Rd 3 Queensland - 16th July 2017


Fantastic day of sportsmanship shared by all!


NAS Queensland region saw a great response from both near and far with many new styles enjoying the concept of NAS competition for the first time, held at the Runaway Bay Indoor Stadium … Special mention must go to all those Instructors/competitors and families who made the long journey from Lismore, Brisbane and Gympie, Ipswich and North Coast for a great day’s competition, great to see martial artists so keen.



After debriefing with all coaches, Instructor and officials regarding the day’s event everyone lined up for the official bow-in.  Action started off with male black belt and veteran’s divisions. Male black belt forms divisions where well represented with some excellent standouts, taking out 1st place, Joshua Wiltshire (RMAA), 2nd place Scott Hampson (Seishin Ryu), 3rd place Mikey Fleming (Bonsai Karate). Point sparring finals was a hard-fought bout between Joshua Wiltshire (RMAA) and Scott Hampson (Seishin Ryu), both guys wouldn’t give an inch throughout the match however Joshua’s experience and ring craft saw him take the lead towards the end of the match and the victory, 3rd place going to Carl Arganda (Black Eagle Arnis).

Continuous sparring is always an exciting division to watch, very similar to kick boxing but without the unrestrained contact and competitors are able to use all kinds of techniques, including leg-kicking, which makes for some very explosive matches.
