Wow we had a CRAZY AMAZING time at Nationals last weekend!!! We kept you up to date over Nationals weekend through our members/parents only group but there are now also a whole lot of photos from the weekend here, and you can also check out an awesome video of Miss Giles and Miss Jaduramwho faced each other in their patterns division final.
We are really proud of the whole 13-strong team from Warrior and their tenacity! Everyone put their best effort in and supported each other at all the different events.
Our Warrior results were:
Roisin Giles - Gold, Kevin Matsuoka - Gold, Steve Milne - Gold, Kavita Jaduram - Silver, Diya Ciji - Silver, Michael Marcel - Silver, Jeremy Lin - Silver, Oliver Kelly - Silver, Anton Keay-Davies - Bronze, Tabitha Crump - Bronze
Kavita Jaduram - Gold, Diya Ciji - Silver, Tabitha Crump - Silver, Oliver Mason - Silver, Oliver Kelly - Bronze
Steve Milne - Bronze
We are also exceptionally proud of Miss Jeny Joseph who won Gup Student of the Year and Miss Kara Timmer who won Senior Sportsperson of the Year at the National Awards.
This week we farewell two really awesome members of the Warrior instructing team. Miss Roisin Giles is heading to Canada for 6 months, but will be back at the end of the year. She's already got a dojang sorted in Canada as she works toward the 2017 World Championships so hopefully we will hear some updates from the northern hemisphere over the coming months!
Miss Kavita Jaduram is starting a new job soon, so sadly she leaves our instructing team but will carry on as a member. Miss J is an incredible instructor and person, and was a founding member of Diocesan Taekwon-Do in 2003. She started assisting at the branch (long before it came under Warrior) when she was 16, and has been the Head Instructor for the last 4 years. Her genuine care and support of her students has ensured this club has flourished under her leadership and dedication. We are really thankful and proud of everything that Kavita has achieved as an instructor and student and wish her all the very best with this new chapter in her life.

Holiday Timetable Continues
We're still on our holiday timetable this week which seems to be working really well. Saturday class people, don't forget Saturday class is still on, Tuesday/Thursday 6.30pm people you are going to have an amazing time with Mr Topfer this week, and parents don't forget to bring you kids to Taekwon-Do so we can exercise out any excess energy in a convenient indoors location. ;) If you're not sure when to come during the holidays (as our timetable is a bit different from usual til the end of this week) you can check it out on our website here.
Have a great week!
