GYMPIE’S JKS Karate Club has competed in its first tournament since forming in August last year.

The tournament was staged in Pomona late last month and although braving competition for the very first time, the Gympie club excelled.

Club president Hamid Mostofizadeh was impressed with the results.

“After hard (work) and dedicated training, the participants were very successful,” he said.

Results included: Beth Newton – 1st Kata. Dustin Mostofizadeh – 3rd Kata, 3rd Kumite. Leon Bath – 2nd Kata, 2nd Kumite. Tracey Roach – 3rd Kata. Daria Mostofizadeh – 1st Kata, 2nd Kumite. David Mostofizadeh – 3rd Kata.

Meanwhile, the club has celebrated a special visit last week from Sensei Akio and student Yuya, from the JKS Japan headquarters. The pair visited the Gympie club along with head instructor Sensei Kanaya.

“The club is looking forward to welcome Sensei Akio and one of his students next year,” Mostofizadeh said.
