Congratulations to all members that competed, coached, judged and attended the event to support the Academy.  The AKA had the most students entered and may have come away with the biggest medal hall. Tony Hansen and Jeremy Creese enjoyed their first opportunity to both judge and referee at an actual tournament on the day.  Instructors Cheyne, Gayleen and Bob McMahon and Julie Sparks coached. With a lot of first timers competing in the younger age events, and some with just one tournament under their belt, there were some great performances.  Our experienced students did very well indeed with Grace Kruger winning both her Kata and Kumite events and Hugo winning the Black Belt section of the John Halpin ‘Special Kata Competition’ and both Kumite in the Male Open and his age Division in the Junior Kata. Special mention to Harry Hillman (8 years), Daniel Perez, Chris Wilson and Ava Deag (9 yrs) , Alex Rowe (10 yrs), and William Whitlock (11 yrs) .  All tried very hard and put in a solid effort.  Scott Fisher ( Green Belt was in with the Brown and Black Belts) did remarkably well in the Kumite in his first ever competition.  Results were-
