $470 and thanks to Penny, Shelley, Kristy and Yvette for working as marshals.

It was a real club day with 47 entered plus support people and instructors.  I hope everyone had fun and enjoyed their karate.

So keep coming to club and working hard and next year we will take our cup back.

and of course the, Karatedo Shitokai New Zealand Team
