JKS Karate club strikes success

GYMPIE JKS Karate Club instructors Andrew Quinn and Hamid Mostofizadeh witness the dedication of their students every week, so weren’t surprised at the club’s success at the recent Karate Queensland State Championships.

The Queensland event was hosted by Gympie at the Pavilion last Sunday and Gympie competitors performed extremely well.

“The club was established only one year ago and since then its members have successfully participated in three tournaments,” club secretary Johanna Mostofizadeh said.

“After many weeks of intense and time consuming training, the students carried their well deserved medals with joy and pride after the tournament.”

Johanna thanked the many sponsors whose continued support allowed the club to prosper.
