Event Report

Mr. Casey welcomed all, thanking everyone for their attendance and once all information regarding the States and the National titles was given the official bow-In was done, Mr. Casey instructed all Officials to get their rings organized and begin their first division for the day.

New clubs attending for the first time displayed excellent talent in both forms and sparring, this really kept a lot of the regular attendees on their toes.  There was no doubt that they will be a force to be reckoned with at future events!

High lights of the day…Male black belt open forms competition as usual had the highest of standards.  Mathew Densmore – RMAA Shotokan had all judges agree his performance was the best of the morning, awarding him scores to put him into 1st place, not too far off the mark and in 2nd place was Sifu Jason King – Brisbane Kung Fu, in 3rd place was Mark Stone = RMMA.  Point sparring final saw Mark Stone come up against Carl Argunda – Black Eagle Arnis, both utilizing their fast arm and leg techniques trying to outscore each other, however Mark using his long reach of arms and legs just outscores his opponent giving him 1st place and Carl in 2nd, with 3rd place going to Matthew Densmore.

Demonstration divisions got off to a great start and the spectators were treated to some excellent performances from various styles.  Creative Weaponry Extreme Senior, in 1st place Jason King – Brisbane Kung Fu, and 2nd place going to Greg Williamson JMAMA, 3rd place going to Robert Searle also of JMAMA.  Traditional Weaponry 0-12yrs, taking out 1st place Zoe Petri - JMAMA, 2nd place going to Noah Anderson – RMAA and 3rd going to Jackson Neil also of RMAA; Traditional Weaponry 13-17yrs was an all-out RMAA win taking 1st place Harriet Knijff and in 2nd place Jai Anderson with Oliver Lowry in 3rd place.  Traditional Weaponry Senior, 1st place went to Greg Williamson - JMAMA, Karen Young – RMAA, 2nd place, and 3rd place going to Robert Searle - JMAMA.  Demonstration 0-12yrs, had Elizabeth Reimers – Bonsai Karate take home 1st place.

The aged divisions between 11yrs down to under 7 years Pee Wee’s are always assured to have large numbers of competitors with enthusiasm and attitude sent to test their Officials and this was true with the following divisions and although we are unable to mention them all we certainly congratulate them all for a good day of competition and sportsmanship they show each other off and on the mate.  The Pee Wee’s point sparring final was such a division which had mums, dads and coaches sitting on the edge of their seats. RMAA teammates Brodie and Shanthosh were out to make their mark in this division...both were on fire; Brodie came out with all guns blazing scoring with a quick concession of punches to take first points assuring his 1st place leaving Shanthosh in 2nd with Edward Cole in 3rd place.

Male 10 to 11 years continuous division showcased technique and ring craft which had all barracking for the youngsters, the final saw in 1st Stirling Bayliss – Bubishi M/A with 2nd place going to Samuel Reimers – Bonsai Karate with Rikkie Alder and in 3rd place, all had to compete a large number of children within this division to be victorious, we congratulate you all. 

Female 12 – 14 years continuous division saw competitors being eliminated with mixed feelings, however in the final Samantha Densmore – RMAA Shotokan coming up against Aaliyah Barrett-Collins – Kung Fu Southside…talk about a nail biter, this match had everything, excellent ring craft, spectacular kicking combinations.  Eventual winner Samantha Densmore, taking home 3rd place Mackenzie Pitchford - Bubishi M/A.  

Finally, to the NAS officials and staff who put on their black and whites and generously give up their day to ensure the NAS competitor has the best tournament experience possible…thank you all so very much.  To Mrs. Caroline Kennedy for over-seeing the table officials, many thanks! 

Special thanks to Kristy Heitman for being our safeguard for those who are injured throughout the day.

We look forward to seeing everyone in November.

Congratulations to all attended as you’re all invites to be part of the Queensland State Team at the NAS National event here on the Gold Coast 26th & 27th November.
