Fam­ily aims higher

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

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.
