EVA Lorenz is the lat­est black belt from the Air­lie Beach branch fol­low­ing the re­cent South Pa­cific Taek­wondo dis­trict grad­ing held in Bowen on Septem­ber 8.

The lo­cal teenager put on a spec­tac­u­lar dis­play of skill and power to achieve a high stan­dard, pass­ing her grad­ing with a credit.

On the day, the grad­ing in­volved a rig­or­ous mul­ti­skill ex­am­i­na­tion of tech­niques in­clud­ing pat­terns, low con­tact spar­ring and break­ing boards, cul­mi­nat­ing with a gru­elling free spar with other black belts in­clud­ing dis­trict in­struc­tors tak­ing turns to fight her.

The 14-year-old was also joined by 28 other stu­dents from across the re­gion in­clud­ing Air­lie Beach, Collinsville and Bowen clubs who were put through their paces for grad­ing.

For any­one in­ter­ested in tak­ing part in South Pa­cific Taek­wondo, call 4724 1000 for more in­for­ma­tion.
