Family aims higher
AFTER checking out the results of the Brisbane titles, it is probably a wise idea not to cross the Dyers.
Tessie Dyer got the family off to a dream start as she claimed her first bronze medal in the beginners under-150cm Kumite.
Not to be outdone by their young daughter, parents Jason and Fiona finished first and third in both kata and kumite for 6-4 Kyu Open events.
The results are just some highlights of TSKF Childers Karate Club’s last month, in which they competed at the NSW Titles as well as graded 29 members.
Nine members competed at the NSW Titles in Lismore on November 8, and club instructor John Russo praised the competitors’ efforts.
“I was very pleased with the overall results,” Russo said.
“This will give them all valuable experience towards the Australasian Championships which will be held in March (next year) at the Gold Coast.”
The club will hold their final training night of the year on Monday, December 15, a night which will incorporate end of year presentations.
The club will resume training on January 13 next year, with their annual Woodgate training weekend on February 7 and 8.
