Well done to the Jyoshinmon members from New Zealand and Australia who competed in the following tournaments in Sydney! Also good news for Sensei Jason Ng.
Senpai Sian Scott and Senpai Jose Castillo were invited by Karate Papamoa to join their team in the Kumite divisions at the Gojukai National Championships . Senpai Zak Scott was also invited but unfortunately he fell ill with a viral infection and had to be hospitalised. It was a pity he did not recover in time to participate as a Coach.
