KARATE

THE Whit­sun­day and Proser­pine Kyokushin Karate clubs held grad­ings ear­lier this month, with a host of mem­bers grad­u­at­ing to their next Kyu.

The grad­ing took place on May 2 at the Proser­pine dojo, where Shi­han Wayne Hin­schen over­saw pro­ceed­ings and suc­cess­fully passed all par­tic­i­pants.

Liam Stephens and Dal­las Wood­ham moved up to their third Kyu while Joel Crook, Sa­man­tha Di­a­mond and Ja­cob Far­rell are now level four.

Keiren Munck­ton was the only mem­ber to move to his sev­enth Kyu but it was a dif­fer­ent story in lev­els eight, nine and 10.

Mya Mur­ray, Is­abelle Gra­ham, Sa­mara Gra­ham, Emma Carr, Lisa Stan­ley, Vel­vet Heat­ley, Cooper San­der, Jai San­der, Zach Blazely and To­mas Foster moved onto their eighth Kyu while Ce­leste Hardy-Young, Scott Hardy, Bren­ton Tay­lor, Amy Read, Kay Foster, Kevin To­mas, Nate Har­ri­son, Josh Smith, Will Smith, Ai­den Payet and Mila Ju­lian-TeKiri are now level nine.
