At the JKA/WF QLD Open Championships, AKA members did very well. We had 8 Juniors and 7 adults compete and between them picked up 10 Gold, 8 Silver and 7 Bronze Medals from individual and team kata and individual kumite. Several members won two gold medals. Most improved in the juniors was Grace Kruger and Jeremy Creese in the Seniors. Gutsiest performance in the Juniors was by Ella Williams in kumite, awesome in battling much bigger girls. Nearly all of our senior men were having their first foray into competition and not a tear was shed. Condolences to Sensei Cheyne who had to pull out with an injury but he did a great job as a judge on the day. Congratulations to the JKA/WF for putting on a great tournament.
