World Junior & Cadet Championships - 7-10 Novembr 2013
[Pictured above as the teams were lining up are Mexha Sane and Zak Scott]
Jyoshinmon had 4 members representing New Zealand at the World Junior & Cadet Championships & -21 World Cup held in Guadalajara, Spain:
For Mexha and Zak, this was their first experience of world-level competition and the standard was higher than in previous championships. Although the results were not as we hoped, it was beneficial for those who took part as each tournament is a stepping stone to improvement.
Also an opportunity to visit a new countries, meet other karate champions and have well-deserved fun after all the training!
